I guess, this being Obama’s second term and all, he can really just admit to all his sleazy ideas about civilized life—where a baby is a “punishment” for sex and the state is supposed to force men and women to be identical. Thus, last week the President awarded the Medal of Freedom to Gloria Steinem.
Longtime pro-abortion activist Gloria Steinem today received the highest honor the Untied States can bestow upon a citizen who is not a member of the U.S. military. Obama today awarded sixteen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and those recipients included abortion activist Gloria Steinem.
The Presidential Medal of Freedom is “presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” and Obama apparently believes dedicating one’s life to promoting abortion is a part of that list.
In announcing the award, Obama said “The Presidential Medal of Freedom goes to men and women who have dedicated their own lives to enriching ours. This year’s honorees have been blessed with extraordinary talent, but what sets them apart is their gift for sharing that talent with the world. It will be my honor to present them with a token of our nation’s gratitude.”
Yes, she enriched the world with millions of baby carcasses every year.
But her talent seems to have been running her mouth a lot and raising money for other evil people to get into office and implement those ideas. In other words, her talent is pretty much the fundraising for which Obama was, undoubtedly, rewarding her. Same goes for Oprah Winfrey and many other “winners” of the medal.
I supposed I should warm our hearts by reminding all of us that someday a better president might give the award to better people.
But I can’t do that.
Obama reminded viewers that John F. Kennedy established the Medal of Freedom. It was a self-created ploy to manipulate public opinion by showing who is worthy of being an example to the rest of us.
Who cares what the President thinks?
I don’t care what party his is from. It shouldn’t matter. The only gift a President has is the ability to win a national popularity contest. He’s not a saint. He’s not a god. I know that God appoints civil magistrate to punish evil and praise the good (see Romans 13), but there’s no evidence that God anointed civil magistrates to enact quasi-religious ceremonies that exalt people in society. Steinem has already received plenty of awards from a corrupt and disgusting society without having to add the insult of someone pretending that she represents the best in the nation. And more importantly, a winner of a national popularity contest should stop pretending that he has special authority to officially recognize the best in the nation.
If we get a better president after Obama, I hope he will prove it by mothballing the Medal of Freedom.
