Obama's Coercive Secular State

"It's a scary time to be a Christian," to paraphrase his ads.

The absence of free contraceptives, abortifacients, STD testing, and sterilizations, among other Sebelius-decreed "essential" services, constitutes a "war on women," says President Obama. "It's a scary time to be a woman," warbles a stooge in one of his campaign ads.

Obama's arrogance is bottomless. Even as he violates the freedom of the religious -- reducing them to the status of serfs in his planned secularist and socialist state -- he has the gall to cast them as the victimizers.

Under this coercive secular state, Christian values are no longer American values. Obama's former chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel, has made this view official by threatening to ban Christian businesses like Chick-fil-A that appear out of step with "Chicago values."

If Obama wins a second term, Americans will be expected to conform not only to Chicago-style politics but also to "Chicago values." Opponents of gay marriage will be treated as enemies of the state. Obama's military already tells chaplains and privates who dissent from Obama's agenda to "get out."

As reported by the Washington Times in 2010, Lieutenant General Thomas P. Bostick, the Army's deputy chief of staff in charge of personnel, showered withering contempt on traditionally Christian members of the military: "Unfortunately, we have a minority of service members who are still racists and bigoted and you will never be able to get rid of all of them.… But these people opposing this new policy [in favor of abolishing Don't Ask, Don't Tell] will need to get with the program, and if they can't, they need to get out."

Admiral Michael Mullen, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, echoed this line, telling a military chaplain who opposed the abolition of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy in 2010, "If you cannot get in line, resign your commission."

Get out of the military, get out of major cities -- this is the voice of Obama's commissars from San Francisco to Boston in his war on the religious. He is building a secularist and socialist animal farm in which no higher power exists than the will of the new Napoleons.
