What? No Easter Greeting?
Just when I thought the current team running the White House might have used up all its allotted mistakes comes word that President Obama failed to issue either either an Easter or a Good Friday greeting to the nation.
Now, lets forget for a moment that these greetings, which presidents issue on many holidays and commemorations of events, are largely perfunctory and symbolic gestures that nobody cares about.
Until theres a problem with them.
Fox News first caught the blunder and put it into context that makes the omission insulting to Christians. The mistake is odd enough to call into question just what Obamas priorities are.
By comparison, the White House has released statements recognizing the observance of major Muslim holidays and released statements in 2010 on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.
The White House . . . did release an eight-paragraph statement heralding Earth Day. Likewise, the presidents weekend address mentioned neither Good Friday or Easter.
Obama, Fox notes, did head out to church yesterday and held an Easter prayer breakfast at the White House last week.
Obama is on a roll for religious holiday greeting screw ups. Fox News writes:
In 2010, Obama was criticized for releasing an all-inclusive Easter greeting. He reached out to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and people of no faith at all in a statement about a holiday that is uniquely Christian.
And as I noted last week, the president released a Passover greeting this month that compared the ancient Jewish exodus from Egypt to the Arab political awakening this year, which would be a beautiful thing if most Arabs didnt seek Israels destruction.
The president is, of course, hosting the Easter Egg Roll at the White House today. But Easter isnt really about rolling eggs on a manicured lawn, now is it?
Apparently his spokes-moron was asked about this and (no surprise) weasel-worded his way around the slight.
I hate these people.
Psst....Our president is a
M U S L I M!
human not muslim. There you go.
But, of course, we all know the Illegal is a “committed. believing Christian” and is NOT A MUSLIM.
When you're a muslim, you cannot acknowledge that Jesus was beaten, crucified and died, and resurrected. Obambi, being a muslim, believes, as Muhammed did, that Jesus, who was only a prophet to the heathens, would never have been allowed to suffer and die . . . Allah would have stopped it.
So, our muslim, illegal alien cannot even hint that Jesus died. Hence, he and Moochelle read from bunny books on Easter instead of from our Bible . . . kinda' like a direct, nasty thumb in the eye of all Christians.
baraq always refers to the quran as the “holy quran”.
With an outstanding arabic accent.
Made the statement that the muslim call to prayers is one of the most beautiful sounds on earth.
baraq goes out of his way to make statements around muslim holy days, but stumbles around about the true meaning of Easter.
but he’s not a muslim. Just ask his media.
This aughta say...........
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men." "Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome." -- Winston Churchill
That's how to piss off an Islamist in the Whitehouse.
He was raised as a non Christian.. His grandparents were socialists that “sometimes” went to a Unitarian/Universalist church.. my guess is he has no clue that Easter is actually the most important Christian holy day
For a guy who says he doesn’t want the American people to think he’s a Muslim, he sure as hell wants somebody to think he is.
Wife and I were thinking last night that the only networks to have anything on about the story of the crucifiction were religious networks. It’s open season on Christians. I may not live to see it but I believe in this generation saying anything considered “Christian” will be outlawed.
Where’s the Baptismal Certificate!?!
More blasphemy from Odryrotula!
The world hates the name of Christ.. that is why it is silent on the murder of Christians by Islam..
This is outrageous and needs to be addressed. Jews have experienced this many times in history, and if our history has anything to teach, it is that when this type of bigotry exists, it must be addressed and stopped immediately. It is a very sad statement regarding what this nation has become under this “president.”
Wow ,he is some kind of Christian is he not?
This is the equivalent of Obama SILENTLY sticking his middle finger at us yet again.
And he hopes he’s just as subtle as he’s always been (in other occassions).
