Obama's Church-Free Christmas
The best news from this year’s Obama Hawaiian vacation is that the Obama family did not bother to go to church on Christmas Day.
The fact that Barack ignored church service on the day the world celebrates the Birthday of Jesus should come as good news to Christians because it’s a sure sign that whatever Obama is rooted in, it is not the Almighty.
According to yesterday’s New York Times headline: ‘As the Obamas Celebrate Christmas, Rituals of Faith Become Less Visible’.
Worship of the Almighty is written off as “rituals of faith” by the NYT.
Leave it to the NYT to come up with a way to cover for the Obamas thumbing their nose at the Creator.
The only “birthday news” coming out of Hawaii is the White House party being planned for Michelle Obama’s January 17 birthday when she turns a self-described “fabulous 50”.
“HONOLULU-President Obama celebrated a low-key Christmas in Hawaii this year. He sang carols, opened presents with his family, and visited a nearby military base to wish the troops “Mele Kalikimaka”—the Hawaiian phrase meaning “Merry Christmas”. (New York Times, Dec. 28, 2013). “But the one thing the president and his family did not do—something they have rarely done since he entered the White House—was attend Christmas service.”
And the NYT is feeding its readers a baloney sandwich by claiming that “Obama’s habits appear to be in step with a changing America, with fewer people these days reporting that they attend church on Christmas Day or Christmas Eve. According to a Pew Research Center study released this month, 54 percent of adults said they planned to attend Christmas services, while 69 percent said they traditionally did so as children.”
So, the Obamas read the Pew Research Center study and decided no Christmas Eve or Christmas Day church service for them? No, they likely slept through the pealing church bells, dawdled over brekkie, before singing Christmas carols, opening presents and visiting a nearby military base.
But wait a minute: Barack’s opening of presents with his family this year is a clear departure from Christmas 2008 when Politico reported that “Obama leaves the gifting to Santa”.
A 2008, seven-page cover story in People Magazine stated that Barack and Michelle do not give Christmas or birthday presents to their two young daughters “because they want to teach some limits”.
Rule No. 6 in “Obama House Rules” listed by the magazine: “No birthday or Christmas presents from Mom and Dad, who spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and, as Barack puts it, “want to teach some limits”.
But that was Christmas past and this is Christmas present.
On Day 9 into the 17-day Hawaiian trip, the usual pictures of Obama slurping shaved ice, and swinging his trademark golf clubs are scarce as proverbial hens teeth.
Perhaps the seriously-down-in-popularity-polls-not-so-long-ago- ‘Messiah’ is in hiding, evidenced by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) “paranoid” email sent out yesterday urging supporters to vote for Democrats so that Republicans can’t impeach President Obama.
“The email, subject line “Impeachment,” was sent to Obama for America supporters imploring them to contribute to the DNC’s 2014 efforts. “What do these people all have in common?” the email asked, featuring quotes from Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma, Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota, Rep. Kerry Bentivolio of Michigan, and Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas discussing the possibility of impeaching Obama for one of his numerous instances of presidential misconduct.” (The Daily Caller, Dec. 28, 2013).
“The DNC email discussed the “I-Word” and said that “Republicans are actually excited about the idea.”
“Show these Republicans that they are way, way off-base, and give President Obama a Congress that has his back,” according to the DNC email, noting that Democrats need to win 17 GOP House seats to reclaim a majority.”
Obama already has a Congress that covers his back and talk of impeachment needs decisive action.
Meanwhile, the millions fighting off Obama’s evil plans to Fundamentally Transform America have the best weapon: a Jesus-taught prayer whose words ask the Almighty to “deliver us from evil”.
