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.

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
To a Muslim, anything done with the left hand is an insult.
Obama was up to his same old snarky tricks as when he goes into his studious expression and gives everyone the “Bird” with his middle finger.
Total low rent.
just a muslim having fun
I’m a left handed Catholic and I am not particularly insulted. There are a lot more reasons to be p*ssed off at him than that. But then I think people made way too much of the stupid gag at the tomb of the unknown. For crying out loud, lighten up. What he did was stupid. He should apologize. He won’t. End of story.
“Total low rent.”
But “he won”, you know. He got re-elected - purely “on principle”.
There is a more disturbing trend. He manifests a trend of arrogant illegitimate behavior such that he isn’t held accountable for his actions and he seems to enjoy it. The high he gains from these little insults won’t last at the same innocuous level, but he will further degenerate into seeking more heinous activity in order to satiate his same lust for arrogant criminality.
Blasphemy, pure and simple.
I feel bad for the two daughters being stuck with such dipwads for parents.
What else would the Antichrist do?
Muslims believe that the left hand should only be used for “unclean acts.”
Obama making the Sign of the Cross using his left hand...
Not saying anything specific, but it’s interesting...
Concealed MessagesThe Importance of Hand Signs to the Illuminati
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads...
On the Other Hand...
There is a great symbolic difference between the use of the left and right hands. The right hand is said to be the hand of blessing, a good and positive influence, and those who use it in the occult world are known as those on the “right-handed path.” This is considered “white magic.”
Those on the left-handed path, however, are practitioners of “black magic.” Full-fledged Satanists are typically of the left-handed path, though, in reality, it does not matter to the devil which hand is used!
The left hand is ever considered the sinister hand. It is associated with words like diabolical, witchlike, clever, deceptive, sly, cunning, evil, wrong, backward, and perverse. The evil eye is said to be the left eye. Some early Christians (for example, the writer of the apocryphic Gospel of Nicodemus) taught that of the two thieves crucified next to Jesus, the one at his left side rejected truth and was consigned to hell.
Sorry, but everything ObamaHUSSEIN does is heavily scripted!
Nothing is done that hasn’t been cleared by his Superiors!
The Chinese use their left hand to wipe their asses as well as many other cultures! Obama knows exactly how perverted and insulting he was to Christians when he used the left handed reverse cross! Everyone of his Muslim Brotherhood Associates Loved watching Obama trash Christians yesterday as he does every day! How will he react if someone happens to burn his Quran?
Clearly using his left hand for all to see, Obama made the Sign of the Cross backwards.
Well, of course — demonic.
If that is the case, Obunghole’s idea of funny is scummy. Like pretty much everything else the um-American a-hole does.
The bird that was euthanized was from a previous year.
Obama’s culture wipe their poop with a bare left hand as in China and then wash the hand whenever they get a chance! So they always use their right hand for signs of respect and eating!
Obama is disgusting and Treasonous!
I believe we will be seeing much more of this sort of F.U. sort of mockery as he does not need to be reelected.
all those Catholics who wouldn’t vote for a Mormon will regret it!
I think the man is just an ignorant fool.
99.99999% of the time Obama has no idea what he is doing , he thinks he is doing something good ,but he always gets it completely wrong
Well stated. It is what I expect. I think he has a need to mock his opponents, to show his power over them by making these gestures. I suspect that underneath it all he is very angry for how he was treated as a child.
I am not a psychologist, this is simply my personal opinion.
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.
