Easter with the Obamas.
It was certainly rich hearing Obama gain attention this weekend. We had his Saturday’s remarks, and of course he had to be sure he was seen on Easter. It sounds like Obama has found his religious home again. First the Pastor’s remark, and then let’s reflect on Obama and his own dissing of Christianity.
President Obama and his family this morning went to Easter Sunday services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. Here are notes on the Easter service from the pool reporter, which included this part, “It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back … for blacks to be back in the back of the bus … for women to be back in the kitchen … for immigrants to be back on their side of the border”
Then we have Obama’s Saturday remarks regarding Easter that makes one cringe:
….Of course, those values are at the heart not just of the Christian faith; but of all faiths. From Judaism to Islam; Hinduism to Sikhism; there echoes a powerful call to serve our brothers and sisters. To keep in our hearts a deep and abiding compassion for all. And to treat others as we wish to be treated ourselves.
That’s the common humanity that binds us together. And as Americans, we’re united by something else, too: faith in the ideals that lie at the heart of our founding*; and the belief that, as part of something bigger than ourselves, we have a shared responsibility to look out for our fellow citizens.
Here is Obama’s bizarre view on his personal salvation. Apparently only if we agree to becoming a Marxist nation, can the man find salvation.
In case there are any questions left, Obama mocks the Christianity and the second amendment.
