Summary
Americans hail the president as their savior. The government grabs ever more power, forcing religion out of public life. And now unelected bureaucrats are telling Christians they have to violate their consciences and betray their faith. Anyone who cares about religious liberty has cause for alarm. These trends did not start with Obama. In fact, what the Obama administration is doing is only the culmination of a long campaign to replace Christianity with a new religion. If we don't find a way to reverse these trends, we're headed straight for the goal that secular liberalism has been aiming at for centuries: Thou shalt worship the state
