WH Dossier ^ | August 19, 2012, 11:26 am | Keith Koffler

President Obama today made a rare appearance in church, strolling with his family across Lafayette Park to St. John’s, well known as the church where presidents pray. …

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

Exactly. We will see Obama regularly at Church until after the election, then it’s back to the Golf Course.

I see only three possible motives:

1. Purely a campaign photo op to perpetuate his “image.”
2. They have a larger crowd at church than at his campaign events.
3. He is praying for his own reelection....though I have doubts about his REAL knowledge of prayer.

Uh.... four.

Obama needs a replacement for Reggie Love. Especially with Michelle always gone on vacation and campaigning. This church is full of (and known for) sexual deviants of all kinds. Obama needs someone for company, especially since very few seem to want to see him in person anymore.

Someone on NPR this morning was insisting that Romney has to be asked about his Mormon faith at one of this year’s 4 presidential debates.

ONLY if Obama is asked if he believes that Jesus Christ is risen from the dead and has since walked among men. That is IF we are going to pose a “Christian litmus test” to the candidates during the debates.

Interesting trivia question. When people in the DNC proclaim Barack Obama to be a Christian, ask “what denomination”?

Maybe he’s a Unitarian like Grandma was. His mother was agnostic although she did share various religious texts. She gave him a “healthy skepticism of organized religion” (his phrase). Then there was the influence of 2 muslim fathers...

What? Where's the good 'ol Rev. Wright, Obomas religious mentor? Did he die?

Remember the Clinton Church photo ops during the Lewinsky trial? He had that Bible so close to the cameras, I could almost read it's pages.

Yeah. They're both a couple of real saints, aren't they? All they have to do is pull out that Holy card when they're in trouble, and they're immediately "politically redeemed".

related to your Rev Wright question, see this http://www.therightperspective.org/2010/12/03/obama-converted-spiritual-advisor-jim-wallis/

or explore Chapter 8 in “Cowards” (Beck 2012).

The church probably has a featured Left-wing speaker on the schedule for today. The last time Obama went to church that was the case.

Exactly. Schismatic First World Episcopal and Anglican churches are fully "reconciling" (corrupt, deviant, fallen-away, and full of seminary sodomites and lesbians propagating "practices of Egypt" </Maimonides>), so much so that the African and other Third World Anglicans, ironically, are on the verge of ditching the corrupt First World prebends.

Bump. Let them go there. Every question they throw at Romney, let the Republican side throw at Barky Obozo.

"Are you now, or have you ever been, a confessed Moslem? Are you now, or have you ever been, practicing taqiyya to advance the Moslem faith among its intended victims?" Then ask your question, and then ask him why he told the foreign minister of Egypt in 2009 that "I am a Moslem". Why he recited the Azaan, the call to prayer, in Arabic, in full, which contains in its verses the Shehada, the Moslem profession of faith, the recital of which in public makes a man a Moslem in the eyes of the Umma. And why he did it in an interview in 2007 with Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times, whom he knew to have a readership on seven continents.

If he is a "Christian" (scare quotes appropriate in view of the history of "black liberation theology"), then why did he confess Islam to Kristof in 2007 and again in Egypt in 2009, and arguably yet again in an interview with George Stephanopoulos? That's thrice -- which readers of the Christian Bible might find resonant with the Good Friday predawn denials of Simon Peter.

Of all the reasons I can think of not to vote for Obama (and they are legion), how often the man takes his family to church doesn’t even show up as a blip on the radar.

It’s his policies that matter; his religion (or lack thereof) is nothing but a distraction.

4. Obama feels it is his duty to be available at least occasionally for God so he can give God advice about how things should be run.

Did the Secret Service cover the crosses before he entered?

Or is the the kind of “church” that already removed all the crosses.
