Obama speaking at Baltimore mosque Feb2016Political observers are shaking their heads after President Barack Obama visited a mosque Wednesday to demand tolerance for Muslims.

If the President is concerned about religious freedom, says Gary Bauer of American Values, he should pay a visit to the U.S. Department of Justice.

"Who has brought the full weight of the Obama administration and the federal government down on the heads of the Little Sisters of the Poor," says Bauer, "trying to force them to be complicit in abortion."

Bauer, Gary (American Values)Obama visited the Islamic Society of Baltimore, where he singled out Republicans for tying Muslims to terrorism and claimed Muslims are being targeted for their faith.

"We can't be bystanders to bigotry," said Obama, who proclaimed that religious freedom must be upheld.

"True religious freedom is religious freedom that is not just politically correct," says Brad Dacus of the Pacific Justice Institute. "It's religious freedom that respects the rights of all Americans, especially those who appreciate and defend the Constitution of the United States."

Dacus says he's waiting for President Obama to defend Christian bakers and florists who have been fined, and shut down their businesses, due to their sincere religious beliefs.

Dacus, Brad (PJI)The mosque in Baltimore has close ties to the controversial Muslim Brotherhood, says author David Rubin.

"Their goal is to create a Muslim civilization from what was a Judeo-Christian civilization. That is the goal," Rubin tells OneNewsNow.

Days before Obama's visit, Fox News noted that a former imam who led the mosque has ties to terrorism and other controversial organizations, including the Brotherhood.

While Obama is visiting an American mosque for the first time in his eights years in office, Fox News noted that President George W. Bush visited a Washington, D.C. mosque just days after the September 2001 terrorist attacks.

Pastor Jeffress with Donald TrumpA high-profile Southern Baptist pastor says evangelicals "by the droves" are flocking to support billionaire Donald Trump because polls indicate there's not much support nationally for a born-again Christian to be elected – and electability, says the pastor, should now take center stage.
