Basically, the entire article states that Obama's not a Christian. Yeah, this again. He's a secret Muslim set out to destroy us, see, and his belief in the evil and barbaric Koran will somehow cause this country to burst into flames because he doesn't believe in the Jesus guy. Or something.
Oh hell, here... have some tasty tidbits.
The President covered up a white cross and a symbol for the name of Jesus at a Georgetown University speech.Yeah, there's this little troubling thing... about the separation of Church and State... and uh... the office of the Presidency shouldn't be showing ANY kind of religious affiliation. When giving a speech as the President of the United States, a SECULAR COUNTRY, he's absolutely right to cover that cross up.
President Obama did not publicly celebrate the National Day of Prayer at the White House yet celebrated Gay and Lesbian Pride Month as well as Islamic religious observations at the White House.I find it refreshing that Obama stopped the politicization of Christianity that had become so common in the Bush White House, personally. And I'm not sure what the pride month has to do with anything. Is it anti-Christian to celebrate diversity or acknowledge that people can have love even with others of their own sex, or is that one of those things which doesn't fall under the "Judge not lest ye be judged" thing?
In the midst of the worst economic downturn in decades, Team Obama spent $150, 000,000 on the Presidential Inauguration ignoring the needs of the poor and struggling across the country.Uhhh... flat-out lies. Not even an inaccuracy. According to Fact Check's research, "it appears likely that his inauguration will not cost significantly more than Bush’s second inauguration, and could conceivably cost less after adjusting for inflation." Oh, and also? Inaugurations are paid for by private donations to a fund specifically setup for that. Same way it's always been done.
"It is important to note that it was President Obama who made his regular church attendance and the importance of a local church community a major part of his campaign. He stated in the national press that he, 'regularly attends church while on the campaign trail.'Uhhh... he DID attend regularly, until his church was excoriated in the media from a hypersensitive (and very white) audience who don't understand how black churches tend to work, with very fiery preachers throwing a lot of very extreme hyperbole around to make points. Maybe he learned a lesson about keeping his religious views.... private?
Finally, the White House has said they have not found a church home for President Obama and his family in Washington, D.C. because they do not want to be a disruptive factor for the local church. This is a completely disingenuous and misleading argument. The overwhelming majority of churches in the Washington would love to have the President and his family attend their church and would welcome them with open arms.EXCEPT... he has stated that he prefers to worship privately. In his home. Without media spectacles and distractions.
It's this sort of stuff that makes me shake my head. How dare he celebrate gay pride month?? How DARE he allow any sort of Islamic observance into a White House that has for many years done... exactly that?
Personally, I'd be happy if the presidency treated religion as something COMPLETELY taboo for public office. Believe what you want in the privacy of your home, or your church - but when you work for a country as the employee of Hindus, Jews, Atheists, Christians, Muslims, B'hai, and every other faith in the country, you need to set your own fantasies aside. Any endorsement of religion by the presidency - even something as small as having a cross on a podium where you're lecturing - is a violation, in my opinion. I find it absolutely refreshing to see a president who doesn't sound like he works for the Taliban, personally.
