Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was on Fox & Friends this week to discuss his efforts to protect religious liberty in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Gohmert is working for an amendment to the defense authorization bill that will protect the right of Christians and other faiths to express their religious beliefs without fear of punishment.

According to Gohmert, Obama is hostile to religious expression in the military. As reports:

Gohmert told the Fox News show there were indications early on in the Obama presidency of a bias against Christians.

“I think we got a clue back early on when this administration appointed three different ambassadors to the Vatican that were pro-abortion. This administration has gone out of its way to thump Christians,” the Texan declared.

He also raised questions about the president’s own religious beliefs, saying that while he calls himself a Christian his administration has carried out an assault on Judeo-Christian beliefs.

“He celebrates Ramadan at the White House. When was the last time he had Israeli leaders to celebrate Passover?” the congressman said.

Saying it’s “got to stop,” Gohmert also pointed to the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups, some of which he said believe in the biblical definition of marriage.
