Have the Obamas found a church?
Baltimore Sun ^ | 18 October 2009 | DollyCali

Posted on 10/18/2009 3:54:28 AM PDT by DollyCali

"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.

what are the bets they will be at ANY church today?

Committed Christians shake their heads in wonder how the Media sees this as some sort of spiritual event or pilgrimage.

And let's not forget some of the stirring hymns that will be sung by Emperor 0bama himself:

'Praise Me from whom all blessings flow,
'Praise Me you peasants, there below!
'Praise Me everywhere, or you'll be toast!
'Praise Me, Praise Me, I am the MOST!'


Doesn't that really get the blood pumping?

'Glory Be to the Brother, and to the Hood, and to Chicago!
'As it was in Indonesia, where was I born? I gots amnesia!
'Socialism without end, Amen! AyyyyyyyyMEN!'

Can I get a witness?!?!

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*??

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”.

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.

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

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

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
