The mooselimb bros, being children of the father of lies a murderer from the start will believe the wink and nod that indicates it’s all taqqiya. Barry could find the truth much less live it.

Episcopalian? (Rev Wright) Christian? Muslim? Catholic? Is he Jewish too?

The October surprise will be Obama attending services at a Baptist church in Alabama.

but his homo-bros will love it because the Episcopalian Church was among the first to capitulate to the homo crowd, and allow homo bishops/priests and perform homo marriage. Wouldn’t want to be around an Episcopalian church when Christ returns.

Well, it’s nice to see the President go to church.

But, as many others do, I question the faith and the devotion to Christianity of this president.

For example, he says that he was attracted to Christianity as an adult, by tenets of Christianity such as our being our brother’s keeper and our sister’s keeper.

For Obama to cite a completely misunderstood and misinterpreted Bible story as his inspiration for Christianity, reveals that he apparently has very little understanding of Christianity.

Cain was being defiant to God, when he asked God if he was his brother’s keeper. He was not saying that he felt the responsibility to be his brother’s keeper.

So, for Obama to completely misunderstand the point of a Bible story makes me wonder how well he understands The Bible or Christianity at all.

One definition of “news” is something that is an exception to the rule. This definitely qualifies as news.

I wouldn’t want to be an abortion-supporting leftist when Christ returns. Especially not Barack Obama. And I much suspect that that is not even the worst of Obama’s dark side.

The worst part is the part we have yet to see. That will come out should he slime his way into another four years. And that will happen if enough folks refuse to vote against him by voting for Romney.

God help us.

All correct re “brother’s keeper”, and O’s own brother George gets not a thin dime from his wealthy (”rich”) brother. Dinesh DeSouza had to foot the bill for George’s child on a required medical procedure. What a scumbag!

The mooselimb bros, being children of the father of lies a murderer from the start will believe the wink and nod that indicates it’s all taqqiya. Barry couldn't find the truth much less live it.

Taqiyya is yet one more proof Islam is of the devil. In contrast, Jesus: “I have spoken openly to the world; I always taught in synagogues and in the temple, where all the Jews come together; and I spoke nothing in secret." And Paul: "...we do not use deception, nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, by setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God."

Deception is Satan's game, especially deception with the stink of self-righteousness all over it.

Very bad week for the narcissist. So time to shore up the image with a quick trip to church. He will stop at nothing to polish his political visuals. Nothing is sacred with this guy.

Am I confused?

I thought that the Episcopal churches celebrated “Holy Communion”

Do they really call it "Mass" or is this just sloppy reporting?

O’Bummer misunderstood the term “episcopalians!” He thought they said “episcop-alians,” and needed to call Hillary to find out where “Episcop” is located!

The Episcopal Church has replaced the Bible, Nicene Creed, and its own 39 Articles of Faith with the Marxist UN Millennium Development Goals.

The Presiding Bishop ("high priestess") and her henchmen deny the Immaculate Conception, Virgin Birth, Divinity of Jesus, The Resurrection, Good & evil, Heaven & hell, and just about anything that makes Christianity what it is. The clergy & lay leadership mouth the words of the liturgy, but believe none of it. It's now just a social activism organization.

Oh my gosh yes, there are some of such “high principle” that they are unwilling to vote for the lessor of two evils... all our righteousness are as filthy rags, even the righteousness of the “high principled”... but they can’t see beyond their own high moral standards and would rather call fire down from heaven (though God may let it touch them too) than to “soil their conscience”...

Hmmmm. I guess that means zer0 and Moochelle are just bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

I guess Moo chose an Episcopal Church because the kneel, sit, stand reminded her of a “Let's Move” aerobics video.
