Skip to comments.Barack Obama’s open mockery of the Sign of the Cross

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.

I don’t think its funny either and is most definitely an insult to Catholics. However, we must remember, we are dealing with an arrogant, child in the WH, who thinks he is eye candy, amusing and God only knows what else goes on in that narcissistic mind of his.
“I feel bad for the two daughters being stuck with such dipwads for parents.”
Me, too! They seem like such sweet little girls, especially the younger one. I only hope they grow up to be bigger people than their folks.

I am encouraged by your kind comment. I have only two children and they are daughters. Always sort of take a defensive attitude towards famous peoples kids.
Drifting off topic here, but I remember Doris Day and her song "Whatever will be, will be". We can hope for the best.
There are WAY bigger fish to fry than this!
Is there anything Islamic about what Obama did?
Don't attribute to conspiratorial evil what can more easily explained by ignorance, stupidity, and a pathetic sense of humor.
There are plenty of legitimate transgressions of his to focus on which won't give ammo to those that already think the Right suffers from "ODS".
To those saying “No big deal” imagine the media hoopla had GWB or if Sarah Palin had done the same - we would be hearing how “stupid” they are for days, then polls asking if they are too stupid to be in office.
So it is a “big deal” because of the double-standards exhibited by the media - gaffes by the left are covered up, while gaffes by those on the right are covered 24/7
Which is how we end up with good people like Sarah Palin being demonized, and Marxist criminals like Commander Zero in the White House.
It is a “Big deal”
Never forget, Perception equals reality.
Any muslim would know the left hand is considered unclean.
To be clear, “all those Catholics” are apostate Catholics.
It’s increasingly hard to hear these Marxists cover up their Marxism by claiming to be “Catholic”, and somehow it works with the complicit media, who is delighted.
Pope: Christ Was Not a Prophet!
November 19, 2012 From theTrumpet.com
In a startling statement made during his Monday Angelus to the faithful, Pope Benedict declares Jesus Christ was no prophet.
At midday today the holy father appeared at the window of his study to recite the Angelus with faithful gathered in St. Peters Square. He commented on this Sundays gospel, focusing on Jesuss words about the end of time. So begins the report by the Vaticans own Information Service on a public statement the pope made on Sunday.
In a startling pronouncement about Jesus Christs revelation of the signs leading up to His return to Earth, Pope Benedict declared that Jesus does not describe the end of the world, and when He uses apocalyptic images, He does not act as a seer. On the contrary, He wishes to ensure that His disciples in every age remain unmoved by dates and predictions.
Wes...Orthodox bless themselves with their left hand making the sign of the cross,and neither the Roman or Orthodox rites worship statues or images.
I view the antics of this president as mockery a 12 year old would do but mockery none the less and symbolic of this regime....
AFR thanks for the posting
I sometimes make the sign of the cross with my left hand, I didn’t know it was forbidden.
>> He knew exactly what he was doing.
He’s a #ing idiot.
I do too. They’re privileged and already being groomed to become angry radicals like their mother.
That video should be the subject of every sermon in every church this coming Sunday, but it won’t happen.
Must have been the model for the Death Panels.
Left hand is the wiper. With water, no toilet paper.
