Skip to comments.Have the Obamas found a church?

"Obama also worshipped at the church on Inauguration Day and Easter. St. John's has been a popular choice among presidents, including George W. Bush, because it is close to the White House and familiar to the Secret Service.
Washington churches have competed for Obama's attention since his election. He quit his last church, Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, during the presidential campaign last year after the circulation of controversial sermons by its former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright."
Poster's(DollyCali) comments: The first family has gone on vacation more than they have attended church since entering the White House. The article suggests..... "Have the Obama's found a new church home?"
Ha.. they have attended there 3 times since entering the White house... the most recent LAST Sunday and part of the interest was that the appearance of the three females in the family is again amusing (I KNOW there are better words..trying to be civil on THIS Lord's Day)
as I am not sure if Getty Images are permitted, I am just posting a link in the PING of the first family.

Committed Christians shake their heads in wonder how the Media sees this as some sort of spiritual event or pilgrimage.
The Obamas... they worship themselves.
Michelle Fashion Police Alert Ping!
FReepmail GOP_Lady if you want on or off this ping list.
Stuffingenvelopes "corrected" for Dear Leader.
The World thinks: Are Americans stupid and blind?
HEY JAY! You got that right!
very VERY scary
LOL well I can’t see them going. His ego would not fit in the front door.
"Obama doesn't go to church...churchgoers go to Obama!"
I wish he’d go to the church down the street from us. They’re having a series called: “PRICELESS: The Hidden Cost of the New Global Economy.”
The Obama’s what? Their dog?
Can I get a witness?
Amen! Preach it!
Sure they have! It is the church who kneels at the feet of Government largess and Barrat Huseiene is the “God”!
They will eventually have to attend the Church of the Painful Truth, if the Dems keep spending.
LOL! That’s pretty good!
I know things have changed over the years but I still can’t get used to people attending church in “play clothes”...you know, the clothes we used to change into AFTER church.
Why would she take her children to church dressed like that? The older girl has onblack/white checkered shoes ,royal blue leggins,purple skirt,yellow shirt,orange also..Why allow a child to dress that way?
I agree. Some FReepers have said this is the *style* of clothes being shown for kids their ages.
Our granddaughter is eight and her parents don’t dress her like that.
I guess MO allows them to dress so they look like *mini-me*??
They don’t go to church. They go to Commie training.
I AM THE GREATEST
They've turned the white hut into a mosque.
Y'gudda' be kid'n me.
That picture SO encapsulates the essence of Zero.
Yes, they have.
obama is the misiah,Micheile [sp?] is the high priestess, the Democrat Party is his disciples and the fools,the traitors to America,and the parasites that live off the stolen by the government blood of Americans are the congration. The alphabet news networks are his chior.
Barack Obama’s pastor is evangelical nephew of Johnny Cash
President Barack Obama’s new pastor is an evangelical Iraq veteran who has denounced Islam as a faith that “from its very birth has used the edge of the sword as a means to convert or conquer”.
My bet is there will be no Christmas at the White House only Kwanzaa and Muslim holidays.
True, true. Neither Marxists nor Muslims care much for churches, albeit for different reasons. This President seems to bear the influences of both groups, to judge by his appointees, associates, and advisors.
What the girls are wearing wouldn’t be my taste either, but it could be much worse. They could be in skin-tight or skimpy outfits, but they’re not. I don’t see any rude or political symbols or slogans plastered on their anatomy, nor are they sporting tattoos or black fingernail polish. I’ll take circus brights over some of the stuff I see on young people today any day of the week - even Sunday.
Is she really a unicorn in disguise?
I’m sure Rev. Manning would love to have the opportunity to “minister” to the Obamas....
I actually think the girls look sweet and innocent. Have you seen teen-aged girls up close these days? The Obama girls look fine to me.
Good question, it looks like cardboard! So how many cardigans do you think Aunt Esther owns now? I love how the fashion editors are making fools of themselves continuing to claim she is such a trend setter when she wears the same look all the time.... a skirt that makes her hips look larger and a small cardigan... it’s like her uniform
you left out the hideous belt, but, alas, that need a post of it’s very own to do the subject justice.
you KNOW why she can’t wear slim fitting skirts or dresses don’t ya? -it hinders her long, manly stride.
yeah the ever present belt.....sigh.
The really sad thing is that in the few photos of her wearing a suit, she really looks good. A beautifully tailored suit in a strong color, looks slimming and professional on her and doesn’t look like she’s trying to be one of the Hollywood crowd. It makes her look self assured and distinguished. Aren’t we lucky she doesn’t have enough sense to realize that? lol
I agree....the kids look like... kids ...and that’s the way it should be. They shouldn’t have to dress for the camera.
I have to admit to seeing her look good in a handful of pictures, so she CAN do it.
It makes life so much more fun for us when she dresses like she does.....agree about the girls - they are cute and look like happy kids - that is most important. I guess Biden would describe them as “clean and articulate” -
Didn't we read they were juicing the WH garden with toxic waste?
Maybe it's caused a mutation.......
You nailed it. Post of the day!
“Obama also worshipped at the church on Inauguration Day and Easter. St. John’s has been a popular choice among presidents . . . “
No, he didn’t Whatever they did at “St. John’s”, it was NOT worship of the true and living God.
I tend to agree with you. We surely don’t know what is in their hearts, but the actions dont indicate a lot of God centering...
It if funny that normally the only decently dressed person in the foursome is The One.. As much as I agree that kids should be kids, these aren’t just ordinary kids and St. Johns is NOT a trendy, “wear your cutesy stuff” church. The children I observed there were NOT dressed in this manner. This is a mixed ethnic/race congregation and all you people I noted had things that I would say had a bit more dignity
last sentence(there are more but this is the most conspicuous)
This is a mixed ethnic/race congregation and all
Has Michelle gotten older looking since living at the WH?
Just asking. :)
some days she photographs young & attractive and other times terribly.. I think we here see mostly the bad ones..
