Evangelical megachurch pastor Rick Warren recently stated that President Barack Obama has "infringed" upon religious freedom in America.

The pastor of California-based Saddleback Church made these remarks to the Huffington Post, saying that Obama is "absolutely" unfriendly to religion and his administration's policies have "intentionally infringed upon religious liberties."

In an interview with Marc Lamont Hill of Huff Post Live on Wednesday, Warren took issue with the contraception mandate issued by the Department of Health and Human Services earlier this year.

"I believe … you should have a right to be able to practice your belief without the government forcing you to do something different," said Warren. "If they made a law where you got to sell contraception if you're Catholic, well then how about a law to Jewish Rabbis that says you have to sell pork in every deli?

If anyone should believe America is the only one doing this.. this is far from true. In the UK and Australia Christianity does not have the invitations it once did like many years ago.

Governments about the World are pushing for a more Secular Humanistic to what they call the Fair Equality Rights acts.

One reason why America has gotten more attention than other nations is because of the kind of constitution we have had. Those in the Government especially Christians have tried to uphold things back from the Founding Fathers. But finding out no matter what it is eroding away but you can look about the World and see Christians in Government have a very weak voice this day. Losing rights Freedom of speech and being invited openly. Christians don’t fit in the so called Equal Rights Acts because we uphold laws that do not agree to Equality Rights. Equality rights focuses on human issues and rights where we as Christian focus more on the Law of God.

We are seeing what is being called about the world globally an Antichristian Movement. Meaning that Society, Government and Laws rejecting, mocking, denying and persecuting Christians for what they believe in. In the times like this Israel and Jewish are being hated also by certain groups especially those of Islamic beliefs. Some Islamic movements have united with the Black Panthers and some other black organizations against the Jews and against those of Caucasian in skin and appearance. Where in likewise there are some white racist who hates Jews and people of all other races.

Notice in all of these groups Jews are hated for one. God’s first chosen people. Christians are also rejected from these groups because true Christian does not discriminate against any race of any kind but to acknowledge all races were created by God and given all Biblical Laws and rights. Be aware now that Jews and Christians will be among the most hated people on the Earth in these days. This is a prophecy to be fulfilled. You shall be hate by all nations things will continue like this till the 2nd return of Jesus and in the midst of this trouble shall there go forth a man whom is called Antichrist spoken in Daniel and of Matthew 24 Thessalonians and Revelations. This man is the most evil of all beings that all should resist and not follow or take his mark. His mark will be placed on the right hand or the forehead. That number is six six six. Revelations 13:18. For no reason God says to take this Mark of the Beast who is called they antichrist, the Man of Lawlessness. The Bible gives us some description that you should read about in the Bible to be aware who to look for. The world may not understand and may be deceived by Him. But you should not misunderstand to those who have called out to the Lord and reading this Holy Book of God.

There are no specific years or date. But we see signs all about written in the Bible that we are heading in that direction. Read Matthew 24 to the signs of the end times. Also read 2 Timothy chapter 3 in how people will be in these days.

Praying~!

A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: but the fool rageth, and is confident. Proverbs 14:16-17

Have Mercy LORD And Restore Israel To Your Worship
And Thank You For Answered Prayer And Save America Too
For We Are A Puffed Up And Proud Talking Peoples
And This Nation Will Not Morn Before Your Word
So LORD, Pop Our Little Bubble
And Draw Us To You
And Bless Us

Bless Us
In Jesus' Name
Amen

Yes; he seems very liberal and universalist to me so I pay little attention to him. But he's correct in his statements, although I believe the President doesn't believe he is infringing upon anyone.

Rick Warren is also the man that told a lot of churches to remove their crosses because it could offend people, I have seem some of these mega churches that have followed his advice. They now look like the inside of casinos or night clubs. He has also been seen at Muslims rallies. One pastor out there that is the pastor of a mega church, over 35,000 is so proud of the Starbucks he has in his church but he has no cross. No thanks on Rick Warren.
