Obama family to worship at Shiloh Baptist Church for Easter
Washington Post ^ | April 24, 2011 | Hamil Harris

Posted on 04/24/2011 6:42:27 AM PDT by Zakeet

Long before the sun rose over the Shiloh Baptist Church, people were passing through metaldetectors at the historic African American congregation where President Barack Obama and his family will celebrate Easter.

[Snip]

Rev. Wallace Charles Smith, in the church's program, said, "We are honored to welcome to our 10 a.m. Easter service President Barack Obama, First LadyMichelle Obama, and daughters Malia and Sasha. Shiloh prays for the first family every Sunday and we thank God for the wonderful inspiration they provide to our nation."

[Snip]

The 3,000-member D.C. congregation [was] started by freed slaves.

Well folks he is in one of his campaign modes for sure. It is national news that he even decided to attend a church on Easter.

A few months ago Obongo said he did not attend Sunday services because it would be too disruptive to any church he went to

I predict Obongo and family will opt for diversity and attend a lot of different black and liberal churches as the election draws closer

More accurately the headline would read: obama family to be on display at Shiloh Baptist Church for Easter

Good choice - looks like there’s a golf course 3.23 miles east of Shiloh.

Was the Pastor's Easter Sunday Sermon titled "G-D Damn America"?

You know, just so the Obama's would feel comfortable, and all.

One question I would ask President Obama which might turn him into a verbal pretzel would be: What caused you to reject Islam and become a Christian?

Going to church or not...

nobama hates you, hates your children, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America. nobama is the Destroyer.

Have a wonderful Easter.

You aren’t thinking of the National Arboretum, are you? Anyway, that’s very, very close to the other side of the Anacostia River, and Obama doesn’t do “esst of the river”. It’s a black class thing.

No, but Rev. Wright DOES apparently attend the Shiloh Church (see Wright with head down looking mad) in article.

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/dc/2008/04/rev_jeremiah_wright_quiet_at_h.html

And apparently, the pastor of the Shiloh church is another ‘less than desirable’ black minister... one of many that the Obamas seem to embrace. Dee a pattern here?

What kind of Christian sits in a church for 20 years in which the pastor spews anti-american and anti-white hatred on a weekly basis, and only abandons that church when it gets some negative publicity?

Yeah... the thing nobody wants to really discuss (Hanity a little).. but especially “The Great One” won’t discuss it.... this is about Race. Obama does what he does because he’s a racist. It’s not that he’s a marxist, or a socialist or whatever. He’s a racist and it’s that simple. He wants to empower poor black people. To make them more wealthy, provide them health care, more and better opportunities etc etc. That’s it. Until people understand he’s a racist and everything he does is about race we’ll never get understanding of the issues America has now.

LOL! I passed that horrific thing often on way to Cincy from Dayton area. It really was pathetic. Even heard the pastor there (who lives on other side of I-75 in huge mansion and has an elaborate horse barn that matches his house, must be good to be king). Heard the minister originally wanted a huge plexi-glass sheet placed under the surface of the pond so that he could walk on water...geeez. But sure fits with the statue.

As for uhbama-he sets a pathetic example of Christianity for his nation if he is a Christain.

Aren't Muslims encouraged to lie ( to infidels, of course) if it furthers their ultimate purpose?

He is attending the service, he worships down the street at the mosque.

That’s why Reagan did not attend public worship services either....but Reagan truly embraced Christianity, Øbama uses it as a prop.

Just a jive turkey putting in a campaign appearance. More Hopey Changey showmanship from the red diaper doper baby.

Google Earth shows a Langston Golf Course in Anacostia Park - it’s ESE of Shiloh but I don’t know anything about the neighborhood.

You got me. I haven’t heard of Obama going there. If so, the whole of Ward 8 would have never forgotten it.

Langston probably goes back to segregation, and is an in-city municipal golf course.

Jeremiah Wright has been welcomed by this church (Shiloh) too:

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/dc/2008/04/rev_jeremiah_wright_quiet_at_h.html

2008 article says the minister laid hands on Wright after he’d brought shame to the Obama scampaign.
