EXPOSING OBAMA’S WAR ON FAITH – Religious Freedom Coalition newspaper adstelling of the Obama Administration’s threats to religious freedom begin running on May 13th. The first newspaper to accept the ad was the Panama City News Herald. This newspaper is in the Panhandle of Florida, in an area that has a large military presence. Many of those living in the area fought for religious freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan, only to see Christians persecuted by the predominantly Muslim governments there.On May 16th the ads will appear in the Washington County News in Chipley, FL and the Holmes County Times Advertiser in Bonifay, FL. The ads’ schedule will start to move south along the Florida Gulf Coast with areas around Tampa and Naples in the next few weeks. We will not advertise in the very liberal Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida newspapers. It is not our goal to anger liberals, but to encourage social conservatives to contact their congressmen and Senators to demand that Congress block President Barack Obama’s continued attacks on religious liberty.

OBAMA’S GAY AGENDA – Obama has moved back to the position he had on same-sex marriage in 1996. In a typed and signed statement, Obama said: “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages, and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” Then, when he ran for the Senate in 2004 he said marriage should be between a man and a woman. While running for president he said he was against same-sex marriage, but this week he declared he was for it. What changed his mind back to his 1996 position? Money. Several gay “super-pacs” informed Obama that unless he backed same-sex marriage they would spend no money on his reelection. A man of principle Obama is not.
GOVERNMENT RATHER THAN GOD – Just what Obama ordered: One in five Americans-the highest percentage in the nation’s history-relies on the federal government for benefits, ranging from housing, health care, and food stamps to college tuition and retirement assistance. That’s more than 67.3 million Americans who receive subsidies from Washington. The federal government spent more taxpayer dollars than ever before in 2011 to subsidize Americans. The average individual who relies on Washington could receive benefits valued at $32,748, which is more than the nation’s average disposable personal income ($32,446). Read more
PROTECTING CHAPLAINS – Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) added an amendment to the FY2013 National Defense Authorization Act, which protects the rights of conscience of military chaplains. Akin, who is a member of the Prayer Caucus, announced that he will offer an amendment to the bill to provide specific conscience and religious freedom protections for military chaplains and other service members. Akin said, “Chaplains and service members should not face recrimination or persecution in the military for standing strong on their religious beliefs in opposition to homosexuality. A military chaplain is charged with meeting the religious needs of all of those under his or her care, but that chaplain must also remain true to their own faith.” Rep. Akin’s amendment draws from the Military Religious Freedom Protection Act (H.R. 3828) introduced by Rep. Tim Huelskamp, which would provide similar protections for service members. The bill was passed out of committee with Congressman Akin’s amendment being approved. Read more
