Barack Obama is no longer president, but that doesn’t mean the Family Research Council won’t keep on raising money off fears that Obama will take away the religious liberty of American Christians.
In a fundraising email today with the subject line “Obama’s ‘shadow government’ targets you,” FRC President Tony Perkins writes that Obama is “still a serious threat to your religious freedom,” as he is running a “shadow government” from his “mansion command center” in Washington, D.C., where he is working to “undermine President Trump” and destroy religious freedom.
HOW OBAMA’S “SHADOW GOVERNMENT” THREATEN
YOUR VALUES…FROM ONLY ABOUT
TWO MILES FROM THE WHITE HOUSE!
Ex-President Obama is out of office. But after six months, he’s still a serious threat to your religious freedom.
He even purchased a mansion command center within walking distance of the White House. His political right arm, Valerie Jarrett, moved in with the family to continue the Obama post-presidency influence. From that location, he can work to undermine President Trump. And according to former Attorney General Eric Holder, “He’s ready to roll.”
In what Washington analysts describe as a “soft coup,” Barack Obama and his operatives both outside and inside the government are participating in activities to derail conservative policies, including recent gains made on behalf of faith, family, and freedom.
And their war chest is bulging with millions of dollars from the likes of George Soros, Hollywood moguls, and liberal dot.com CEOs.
Nothing like this has been seen in American history-and it must be opposed, or it will succeed.
During Obama’s eight years in office, same-sex marriage became the law of the land…schools were forced to open their restrooms to members of the opposite sex…nuns were ordered to fund drugs that can destroy human embryos in their health insurance plans…military chaplains were punished for teaching biblical values…and Christian business owners were given the choice to leave their Christian beliefs at the door or face crippling fines.
On the other hand, President Trump is remaining true to his promise to protect our First Amendment rights. On the National Day of Prayer, he issued an executive order to safeguard many religious freedoms. But the battle for religious freedom in America is far from won.
Former President Obama’s Organizing for Action money machine has raised millions of dollars in order to unleash a storm of agitation against President Trump’s pro-life and religious freedom action items. And Organizing for Action is trying to influence Congress against faith, family, and freedom.
Last month, Perkins warned in a fundraising email that Obama was “behind the mobilization of tens of thousands of paid radical agitators” at GOP town hall meetings and “a torrent of suspicious leaks.”
