Right Wing Rant: Obama is Ordering Christians to Kill Children
Gordon Klingenschmitt has made many headlines of late while discussing the president on his Pray in Jesus Name show and most recently warned that Obama is forcing Christians to kill children as part of “a spiritual war to save or destroy unborn babies and the elderly.”
In an email to his followers, Klingenschmitt discussed the Supreme Court Hobby Lobby case, writing “How dare President Obama order Christians to kill children? How dare any Justice consider ordering Christians to kill children? It’s bad enough they kill children on their own without our help. But now they demand we pay for it to?”
He goes on to cite the abortion statute in the Affordable Care Act, saying “Democrats lied when they claimed to prevent public tax-payer funding of abortion, and mandated private funding of abortion (as if that should be allowed either). And Planned Parenthood clearly lied in their analysis of the law, when they claimed “forcing individuals to write two separate checks (both of which are out of private funds) and requiring health plans to administer two different payments of private funds is not necessary to insure public funds are not used for abortion care.” No public funds? Really?
“They lied, plain and simple, because the law quoted above now reads ABORTIONS FOR WHICH PUBLIC FUNDING IS ALLOWED through the Department of Health and Human Services, subsidizing child-killing of innocents with your tax-dollars, so welfare-moms can kill their child for a $12 co-pay, while Planned Parenthood gets rich charging YOU thousands of tax dollars against your will. No wonder both Stupak and Nelson were labeled traitors by every credible pro-life group in America.
“Friends, our nation stands in the midst of a spiritual war to save or destroy unborn babies and the elderly. You and I stand in this battle together. We must stand strong!”
Of course, the language that he cites doesn’t quite say what he says it says. Representative Ron Kind explains that “The Hyde Amendment specifically is not included in the bill though the language included in the bill accomplishes what the Hyde Amendment seeks to do – preventing federal funding for abortions except in the instances of rape, incest, or to protect the life of the mother. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act maintains current law regarding federal funding for abortion services.”
