When asked if Attorney General Eric Holder should resign for the numerous scandals in which he finds himself, MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson said, "What [Holder] should understand is that he is the chief lawgiver of the United States of America, so to speak – he's the Moses of our time, and at least for this administration."

To state the obvious: nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, Moses could demand quite a few things of President Obama, America's modern day Pharaoh.

Let Children Live: Stop Killing Babies Before They Are Born. 

Not only does President Obama support abortion, but he supports sex-selective abortion, and opposes any law that would allow a woman to terminate her pregnancy based on the race and sex of the child.

Let Children Live: Stop Killing Babies After They Are Born.

President Obama maintains that the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause does not protect babies who survive abortions because he does not consider these children to be people.

Let God's Law Stand. Marriage is Between One Man and One Woman.

Under the Obama Administration, Attorney General Holder stopped enforcing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in court, stating that DOMA was unconstitutional. It is one of the first times an attorney general of the United States has not enforced a law passed by Congress.

Let My People Go from Religious Persecution. Let Religious Organizations Practice Their Faith Without Punishment.

Under the Obama Administration religious organizations must comply with the HHS Mandate to pay for sterilization and abortion-causing drugs, or be fined and/or lose their nonprofit status.

Protect Your People From Threats Both Foreign and Domestic.

Secretary Holder is the first sitting cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress in U.S. history. He failed to comply with Congress in providing information about the "Fast and Furious" scandal in which a border patrolman was killed.

Under the Obama Administration, a 2012 Department of Homeland Security report defines terrorists as those who are:

  • "anti-abortion"
  • "impose strict religious tenets or laws on society (fundamentalists)"
  • "insert religion into the political sphere"
  • "those who seek to politicize religion."

Free Your People From Unconstitutional Government Surveillance.

Under the Obama Administration the federal government has confiscated the professional and private emails and wiretapped phone calls of citizens and journalists, and then attempted to cover up the fact that it did this. In addition, Attorney General Holder recused himself on the AP issue and denied knowledge of other government survelliance efforts.

News flash to Michael Eric Dyson, the Attorney General's job is to enforce laws created by Congress, not to create them. And Christians need leaders who to speak prophetically against modern-day pharaohs like Obama and Holder who arrogantly abuse their power.
