OBAMA GOES TO CHURCH!
Drudge Report ^ | 09/19/10 | Drudge Report

Posted on 09/19/2010 6:39:11 AM PDT by coaltrain

Sent: Sun Sep 19 09:01:22 2010 Subject: Sunday pool report 1

The first family left the White House on foot this morning for the 9am choral holy eucharist service and sermon at St John's Church Lafayette Square.

The Obamas walked out of the residence at 8.49am and crossed the park to the nearby Episcopal church.

The president was wearing a dark suit and held Sasha Obama's hand. She was wearing a blue dress and cream cardigan. Michelle and Malia Obama were wearing cream-colored dresses. (Check photos for accuracy of descriptions. It's sunny and pool was at a distance.)

The service sheet doesn't indicate what the sermon is on but the gospel is Luke 16:1-13, which ends 'You cannot serve God and wealth.'

Lafayette Park and Pennsylvania Avenue in front of White House were closed to the public.

They aren’t sincere in doing this. Typical Narcissist act.

I think this says more about Obama’s fear of November than his family’s spirituality. I hate to be cynical, but it is odd that he finally decides to take his family to church as his/dems poll numbers dive.

They are like the people who go to church only near Christmas or Easter.

So now they try the pious act. Not many will be fooled.

Not after 20 months of WH residency. Did the family include Obama’s mother-in-law?

This is funny and a true sacrifice for Obama giving up his golf game on Sunday's. Maybe he will experience this

All we can do is pray!

I agree he fears November and that is likely his motive. I also think he is trying to show people that he is not a moslem. Really.

Heh.

I certainly the church didn’t pass the collection by him and the Moocher. He would take at least 39% and she would scarf up all that was left.

Lk 16:10-13

Jesus said to his disciples:
“The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
is also trustworthy in great ones;
and the person who is dishonest in very small matters
is also dishonest in great ones.
If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth,
who will trust you with true wealth?
If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another,
who will give you what is yours?
No servant can serve two masters.
He will either hate one and love the other,
or be devoted to one and despise the other.
You cannot serve both God and mammon.”

Was the “Rev.” Wright there? Spouting his anti-American tripe? Obama never went to church - he spent 20+ years attending a weekly hate America rally. And now he is the POTUS. Lord, save this nation.

Not just a photo op, but an attempt to making taxing the rich a moral imperative. And in typical apostate fashion, the scriptures were conveniently misquoted.

Let us all remember that the koran instructs believers that lying to the infidel is a virtue.

BeeHoe realized a little too late that his transparency wasn’t so transparent. He needs to tweak it a little.

That's a safe bet. And it's a good sign for us, regarding the mid-terms.

I think you are correct. He has been taking a lot of heat on the muslim thing. It has also been noticed by some in the media that for a self professed christian it was odd that he didn’t go to church regularly.

Regardless the reason, he did not go because his faith drove him there. He went most assuredly for the photo-op. Few communists of his type have a belief in God.

"I agree he fears November and that is likely his motive. I also think he is trying to show people that he is not a moslem. Really."

"Heh."

Indeed.

More amazing is that Zero and his advisers are so obtuse that they didn't start with these photo-ops 12 months ago. I suppose he was fearful of annoying his Muslim supporters. Someone must have told him that there are more Christians who vote than Muslims who vote in the US. (Someone still needs to tell him that there are more people who work than people on welfare in the US. At least for today.)

The Episcopal Church invites all baptized Christians to communion. I think this may exclude him. But it probably won’t stop him.

It looks very suspicious, but let’s pray that something which brings humility and conscience will take place in the heart. It is possible that the little girls will hear something which will impress and bring solid and long lasting fruit in their lives. We all would do well to say a prayer for the message which will be given there today.

Ok, this is wild, I visited DC for the first time in June. We parked in front of this Church. It is super close to the White House. Of the very few non public building places in DC I would know. This is the One.

That he has chosen to go to church is a GOOD thing, that he has taken his Children is a Good thing. Everyone has a chance to be saved.

Maybe the hand of the Lord will work in his and his family’s life.
