On November 20, President Barack Obama bestowed America’s highest civilian award to 16 people, including Bill Clinton and Gloria Steinem. The Presidential Medal of Freedom, founded by John F. Kennedy, recognizes individuals who have made
“an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, world peace, cultural or other significant public or private endeavors.”
Bill Clinton was honored for his “public service in the White House.” That would include, of course, turning the White House into a near brothel and morally degrading the office of the presidency in unparalleled ways.
As for the feminist Gloria Steinem, Obama commented that she is a “game-changer” who has helped women “afford the respect and opportunities that they deserve.” What he failed to say is that Steinem is an avowed enemy of biblical morality. She has said that “you become a semi-non-person when you get married” and “a liberated woman is one who has sex before marriage and a job after” (“Obama Gives Radical Feminist Medal of Freedom,” Breitbart.com, Nov. 20, 2013). Of her own abortion, Steinem said, “I knew it was the first time I had taken responsibility for my own life.”
Two more of Obama’s Medal of Freedom recipients are homosexual socialist Bayard Rustin and lesbian astronaut Sally Ride (“Obama Honors Gay Socialist and Lesbian Astronaut,” CNSNews.com, Nov. 21, 2013).
Also honored by Obama with the Medal of Freedom was Oprah Winfrey, who has been instrumental in popularizing the mythical god of the New Age. In the book Live Your Best Life, Oprah described her philosophy that everything is one, man is divine, and man can create his own reality. Her gospel is that man is not a sinner, God is not a judge, all is well with the universe, and I just need to surrender to theflow. In a nutshell, Oprah’s gospel is ME. She says, “God wants you to love yourself. It starts with you.” She says that gurus are here “not to teach us about their divinity but to teach us about our own” (“Why We Love Gurus,” Newsweek, Oct. 20, 1997).
These are the people who our President believes are the “cream of the crop”, the “leaders of society” and “guides for the public good”.
