The religious right is claiming that President Obama is trying to create a dictatorship and that the Left is trying to create a theocracy in the United States.
Via Right Wing Watch, the Christian Broadcasting Network's Pat Robertson claimed today that the president is actually trying to become a dictator, claiming:
He doesn't care about the real management of the United States government. All he wants to do is to get re-elected and to impose a so-called progressive agenda upon America. He wants to take control of every aspect of this nation by the federal government and if you want dictatorship, then that's the way you're going to get it because he's giving it to you.
In the context of contraceptives being provided in the health care mandate, Tony Perkins, president of the far-right Family Research Council, proclaimed on the American Family Association's radio program, "Today's Issues" with Rep. Chris Smith and Tim Wildmon, that the Left is trying to create a theocracy:
We often hear these charges that the Right's trying to create a theocracy. It's actually the left that uses the scripture as a means of delivering these services through the state. They're trying to bring the church and state together.
