MIAMI The priest prayed an Our Father. The president lit a candle. And while gazing together at a revered image of Cubas patroness, the priest reminded the president of the suffering of Cubas people.
Only in the United States thats possible, said the Rev. Juan Rumin Dominguez, rector of the National Shrine of Our Lady of Charity in Miami, as he recalled the whirlwind, unexpected visit of President Barack Obama early Thursday afternoon.
The president was on his way to the airport after attending a Democratic fundraiser the night before and spending the morning at the National Hurricane Center.
For me it was an honor and a sign that we live in a free country, said Dominguez, himself a Cuban exile. To be able to tell President Obama to his face about the feelings of thousands of people who visit the shrine every day.
The shrine is a symbol of faith and hope for Cubas exiles since before their donated pennies paid for its construction in the early 1970s; now it is a first stop also for thousands of immigrants from Central and South America who continue arriving in South Florida.

Shocked?! Has nothing to do with Obama wanting to restore ties to a government (Castro’s) that brutally subject their populace? Really? Are you sure? Do you think we are stupid? These are the questions the MSM should be asking.
The “RATS”are running SCARED!!!What was Obongo doing at The Hurricane Center?Probably complaining that there just aren’t ENOUGH????????????????????????
Praises to Oslama for the totally unscripted unrehearsed exercise of his, uh, faith.
After attending a Democrat fundraiser one must to penance. Hehehe.
According to the Salesian news service, [Michelle Obama] told the priest in charge that her husband "always carries with him a photograph with an image of Mary Help of Christians, to whom, those present reported, the first family of the United States has great devotion." For Catholics, the special prayer to Jesus through his mother Mary for divine aid is about as, well, Catholic as you can get (evidence of a particular supplication to the Virgin dates back to the 3rd century, according to some sources). It is also more evidence for my colleague Jeff Weiss's theory that Obama is actually a closet Catholic and not a crypto-Muslim, as many believe.
-- from the thread Obama's Devotion to the Virgin Mary: Who Knew?
What did he shock him with, a Taser?
Reading that Obie visited a church dedicated to Our Lady of Charity, I thought the irony could only be improved upon if it had been a church dedicated to Mary, Help of Christians . . . then I read further. Those Obamas, no flies on them.
No wonder this didn’t hit the sycophant press. The priest told off The 0ne.
“O” couldn’t resist the opportunity for a ‘Christian photo op’!
What a whore
And you (or anybody else) believed Michelle 0bama????
theory that Obama is actually a closet Catholic and not a crypto-Muslim,
Yeah, I saw that theory yesterday ....
It was coming out the back end of a cow.
The Kenyan Usurper is a mohammedan. Take it to the bank.
Payback's a bitch, Fr. Dominguez.
I hope every paper you've ever touched is in perfect order.
Wow....the dude didn’t catch on. Obama just gave Castro a big kiss!!
You really made me laugh.
I just keep on thinking what would B. Hussein Obama's penance have to be for promoting abortion and the long list of crimes he has committed.
No more so than I took these claims seriously:
A Catholic Wind in the White House
Bush Memoir Says He Returned to His Faith, Time and Time Again in Office [Bush's Closet Catholicism]
George W Bush meets Pope amid claims he might convert to Catholicism
Photo is missing the horns. Must have been photoshopped out.
Ronald Reagan had a much closer professional relationship with the then Pope ... You gonna claim he was a 'closet Roman Catholic'??? How 'bout Maggie Thatcher? She was in there with Ronnie and The Pope. Was Maggie Thatcher a 'Closet Roman Catholic'???
Leave the bovine waste matter in the pasture where it belongs.
The earth shook and the smell of sulphur preceded him. :-)
