Skip to comments.OBAMAS WOULD LIKE TO NEUTER CHRISTMAS
Posted on 12/08/2009 7:03:09 AM PST by markomalley
In yesterdays New York Times, there was an article about White House social secretary Desirée Rogers. In it, reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg wrote: When former social secretaries gave a luncheon to welcome Ms. Rogers earlier this year, one participant said, she surprised them by suggesting the Obamas were planning a non-religious Christmas .
This same participant said that the Obamas did not intend to put the manger scene on display (this was confirmed by the White House). Indeed, as Stolberg wrote, there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive and whether to display the crèche.
Catholic League president Bill Donohue addressed this issue today:
Unlike almost all Americansincluding atheiststhe Obamas do not give their children Christmas gifts. We know this because Barack bragged about this last year to People magazine. So it should come as no big surprise that he and his wife would like to neuter Christmas in the White House. Thats their natural stepto ban the public display of Christian symbols. Have any doubts? Last April, Georgetown University was ordered to put a drape over the name of Jesus as a condition of the president speaking there.
If the Obamas want to deprive their children of celebrating Christmas, that is their business. It is the business of the public to hold them accountable for the way they celebrate Christmas in the White House. We know one thing for sure: no other administration ever entertained internal discussions on whether to display a nativity scene in the White House.
I once knew a Pentecostal Baptist family who did not celebrate Christmas with tress or gift-giving. But I don't think this is why the Obamas do not celebrate it....
Muslims do not believe that Jesus is God.
I don’t know what could be MORE inclusive than the Christmas message (ie the Gospel, the good news that Christ died for our sins and rose again). Disturbing that a Christian President would not celebrate his religion openly. Hmmm....
Once a mooooslum always a moooslum
I thought on a prior thread of WH decorations, that a navitity scene was indeed up.
I wonder if Obammy is going to allow it this year?
Now, why would a Christian family want to do something like this? Maybe because it’s NOT a Christian family?
I had to research but I found an old "Night before Christmas"...and it did indeed say "Happy Christmas To All".
There's no way out...Obama is a born and raised Muslim...Christian?? Wright's church and christianity are miles apart and I believe Wright was a Muslim, too.
I hung my White House Christmas ornaments upside down on my tree. I thought it appropriate given the circumstances.
I heard on Laura Ingraham that the official ornaments were ones of vegetables, as grown in Michele's garden.
0bama is no Christian. Going to some church does not make someone a Christian, esp. if the church teaches race hatred and “liberation theology” (Marxism dressed up in heretic pseudo-Christian language).
The spirit of the anti-Christ.
1 John 4:3
but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
From work connections, I am usually offered the opportunity to purchase one every year (I never have taken advantage of that opportunity).
Come to think of it, I haven't seen a solicitation this year.
Well, the islamic new year starts on 18 December, and the 0bamas will celebrate Ashura on the 27th. I guess they figure that’s enough festivity for the rest of the year.
The British say “Happy Christmas,” not “Merry Christmas.”
This is weird. Is this something that comes from Michelle's side of the family?
What a heart breaking disappointment this man is. Not really an American, certainly not even Western...
Someone pointed that out to me the other day.
HOW shall we do Kawaanza this year, folks?? HOW many discussions did they have about that? What is Oprah having Christmas At The WH Special for when the occupants do NOT wish to observe Christmas, much less celebrate it?
But I do note that Obama seemed to have a fine time taking notice of Ramadan and Eid.
They put up the creche in its traditional place, but apparently with some Obama angst. (gag)
The original article is actually earlier, I believe; there was a lot of negative comment when Desiree Rogers said this, and the WH had to back down and put up the creche in its usual place...this year, at least.
I’d like to neuter the Obamas.
Just imagine what kind of tree ornaments they could think up, LOL!!!
Maybe they finally got tired of partying all the time.
This is just one more thing on the list of reasons to dislike the man, but honestly, I don’t care about this near as much as the policy disasters he’s bringing to America.
I can keep Christmas, and I don’t care what Obama does. That will be between him and God one day. As long as no one infringes on my way of keeping Christmas, I’m fine.
Obama is a scumbag. But his policies are what are going to impact my life, not his personal life.
I think it comes from Bambi’s Muslim past, unless Michelle was a Jehovah’s Witness as a child (a lot of blacks are). Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t celebrate Christmas.
However, her father was a big Chicago ward boss, so it’s hard to imagine that the family was JW.
Bingo - everything they do for the traditional WH Christmas celebrations will be a charade and they will be throwing up in their mouths a little bit.
Barack Obama is not a CHRISTIAN, he is a MUSLIM
The Obamas are always missing in action when an important holiday, especially patriotic or religious is observed.
I wonder if Michelle wears a burka in private. sarc/
Just WHICH church do the Obamas attend? I thought that they were still deciding upon a church?????
A Muslim is a Muslim, and there is no Christ or should we say No Christmas.
no birthday gifts for Jesus either
maybe they will emerge from the Kailua compound to visit the little unitarian church on the hill where they will remember dear beloved Toot with Bette Midler music...... but maybe not
The church he attended for 20 years, where he was married, was the "Trinity United Church of Christ," which had a "theology" basically like that of Jim Jones' People's temple.
Thanks for the explanation. Is it bad for me to be delighted that a depiction of the coming of the Son of God and Risen Savior Jesus Christ causes angst for Barack Hussein Obama?
Possibly. It was reported in the “Style” section of the New York Times, but I don’t know if that was before or after the Vanity Fair article.
At least they aren’t decorating a tree with sex toys like Gary Aldrich claims the Clinton White House did.
It could only be an improvement. I think that when women are in the private quarters, however, they’re permitted not to wear burkas...
Obama and his supporters are humanists whose loyalty is to the STATE.....
A donation in their names has been to the Human Fund.
The Obamas have the usual twisted left wing view of all Western traditions and religions.
Whether or not they consider themselves Muslim or atheistic, they have a misguided respect for all things they view as having been excluded from Western culture. And they wish to put aside all the awful trappings of Western Civilization.
In short they are dangerous idiots. Only a GD fool would decide to dis Christmas from the White House.
The English say Happy Christmas.
But the angel said to them,"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people"
Psalm 109:8 (May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.)
Remember when they first came to town, that they just couldn't make up their minds?
Is Barry Hussein Obama scared to be seen on camera attending midnight services on Christmas Eve?
Hillary's gotta be laughing... cackling hysterically, hilariously....
