Christianist Groups Come Out Against Obama's Hospital Directive

The nation's hate groups were noticeably silent about last week's hospital visitation directive from President Obama. Until now.

Focus On The Family
: "What complicated this memo -- and is a concern to us -- is the third point, [in which] the president directs Health and Human Services to investigate and to look for ways to perhaps give even more rights to same-sex couples when it comes to hospital visitation and medical decision-making. That was specifically for that demographic and it did not include other unmarried people. So in that way it was most certainly perpetuating a political agenda that we have seen from this president."

Liberty Counsel's Matt Barber: "Really he's given them something that they already have, that every American has through advanced directives, powers of attorney, and so forth. So the president is really just throwing a bone again to the yipping and yapping of various pressure groups that have been pushing him to adopt their agenda. Once again Obama just undermined the federal government's recognition of the Defense of Marriage Act, which only recognizes marriage between one man and one woman as legitimate marriage in this country."
