Rev. Michael Schuermann calls out the president for confusing his office and for taking God’s name in vain:
President Obama spoke to Planned Parenthood this morning (Friday, April 26th). He said all sorts of things. Yet what was most galling, at least in my mind, is how he ended his speech. Here’s what he said:
“As long as we’ve got to fight to make sure women have access to quality, affordable health care, and as long as we’ve got to fight to protect a woman’s right to make her own choices about her own health, I want you to know that you’ve also got a president who’s going to be right there with you, fighting every step of the way,” said Obama. “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”
No, Mr. President. You have authority from God to exercise your leadership of the country for the good of its citizens. You have authority from God to call out an organization which exists in order to murder – and advocate for the ever-increasing “legality” of such murder – the most helpless among us, namely the unborn (or even the born).
