What Is More Important to Obama than the Economy?

Written by Drew on January 26th, 2009

ObamaAbortion, it seems.

In a move signaling more to come in the Obama presidency, the President signed legislation lifting a ban dating back to the Reagan era on federal funding of international abortions.  The Wall Street Journal reports:

President Barack Obama quietly overturned the “global gag rule” Friday, allowing U.S. foreign-aid dollars to flow again to international family-planning programs that offer abortion or advocate for abortion rights.

He also said he would work to restore funding for the United Nations Population Fund, which pays for similar family-planning programs in a wider range of countries. And he vowed to search for common ground between people on both sides of the issue.

In related news, Obama’s $825 billion-dollar economic stimulus package includes “hundreds of millions of dollars” for contraceptives, according to Senator John Boehner.

So America’s in a recession, and instead of talking about cuts in spending, President Obama is making it a priority to fund abortions in other countries and buy contraceptives to encourage young people to have “safe sex.”  All of this is paid for with our tax dollars.

God help us.

    Certainly not change we can believe in.

    Finally, a president who cares about the issues of his people, and not the presumed majority.

    To a president, aren’t “the people” and the “presumed majority” the same thing?

    It is now time for our generation to prepare our children (with every ounce of effort we can muster) to be true followers of Christ!

    We have lost our moral moorings. We have exchanged our values for valuables.

    We are losing so many young people in the church these days (55% – 75% estimated). This is not the youth minister’s fault. It is not the local congregation’s fault. It is the parent’s fault!

    Multi-generational discipleship. It starts in the home. Training outside of the home should be gravy.

    Jason – I agree with you that it starts on the home, but I don’t think you should blame parents for the adult child’s behavor. I know of (now adult) children who have left the church and were raised in very loving, Christian homes and “its not the parents fault.”

    Please don’t ever tell a parent that its his or her fault that the child is not a Christian.

    I think that all congregations should check up on people who have fallen away.
