What Bishop Jenky Truly Said About Obama

The enemies of the Church are in full court press regarding the sermon given by Bishop Jenky where he states that President Obama's current radical, secularist agenda seems to be taking him on a path previously taken by four previous rulers. They have twisted Bishop Jenky's statement around and report it as though he equates President Obama with Hitler or Stalin. This lack of clarity and obfuscation of facts is one of the chief reasons there is no honest discourse in the country today.

Here is what Bishop Jenky actually stated. Note that he shows the example of four different enemies of the Church in the past 150 years, not only Hitler or Stalin.

"Remember that in past history other governments have tried to force Christians to huddle and hide only within the confines of their churches like the first disciples locked up in the Upper Room.
In the late 19th century, Bismarck waged his “Kulturkampf,” a Culture War, against the Roman Catholic Church, closing down every Catholic school and hospital, convent and monastery in Imperial Germany.
Clemenceau, nicknamed “the priest eater,” tried the same thing in France in the first decade of the 20th Century.
Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care.
In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, Barack Obama – with his radical, pro abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path."
