Sort of like the antagonists in the first “Raiders of the Lost Ark” movie, they just HAVE to open up what they really don’t respect or understand because it appears to be a convenient powerful tool to manipulate in accomplishing their ends:
Obama: “I believe in country that rewards hard work and responsibility, a country where we look after one another, a country where I say I’m my brother’s keeper, I’m my sister’s keeper.”
Right. That particular quote is pulled from the story of Cain & Abel – you know, Cain killed his brother Abel & buried the body in a field because Cain was envious to the point of bloodlust revenge over God accepting the sacrifice of Abel. “Am I my brothers’ keeper” is the question Cain asks God when God asks him “where is your brother Abel?” (clearly knowing exactly what happened). Did Obama not know that when he used it as an example of what we SHOULD do - or was he hoping we didn’t?
Why does he skip over these particular scriptures?
2Thessalonians 3:10: For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.”

“This is a president that reaches out to Americans of all faiths – to Muslims and Buddhists, and every Christian denomination. We need a president with arms reaching out in that kind of interfaith way,” Schneck said
…the folks who organized getting the ad together want to ensure everybody understands what’s at stake not only for the Church, but for the country, when religious liberty is compromised.”…religious liberty faces “an unprecedented threat” from the HHS mandate, which “undermines the promise of the First Amendment.”
