Obama speech sickening


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript: 

I’ve been fighting within myself over a need to write a letter about President Obama and his speech before Planned Parenthood.

On the one hand, of course, I realize that it won’t change his mind. On the other hand, it will make me feel better. 

Looks like me-feeling-better won. So, here it is: Our president makes me sick. Not sick to my stomach. 

Sick to my heart and deep inside my soul. President Obama concluded his remarks with a, “God bless you” for an organization that is, in effect, pro-abortion.

I’m reminded of the oft-heard shout from Rev. Jeremiah Wright, “Not, God bless America, God ... America!”  We should all fear the wrath of God. He is patient. But He is righteous and will not wait forever to punish. 

President Obama is the leader of our government. He could do something legislatively. He has the bully pulpit. He uses it, not to speak for pre-born babies, but to praise people who destroy life.

President Obama is a Christian. Oh my, I just thought, how incredible it would be if he wrote a letter to the editor professing his belief that his savior was surely pro-life. And still is.
