"Did President Obama Mislead the Holy Father?"

HotAir's headline link to Inside Catholic's story was that "not even the Pope is safe from Obama's abortion lies." Inside Catholic wrote:

"Did President Obama Mislead the Holy Father?"

"In the late afternoon of July 10, President Obama met privately with Pope Benedict XVI for just over 30 minutes. According to official Vatican spokesman Rev. Federico Lombardi, S.J., "The president explicitly expressed his commitment to reducing the numbers of abortions and to listen to the church's concern on moral issues."

"On July 13 in a Senate committee hearing, Sen. Barbara Mikulski was forced to admit under persistent questioning by Sen. Orrin Hatch that the new health-care bill includes abortion coverage. Planned Parenthood's Guttmacher Institute estimates government funding of abortion increases abortion by 20 to 35 percent." Did President Obama know these abortion provisions were in the Senate health-care bill when he met with the Holy Father? There is no reason to think he didn't."


It goes on. Hardball's Chris Matthews, a Catholic Obama enthusiast but is so in love with Obama that merely being in Obama's his presence sends a "thrill up his leg," "insisted that including abortion services in the health bill is "the last thing Obama needs. The issue's complicated and divisive and controversial enough without bringing abortion into it."

But then Matthews adds the kicker:

"He goes over to see the pope and says they're going to reduce the number of abortions, and then that same week he pushes to subsidize abortion? You can't do that!"

What will be the reaction of most of America's Catholics and Christians when they realize that Obama looked Benedict right in the eye and said he was committed to reducing abortion, knowing all the while that his bill subsidizes abortions? I know what mine is. The bible says that "For such men are false apostles, deceitful workers, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds."

Satan is the father of lies. ‘He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it’ (John 8:42–44). Lies fall as easily from his lips as do petals from a waning flower. Obama is a liar and he is good at it. If you were fooled by this relatively facile but small potatoes game-changer 'with the funny name', what chance will you stand against the Antichrist? Or the Father of Lies?

The only truth you can trust is the bible. And the bible's truths will be revealed to you if you ask Jesus to forgive your sins. He will send the Holy Spirit to indwell you and the bible will no longer be a pesky, dusty, moldy book but alive and vibrant with unending truths. You can use it to stand on as your foundation, you can place it in your heart as the servant of His work, you can place it over your head as your authority. The bible will reveal to you the nature and character of Christ, who is the true Father, in him is no lie, no darkness at all.
