Posted on 11/22/2012 6:32:26 PM PST by afraidfortherepublic
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.

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.
It could be a coincidence, if not fo two things:
1. Obama is right-handed, far as I know.
2. It falls into a very consistent pattern of behaviour.
I recall reading somewhere they were sending the 2 daughters to Sidwell Friends, a Quaker School. Of course the New England Quaker sects tend to be homosexual tolerant, while most other Quakers are more Scriptural conservative in their opposition to homosexuality.
Yep to both your comments.
yes, it was very gauche of him to be so sinister :)
Lets all we Christians begin the crucifixions and beheadings./s
Hey now... (LOL)
obama is left handed. you’ve been a bizzy bee all night, ain’t ya?
The lefty is a lefty. Convenient, eh?
“So it is a big deal because of the double-standards exhibited by the media”
The media does NOT have a double standard.
If it’s good for the revolution, it’s good. If it’s good for America, it’s bad.
One single standard, absolutely consistent. Quit complaining.
Kinda. Got a new database. To track what companies what unions are infesting. Not too much in it yet, but it may be a good thing for businesses not to do business with union hangouts.
Infectious. Like STDs.
Hehehe. Got their own directory. This is gonna be like taking candy from sheep.
Christ Himself acknowledged that He didn’t know the day or hour (Mark 13:32).
A portion of America’s “Christians” don’t seem to be Christian at all; they will be thrilled by all of this.
Base is filling.
Keep away from Airstep, Aiden of New England, Belleville Shoes...
These are all participating in union campaigning.
I recall reading somewhere they were sending the 2 daughters to Sidwell Friends, a Quaker School.
Your comments had me scurrying to Google. I was directed to the Sidwell Friends School website. I observed the information in the spirit of at least some positive views on the parenting of the Presidential couple. I do realize and indeed from my reading of "Dreams From My Father" the righteous anger and concern of many Freepers here. This is on the attempt to remake America.
Anyway, I am unable to find out whether the promotion of homosexuality is ensconced at Sidwell. I hope not. Fees for students grades 5-12 are $34,268. This is a bit of a ramble by me and please excuse this.
As for the fees, it brings to mind the two authors, Ernest Hemmingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Says Scott "You know the rich are different to us". The reply is "Yes, they have more money". Indeed they do.
that’s the way I always understood it
"What do Obama and God have in common? Neither has a birth certificate. How do they differ? God does not think he's Obama." - Rush Limbaugh
But commanded us to know the season
This will be a big factor in his reelection campaign in 2016.
