There are a lot of principled reasons to oppose the Obama presidency, not the least of which is “the worst fiscal record of any president in modern times.” I wonder how any person of faith could vote for Obama in light of his administration’s unprecedented and brazen assaults on religious freedom: first, the revision of the “ministerial exemption” in employment disputes, which was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in a 9-0 ruling; second, the mandate that religious universities, hospitals, and charities pay for health insurance that covers sterilization, contraceptives, and abortifacients. Christians of conservative and liberal persuasions are rightly outraged. (Read this letter to the President by religious leaders in the Protestant and Jewish faith communities who are “deeply troubled” by the actions of the Obama administration.)
