Obama agenda: Prayers and politics

“President Obama yesterday told the National Prayer Breakfast that God serves as his top adviser for pushing higher taxes on wealthy Americans and other lofty policy goals,” the New York Post chides. “ ‘For me, as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus’ teaching that ‘for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,’ ‘ the president preached to the 3,000 people at the annual spiritual gathering. Like Moses descending from Mount Sinai, Obama had a list of policies that God himself would endorse. Obama extolled the virtues of his Wall Street reforms, ObamaCare laws that stop insurance companies from ‘discriminating against those who are already sick,’ and proposed rules to crack down on mortgage lenders.”
