Christian Radio Show Attacks Obama For Allowing Hindu to Speak (Audio)
On the Liberty Counsel's "Faith and Freedom" radio program today, Mat Staver and Matt Barber condemned President Obama for allowing Rajiv Shah, a Hindu USAID official, to give the keynote address at the National Prayer Breakfast last month.
According to RightWingWatch.org, Barber said that the National Prayer Breakfast organizers never should have agreed to allow an "anti-Christian speaker" who "doesn't mention Jesus" (audio below).
However, in reality, Shah is not "anti-Christian" and mentioned Jesus in a positive light several times during his speech about helping the poor (which Jesus taught many times), according to a transcript on the USAID website.
"This is President Obama who brings into the National Prayer Breakfast someone who doesn't mention Jesus, somebody who is not a Christian, somebody who is not a believer in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob," said Staver. "This is Obama, who goes after Little Sisters of the Poor because he doesn't really care for religious freedom."
However, Obama has not gone after the Little Sisters of the Poor, a Catholic group that refuses to sign religious freedom exemption from Obamacare.
"Shame on the organizers of the National Prayer Breakfast," added Barber. "They should have just let the chips fall where they may. President Obama clearly hates Christianity. He claims to be a Christian, but he hates what the Bible teaches, so let him not come. That speaks volumes. The American people already know he's anti-Christian. Just let him be anti-Christian. They don't need an anti-Christian speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast."
Barber did not provide any proof that Obama "hates what the Bible teaches" or "clearly hates Christianity."
