Obama’s contraceptive mandate has been the big issue the past few days. In usual form, he had assured that he would not enforce such a radical measure (as he is currently imposing on America) back in 2009 when he had signed his health care act.

Last night I posted about Kathy Dahlkemper (D-Penn) who was one of many members of Congress that were fired in 2010 during the midterm elections for siding with Barack Obama over issues like health care reform. She has recently come out and said she would never have voted for Obamacare had she known the final version of the bill would “force Catholic hospitals and Catholic colleges to pay for contraception”.

Along those same lines, author Eric Metaxas was on an MSNBC program today and he compared Obama’s contraceptive mandate to Germany’s holocaust policies (story from TheBlaze).

Metaxas’ book, which he had the opportunity to hand to Barack Obama personally, is named “Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy”. The book describes the life of Bonhoeffer, who was hanged after being exposed in an elaborate plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler.

From TheBlaze’s article, written by Billy Hallowell, “Leading up to the Holocaust, conditions became less favorable to faith groups, yet no one stood up to prevent the downward spiral that would inevitably end in genocidal chaos. He then connected these small pre-Holocaust signs to the situation we’re seeing with the contraceptive mandate here in America.”

“In the early 30s, little things were happening where the state was bullying the churches. No one spoke up. In the beginning, it always starts really, really small. We need to understand as Americans — if we do not see this as a bright line in the sand — if you’re not a Catholic, if you use contraception — doesn’t matter. Because eventually, this kind of government overreach will affect you.”

Eric Metaxas

I don’t think our president is concerned with those who “cling to their bibles” and he appears to be achieving even more division among Americans than he has already created. He is running on thin fumes of desperation and it is simply disappointing that so many Americans continue to stay on this guy's ship as it sinks deeper and deeper.

465.2 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day163.
