Letter: Obama taking once-great country right into ground

Editor:

In the past, presidents have made statements which were widely publicized for various reasons. Some were humorous, some were foreboding, some were arrogant, some were encouraging, etc.

Here are a few examples: Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country; I am not a crook; I did not have sex with that woman; Read my lips, no new taxes; Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall; I have looked on many women with lust; The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. ...

However there is one statement which has a meaning that may be more significant than meets the eye: “The United States is not and never will be at war with Islam.”

Mr. President, are you saying that if Iran or any of its Islamic allies attacks Israel, that you will disregard our promise of protection and “throw Israel under the bus”?

It is no secret that Islam intends to dominate the world. Right now the Islamic population in the U.S. is rapidly growing, especially in Michigan. When they feel strong enough to revolt, will the U.S. do nothing?

You never said that the U.S. would not be at war with Islam during your presidency; you said never, period. How could you possibly know this, unless you are the man of sin which will appear in the last days? You have congratulated a pro basketball player for “coming out of the closet” for admitting he was gay. Your statement, “God bless Planned Parenthood” was an absolute abomination.

Do you really expect our Holy and Righteous Creator to bless an organization responsible for millions of murders a year?

You are running our once great country into the ground by destroying it from within and convincing weak-minded people that you are some sort of messiah. You have mesmerized those who are following you and you are leading them to destruction.
