Skip to comments.Obama nurtures his faith [on his b-day gathers pastors via phone to pray for him in the year ahead]

President Barack Obama isnt an overtly religious man. He and his family rarely attend church. He almost never elaborates in public about his own relationship to his Christian faith.
But away from the public eye, his advisers say the president has nurtured a spirituality thats served to help ground him during turbulent times.
Every year on Aug. 4, the presidents birthday, Obama convenes a group of pastors by phone to receive their prayers for him for the year to come. During the most challenging of times, prayer circles are organized with prominent religious figures such as megachurch pastor Joel Hunter, Bishop Vashti McKenzie of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and the Rev. Joseph Lowery, a civil rights activist.
Each morning for the past five years, before most of his aides even arrive at the White House, Obama has read a devotional written for him and sent to his BlackBerry, weaving together Scripture with reflections from literary figures such as Maya Angelou and C.S. Lewis.................

What a pant load.
I pray that we are relieved from his leadership.
Blah blah blah......working the neighborhood clerics
merely harkens back to the days when Obama was a
community organizer without a fancy title. He prays
at the altar of the state and the state prays at the altar
“He prays at the altar of the state and the state prays at the altar of Obama.”
He prays in the direction of Mecca, actually.
Gosh what a tireless servant of The Lord - he checks his Blackberry "before most of his aides even arrive."
I pray for this Kenyan POS too...but my prayer is “different”.
FOR him or TO him?
- snort - snort - snort - “...maybe a little blow...”
".................................................."And that is why they hate conservatives. They hate you because you are killers of their dream. You are defenders of a Constitution that thwarts their cause. They hate you because your reactionary commitment to individual rights, to a single standard and to a neutral and limited state obstructs their progressive designs. They hate you because you are believers in property and its rights as the cornerstones of prosperity and human freedom; because you do not see the market economy as a mere instrument for acquiring personal wealth and stocking political war chests, but as both means and end.
Conservatives who think progressives are misinformed idealists will always be blind-sided by the sheer malice of the left -- by the cynicism of those who pride themselves on their principles; by the viciousness of those who champion sensitivity; by the intolerance of those who call themselves liberal; and by the ruthless disregard for the well-being of the poor on the part of those who preen themselves as their champions.
Conservatives are surprised because they see progressives as merely misguided, when they are, in fact, morally and ontologically -- misdirected. They are the messianists of a false religious faith. Since the redeemed future that justifies their existence and rationalizes their hypocrisy can never be realized, what really motivates progressives is a modern idolatry: their limitless passion for the continuance of Them........................."
Pastors praying with Satan. Maybe we are coming to the end.
If he really prayed in the direction of Mecca then
Obama would not be godless. He IS godless....and Godless.
And as President Lincoln once said, I have been driven to my knees many times by the overwhelming conviction that I had no place else to go.
Where’s the lightning?
That’s horrible of Zero to compare himself to Lincoln, I’m damn sure that unlike zero, Lincoln was not thinking about Reggie!
He has no shame and his arrogance is without any boundaries.
he called it in.....what a disgrace.
I’m praying he gets an incurable case of the trotts that lasts the rest of his sorry life.
Is that wrong?
We know exactly how important “spirituality” is to Obama. Not only is he in favor of abortion on demand at any point including shortly after birth, but he is willing to trample the fundamental, God-given human right to freedom of religion in order to promote unlimited abortion paid for by others. No one could support that position without (1) celebrating pure evil, and (2) believing that religious beliefs have no real meaning.
Sounds like an obama-based faith initiative. Hey, everyone, pray for me! Does he ever pray openly for others?
Why does this “deeply religious” harass Christians who are trying to live their lives according to their beliefs. I guess you could say he’s not just PLAYING the devil’s advocate.
