Critics Challenge Obama on Religious Freedom Day

Ad Feedback

President Obama has declared today Religious Freedom Day but critics are charging his proclamation as "hypocritical."

"As we observe Religious Freedom Day, let us remember the legacy of faith and independence we have inherited, and let us honor it by forever upholding our right to exercise our beliefs free from prejudice or persecution," President Obama said in his proclamation.

However, Marjorie Dannenfelser, with the Susan B. Anthony List, said the president's proclamation is "hypocritical."

She cited the administration's mandate that employers provide insurance covering abortion-inducing drugs and sterilization, even if they have religious or moral objections.

"Our religious liberty and rights of conscience have been threatened like never before under President Obama," she said. "(He) must first rescind his HHS mandate before making any proclamations on the subject - This is blatant hypocrisy."
