Repudiation: Christian Anti-Defamation Commission

It can be argued that the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is none of the above.  Their first installment in a series of ten proofs that President Barack Obama is not a Christian is filled with lies that neither promote Christianity nor defend it from anything real.  Watch and see.

Lies I caught:
1.  Life is defined by the Bible to begin at conception.
Genesis 2:7 is the first time that the Bible discusses the soul.  The soul is associated with the first breath, not the moment of fertilization.
2.  Death Panels in ObamaCare.
Despite the claims in this video, there are no Death Panels in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (which detractors call ObamaCare).  President Obama said that the death panel claim is a lie.  It is a lie according to PolitifactThe denial of neurosurgery to patients over 70 is a lie according to Snopes.  The caller to the Mark Levin show was telling a lie when he claimed to be a neurosurgeon.
3.  Abortion funding in ObamaCare.
Not true.  President Obama signed Executive Order 13535 that applies the Hyde Amendment to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  In short, ObamaCare does not include abortion funding.
4.  Reproductive care means abortion.
No.  The World Health Organization says reproductive care should be
access to safe, effective, affordable and acceptable methods of fertility regulation of their choice, and the right of access to appropriate health care services that will enable women to go safely through pregnancy and childbirth and provide couples with the best chance of having a healthy infant.
The only hint regarding abortion is "fertility regulation of their choice", which is best handled through contraception not abortion.
5.  ObamaCare is anti-life.
Exactly the opposite.  But this 501(c)3 that masquerades as a non-political charity is loading in every deception that they have available to distort both the intent and reality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.  While the Act could have been improved, Republicans in Congress made that impossible.  Many of the ideas that were originated by Republicans, including presidential contenders Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich, are now disavowed as socialist plots to overthrow America and proof that President Obama is a secret Muslim.

Unlike abortion, telling lies is forbidden in the Ten Commandments.  Thus, one could say that the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is not Christian or at least not adhering to Christian tenets.  Rather than defend Christianity, the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission is slandering the President of the United States.  Thus, one could say that they are not anti-defamation.  The word commission is a nebulous enough term that we can grant that much.  Still, one might wonder from whence came this commission.  Their history page states who founded them, not who commissioned them.

Thanks to Joe My God for the heads up.
