President Obama publicly attended church Sunday morning for the first time in nearly six months, and shortly after a major survey showed that only a third of Americans can correctly identify Obama's faith as Christian.
The first family attended the 9 a.m. service at St. John's Church Lafayette Square, an Episcopal congregation about a block from the White House.
The Obamas - the president, first lady Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha - made the trip on foot.
The family sat a few rows from the altar, among roughly 40 worshippers. Each family member received communion, led by the president.
St. John's rector, the Rev. Luis Leon, preached on the weekly gospel reading, Luke 16:1-13, which ends, "You cannot serve God and wealth," in the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.

Anything for a vote.
Must be an election in a couple of weeks.
Another “historic” Obama Moment. These are good for the ‘RATS with the elections just around the corner. They sure don’t want to be out there flaunting their votes for ObamaCare.
He went to listen to a Muslim Palestinian, thats why.
From the Church Bulletin:
The ForumThe forum resumes September 19 at 10:00 a.m. Speaking on Prospects for the Two- State Solution in the Mideast will be Ziad Asali, M.D., Founder and President, American Task Force on Palestine.
Obama must have been confused by the absence of the traditional God Damning of America.
What did you expect? After all, he is a devout Christian, isn’t he?
Elections are coming up. Bill Clinton was always good at these type of cynical church-going publicity stunts.
I think the only reason Baraq went to Jerry Wright’s Palace of Hate was for networking and street cred. He didn’t GAF about what was preached from the pulpit.
He needed a refill on racism.
To counter poll results that people think he’s a Muslim.
Won’t work. He looks and acts like Malcom X more everyday.
Too rainy for golf today?
He did not forget to take his towel off.
He is Cricketstian afteralllll.
What a bad joke!!! Will people actually BUY his fake Christianity??? Yes.....
