Father Barack Obama mocked the Sign of the Cross at the White House yesterday.
It was an open mockery of the Christian prayer that is accompanied by the immortal words used by peasants and kings over the centuries: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Obama, who is left-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does.
Obamas left-handed sign of the cross was made over a gobbling turkey during the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation Ceremony, that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving, having been resurrected by George H.W. Bush in 1989.
Obama departed from the usual presidential pardon granting the turkey a special dispensation in words as he twice made his left-handed Sign of the Cross.
There were lots of giggles from the two Obama daughters and lots of gobbling from the turkey recorded during the ceremony now on YouTube.
Clearly using his left hand for all to see, Obama made the Sign of the Cross backwards.

He knew exactly what he was doing.
“We are all Catholics now”
The jackass is a Muslim, what did we expect.
To him it was a property check!
Spectacles, testicles, wallet and watch!
Jesus doesn’t think He’s Barack Obama.
Any "American" president would know this!
He is left haded. Sinister...
He is left handed. Sinister...
In the Muslim culture, the left hand is the butt wiping hand.
Therefore anything you do with the left hand is an insult.
He was sending a shoutout to his Islamic buddies.
No wonder they had the Euthanize the poor Bird.
Speaking on behalf of the ancient Latin understanderers of FR... very cute.
As much as I dislike zero, I actually think he was trying to be funny by giving the turkey its last rites. And, yes, he is left-handed.
I know he has been on the Catholics with his obamacare, but this time, I don’t see anything sinister about what he did. I could be wrong, of course, and if I am - then I’ll be the first to say so.
He gets by with lots of things "no one ever does."
Yeah, IMO, you be OK. I couldna ever get the paganism that exalts cat holics.
Obama is torn between the crescent moon and the upside-down cross.
dont muslims have a particular disregard for the use of the left hand? this anti-Christian knew exactly what he was doing
