The White House has a double standard on religious freedom

When it comes to the issue of religious freedom, the Obama administration is painting two different pictures – that according to the director of a religious liberty center in Washington, DC.

On Sunday, which was International Religious Freedom Day, Secretary of State John Kerry issued a statement in which he said freedom of religion – while not an American invention – is a “core American value.”

“We call on the international community – governments, civil society, and citizens alike – to speak out against religious persecution, and to stand unequivocally for religious freedom,” read a portion of that statement, which also identified freedom of religion as a “priority” for President Obama and “an integral part” of his administration’s global diplomatic engagement.

And earlier this year (May 20), referring to religious freedom, Kerry said: “It’s a universal value – and it’s enshrined in our Constitution and ingrained in every human heart.”

But over the past few weeks, military intelligence briefings at Camp Shelby, Mississippi, and Fort Hood, Texas, have identified faith-based groups such as the American Family Association, Family Research Council, and others as “domestic hate groups.”
( So where does Obama admin. REALLY stand on religious freedom?)
