Obama to Catholics: Caring for "Least of These" is "Religious Obligation" for Me, But NOT for Thee

Obama is fond of citing his "religious beliefs", when it suits him, as justification for his liberal policies.

Hmmmm. So, it's "religious" when Obama uses the governement to provide for the "least of these", but NOT "religious" when the Church does it? I'd like to say a special thanks to my friend Dale Price for pointing me to this outstanding column by Charles Krauthammer that exposes Obama's hypocrisy in this regard:
To flatter his faith-breakfast guests and justify his tax policies, Obama declares good works to be the essence of religiosity. Yet he turns around and, through Sebelius, tells the faithful who engage in good works that what they’re doing is not religion at all. You want to do religion? Get thee to a nunnery. You want shelter from the power of the state? Get out of your soup kitchen and back to your pews. Outside, Leviathan rules.
Apparently, Obama's version of Matthew 25 is broad enough to cover his tax and spending (and "women's health") priorities, but not broad enough to cover the activities that Jesus actually commanded His Church to engage in.
