Posted on 12/24/2009 7:56:59 AM PST by opentalk
The Senate vote on final passage of health reform almost scuttled their plans, but it looks like the First Family will still make it to Hawaii for Christmas. They've had a whirlwind holiday season so far, starting with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, through hosting more than 50,000 people for 27 parties and open houses, and ending with a visit by the First Lady, Malia and Sasha, and the family's dog Bo, to deliver cookies to the Children's National Medical Center. The Obamas have also started their own holiday traditions in their new home, adding a Christmas wishing tree to the decorations festooning the White House.
But there's one common Christmas practice not on the First Family's schedule: a visit to Christmas Eve church services.
..The Obamas have attended Sunday services in Washington three times this year

Maybe that’s why they didn’t know what Jeremiah Wright said.
They should really leave the narcissist-in-chief alone on this topic. Only the most gullible really believes he is a Christian, so it’s pointless to continually pretend he is and wonder why his behavior never matches Christianity.
Godless leading the Godless.
Gee...now there’s a surprise. If these “Christians” were any kind of Christians, they would find a time and place to worship. They are NOT Christians...AND they are laughing about it in our faces because the morons voting for them fell for it hook line and sinker!
You don’t celebrate Christmas if you are Muslim
Not to mention decorations honoring Chinese despots.
They attended church 3 times? Where and in what capacity? And why did Time feel the need to mention it?
I’m glad the Jerk-in-chief is getting too lazy to fake it and go to services, yet another thing he won’t be able to pretend in 2012 like he did in 2008. What a freaking mis-representing liar he was in 2008.
Of COURSE he doesn’t! If went into an honest-to-goodness, Bible-believing church, he’d burst into flame!
This is about right.
I heard Bozo the Presidential clown had to be reminded to say something about the troops at Christmas (In his haste to get out of DC, so he could go vacation in Hawaii) after he wee-wee’d about health care.
What a crock. President Bush didn't seem to have that problem. Nor any other past president that I can recall.
If JW was preaching his gospel of hate in Hawaii on Christmas day, the Obamas would be in the front row. Who knows, maybe he's coming to give them a private service at their compound.
If Bush tried this with 10%+ unemployment they would be calling for his impeachment.
True, if you're a Muslim you can pretend to celebrate Christmas to fool the infidels, but one thing Muslim heads of state can't do is take their wives on state visits to Muslim countries. How many times has the Teleprompter in Chief visited a Muslim country and taken the First Lady with him? Zero, and whether he's in office 4 years or 8 years or some other period of time, it'll never happen.
They did have a big shindig for Ramadan though.
Muslims don’t observe Christmas.
“The Obamas have also started their own holiday traditions in their new home, adding a Christmas wishing tree to the decorations festooning the White House.”
Hmm......................OK, made my wish.
In order to believe Zero is a muslim, you have to say he believes there is a power greater than himself. I think it is more likely Zero is an atheist.
Sums it up

Have they selected a DC area Mosque yet?
It sounds as if grandma was a Unitarian if she was anything. They believe everyone goes to heaven..I am sure that is a comfort to the Obamas godless home.
The Obamas are not believers in anything but the human will. They will celebrate that with the wishing tree
Ronald Reagan did not attend church outside of the WH after the assassination attempt. BUT, he and Nancy invited pastors to conduct private services INSIDE the WH. Reagan was criticized for that, but he said that he did not want to disrupt the church experience for other parishioners attending.
OTOH, George W. Bush attended church frequently and quietly -- even slipping into daily services at a church near the WH.
Naw... too obvious.
He has the Secret Service pick us his Immam and bring him to the Whitehouse through the back door.
The fact that congress has not been allowed to break for Christmas, shows the lack of respect for Christianity.
What does a “Wishing Tree” have to do with Christmas — especially for a family who claims that they do not give their children (or each other) presents on Christmas.
I'll bet there are prayer rugs on Air Force One.
He is not now nor has he ever been a Christian!!!
A person would have to be intellectually deaf, dumb, and blind to conclude that Obama would ever sincerely darken the door of a church (except maybe the Church of Satan)!
He has told the world in every way possible, short of coming right out with it, that he is a muslim.
“However, just like every day, they will pray five times”.....
/s (I think)
He didn’t go to his white racist granny’s funeral either, I believe. (I ‘d like to see the death certificate—wonder if the old gal cooled five years ago)
I don't know about that. He bows to as many foreign leaders as he can. And I'm sure he bows to Mecca and Allah.
But it doesn’t stop him or Alice the Goon from traipsing about DC for burgers or arugula......
a Christmas wishing tree
WTH is a Christmas “wishing” tree??
That’s understandable, given the schedule presidents must keep.
But I’ve never heard one give that kind of lame excuse for not attending.
..but just heard from a friend that a stewardess on his campaign plane says he DOES have a prayer rug, and DOES pray 5 times a day.
See post # 40
It doesn't make any difference where you worship, bonehead. The Lord doesn't care. Set a room aside in the White House and invite rotating pastors in to preach the Word. There'd be no shortage of acceptances.
Chaplains say the prayers every morning in the House and Senate...... and privately counsel Members in their offices whenever needed.
On our many freeper fund-raising cruises, Sunday mornings saw small, public salons regularly set aside for services, one for Protestants, one for Catholics, etc. One ship has Lutheran services in the movie theater.
The clergy on ships are volunteers who, along with their families perhaps, are cruising themselves. They get a discounted fare for their churchly volunteerism. The services are lovely.....just salons with chairs, an altar, and a piano brought in for the hymn-singing. The worshipers can view the gently-rolling Caribbean through the picture windows.
After all, in past and present ages, emperors and kings had their own private, elaborate, art-filled chapels in their palaces. Why not Obama in the White House seeing he's his own kind of royalty?
Actually, let's be real....The One believes in no one but Karl Marx, and he, Obama, is his Prophet.

What is a “Christmas wishing tree”? Anyone?
awww...cut Barry some slack, muslims don’t do Christmas.
I’m taking bets that the asshole hasn’t been to a Christian church since he was elected. Any takers?
Agnostics and atheists don’t celebrate Christmas.
I am not sure how Black Liberation Theology and Christmas go together.
I just am so saddened how so many Americans don't see these people for who they really are.
With that being said... Merry Christmas!
They dont worry about such things when they have their expensive date night routinely.
