What is the president saying with his Mandate?
Here is what he is saying: human life is a disease. It must be contained. It is not the fruit of loving relationships. It is the hindrance to your fulfillment, not the source of your fulfillment.
Even more, the president is saying that willful infertility is healthy.
Do you agree? You may. Many Americans do.
They have been seduced by the Culture of Self, the culture that says life is all about you.
The implications of this philosophy are very serious when the State imposes this Secular Humanistic religion on other religions, as President Obama is doing to the Catholic Church. The president and his secretary of state no longer talk about a freedom of religion, they have reduced the First Amendment to a toleration of “freedom to worship.” In other words, the suggestion from this administration is that religion should be kept behind closed doors. There is no public right to interfere with the established state religion, Secular Humanism.
What a corrupt and ugly view Mr. Obama and his people have of life. Human life must be suppressed, they suggest. It is treated like a disease.
They reject with every ounce of their political clout that human life is a gift from God. Even more, they are imposing it on people of faith through the brute force of the state they control.
Everyone thought this year’s election would be all about the Obama deficits and Obamanomics.
Now it looks as if it is going to be about much more.
It will be about Obama’s hijacking of marriage and family. These fundamental building blocks of civil society have been made wards of the state.
At the United Nations 1994 Cairo World Conference on Population and Development, a Dutch politician stood up and crudely expressed what has become the operating philosophy of the America Left:
“Let’s stop fooling around here. What we’re talking about is our right to f*** whoever we want, however we want, whenever we want.”
The president is more eloquent than this. His message is the same.
