After SCOTUS Redefines Meaning of Marriage, Obama Pivots to Attacking Freedom of Religion

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After the Supreme Court ruling on Friday legalizing homosexual marriage in all 50 states, Barack Obama called upon his followers to “help people overcome their religious convictions.” After all, we can’t have pesky religious freedom interfere with Obama’s fundamental transformation of America.

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]We must, as Hillary Clinton said, change our deep-seated religious beliefs and embrace what we are told we should by the government. Freedom of choice does not apply when it comes to religious beliefs that get in the way of the progressive agenda, unless of course those religious beliefs are that of Islam, then the left quite often makes exceptions.

During a speech delivered after the SCOTUS ruling, Obama said, “I know that Americans of goodwill continue to hold a wide range of views on this issue.”

He continued, Opposition in some cases has been based on sincere and deeply held beliefs. All of us who welcome today’s news should be mindful of that fact. Recognize different viewpoints. Revere our deep commitment to religious freedom.”

Then came the “but” that negated his supposed revered deep commitment to religious freedom. (Not surprising since the Obama administration has gone after groups and businesses in order to force them to violate their religious liberty.)

[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]“But today should also give us hope that on the many issues with which we grapple often painfully real change is possible,” Obama lectured.

“Shifts in hearts and minds is possible. And those who have come so far on their journey to equality have a responsibility to reach back and help others join them. Because for all our differences, we are one people — stronger together than we could ever be alone.”


“That’s always been our story. We are big and vast, and diverse. A nation of people with different backgrounds and beliefs, with different experiences and stories, but bound by our shared ideal that no matter who you are, or what you look like, how you started off, or how and who you love — America’s a place where you can write your own destiny.”

Now get rid of those deep-seated religious convictions and prepare for someone to pull you to full acceptance and embracing of homosexual marriage. You are not allowed to simply live your own life and tolerate that such marriages are now legal. You MUST celebrate and embrace it.

So says Barack Obama.
