Obama Using Faith-Based Programs To Push Ideology Of Global Warming, Climate Change, Green IssuesTopics: Political News and commentaries
Unquestionably, Barack Obama is sinisterly focused on using federal subsidies offered through the EPA and his faith-based outreach to get churches to promulgate the green faith. And the same Left that criticized Bush's genuine and legitimate faith-based initiative now either ignores or embraces Obama's using his faith-based program to push global warming, climate change, and green initiatives on America's churches and he's doing so by brazenly coupling his faith-based council with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Warner Todd Huston writes:
Widely reviled by the left, Bush's faith-based initiatives were claimed to be evidence that Bush was a "religious zealot" trying to destroy America with evil Christianity. Now, two years into the Obama administration, we are seeing what Obama intends to do with his continuation of Bush's faith-based offices: he wants to use them to push the religion of Greenicanism on America's churches.Read more ...
The question that immediately comes to mind, of course, is if the left will explode in excoriation of Obama's faith-based policies as it did with Bush's?
The left was out of its mind over Bush's ideas. In 2004, for instance, the website TheocracyWatch.org hyperbolically said, "Under the Bush administration, our country is experiencing a major transformation from a secular to a religious government. The President's faith-based initiative is central to this transformation and raises serious questions about church-state separation." This was the left-wing talking points du jour on Bush's faith-based programs.
[...] As with most things that Obama says, this claim that was then. While Obama is following the left-wing penchant to eschew actual religiosity, Obama has apparently decided that his own special brand of religion would be what is promulgated with his continuation of Bush's faith-based policies. The money he's spending to "proselytize" his green ideas apparently doesn't strike him as a violation of his 2008 proclamations.
