Obama’s Trampling on God’s Turf Now

By Patrick J. Buchanan Yes, Virginia, there is a religious war going on. It is for the soul of America. And traditional Christianity is besieged. In a January visit to the Vatican, American bishops were warned by Benedict XVI that “radical secularism” posed “grave threats” to their Catholic faith.

Saving Professor Bernanke
