National Day Of Prayer...To Obama

"I’m rooted in the Christian tradition...I believe there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people." ~ Barack Hussein Obama

Barack Hussein Obama said in Turkey : "We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation or a Jewish nation or a Muslim nation. We consider ourselves a nation of citizens who are bound by ideals and a set of values."

This is the same Barack Hussein Obama who went to such great lengths to prove his Christianity to the nation during his Presidential campaign. Efforts that were politically expedient. He could not have Americans believe he is a Muslim, could he? If Americans had believed him to be a Muslim, he might not have been elected.

Yesterday was the National Day of Prayer, but one wouldn't have known it from information gathered from media resources. And one also wouldn't know it based on Obama's participation.

Because Obama didn't participate.

For any Obama worshipers who may have accidentally stumbled across this site searching for gems of wisdom from your messiah, the National day of Prayer is a day set aside to remind all people of faith, not only Christians, but Jews, and even Muslims, across the country to stop for at least a moment to ask God to bless our nation and her leaders.

Traditionally, the sitting American President at least attends a prayer breakfast to commemorate the National day of Prayer.

His excuse for his refusal to acknowledge the role of God in government was weak. Something very much like the weak excuse he had to queries about his refusal to wear a flag pin, and refusal to salute the flag.

One might ask why Obama, who emphatically declares himself to be Christian, wouldn't participate in such a noble commemoration.

Because, the way Obama sees it, he is God.

Why pray to himself?

Let me add to this: Because it is somewhat off topic, I couldn't add this to my post, but Obama has said he doesn't believe anyone will go to Hell, and he isn't even sure he will go to Heaven.

Additionally, Obama had very little religious instruction in his life save for the period of time he spent being educated in a Muslim school.

Spending 20 years as a member of a very non-Christian black liberation theology church, combined with his limited religious instruction, it is no wonder he has such non-biblical anti-Christian views.

Even a baby Christian would have no trouble deconstructing such "works salvation" and wishful thinking.

I don't care what Obama claims. He is definitely not a Christian.

Mark, as I was reading your post, the thought occurred to me, "he sees himself as god." And you then closed with that. So true... and so do the minions who follow him.

Krystal said...

Mark, you definately hit the bullseye both with your post and your comment. The man is definately not a Christian as he claimed to be.

What bothers me about it isn't just that he isn't a Christian and I know his end because I am a Christian (albeit not always a good one), what bothers me is that he lied about it and swore to it.

Maybe he's a Humanist? Maybe he's hiding being Muslim? Either way, he's a liar and THAT is what makes him not trustworthy.

Mark said...

Timothy, I would have thought my post was too short for anyone to have time to formulate a thought while reading it. Or maybe you are a slow reader?

Just kidding. I appreciate your input.

Krystal, that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to evidence that Obama isn't a Christian.

What about the fact that he and Michelle still haven't found a regular church to go to in Washington since his election? And with all the staffers attending various churches for him and reporting back, one would think at least one of his staffers would have found a church that worships Obama before now.

What about the fact that he continues to support every anti-Christian cause and movement he finds, or the fact that he has the audacity to insist on covering up a Christian icon when he speaks in front of it at Georgetown University?

If a man's faith is indeed known by the fruit he bears, Obama is not even close to being a Christian.

The reason Obama prays "privately" is obvious. He can't see the TelePrompter when he is face down on his prayer rug.

Mr Sirius said...

Why pray to himself? Are you kidding me? You sound like a fanatic nut pissed off that your boy couldn't run for a third time. Why does it bother you so much? He expressed respect in your wishes and you bash him cause he didn't stop the presses to spend 30 minutes praying? Read my post. It's targeted at people like you and your followers? Relax. You live in a free nation. Enjoy it. Life's too short to bash others because they don't pray the way you do.

Mark said...

Mr. Sirius, Obviously you missed the entire point of my post.

RE: "Why pray to himself? Are you kidding me?"

No, I'm not kidding. You or anyone else. Obama sees himself as God. He won't participate in the National Day of Prayer, because he sees no point in praying to himself. Now do you get it?

My boy? Who's my boy? If you're talking about Bush, well, I had my problems with him, but at least he knew he wasn't God. I dearly wish Obama had the same amount of integrity.

If your boy, Obama, respected my wishes he would impeach himself and turn himself into the authorities for just punishment.

And no, I don't bash him because he doesn't stop for thirty minutes to pray. I bash him because he's a Marxist who thinks he is God, and he will destroy this country by trying to turn it into a Marxist dictatorship with him as the dictator.

I don't have any followers. I don't feel the need to be worshipped. Perhaps you do.

RE: "You live in a free nation. Enjoy it. Life's too short to bash others because they don't pray the way you do.Yes, so far, it is a free nation. But if Obama has his way, it won't be free for long. I suggest you really study his policies with an open mind and you will see that he only has his own self interests in mind. Not yours, and not anyone else's.

And again, I don't bash him because he doesn't pray the way I do. He doesn't pray at all, which is the point of the post.

Geeesh! I take comment moderation off and in less than a week I get another Liberal troll.

Mark said...

Mr Sirius, I just read your profanity laced post, and be forewarned. If you bring that language over here, I will ban you. Period.

You are a very angry little man.

Like much of America, I honestly believe that Obama is a Muslim, and nothing he or anyone else says will change my mind on that. Not only do I believe that he IS a Muslim, but I also believe that if isn't the Antichrist, he certainly comes in as a close second as he is a deceiver of the first order.

During the campaign, his daughters stated that they do not celebrate Christmas, birthdays or other such holidays, well neither do Muslims.

And this "devout" "life-long" Christian, hasn't graced the inside of a church since the day he was inaugurated. Tells you a lot don't it?

Trader Rick said...



Rev. Gregori, I have to disagree he is neither a muslim or a Christian. He is a full-blown marxist. If you read the "communist manefesto" it is impossible to be a socialist and a man of faith beyond the State.

Joe said...

Mark, as I have stated elsewhere, if President BO is a Christian, then Jesus was wrong about what to expect from His followers.

Bravo, lad... One of the things I have repeatedly missed in some of Obama's civic unity speeches is the tools for getting the job done. Maybe it's because he jumps about the topic so much that makes it difficult? Now you have to give him the props where they are due: Obama is a very good orateur. When it comes to speaking to a crowd and handling the masses, he truly leaves George W. far behind. But then, speaking the words does not mean that they are in your heart or your life. In fact, here are the names of a couple of other legendary speakers: Will Rogers and Cary Grant.

Will stood on a stage and spoke of what he knew, who he was, and what he had seen, sometimes even in front of a camera. His real name was William Penn Adair “Will” Rogers. Everything in him that he shared came from his life experiences. When you looked at him and heard what he said, you knew you could believe him and trust him.

Cary Grant, much like Will, stood either on a stage or in front of a camera, and over the course of his lifetime he spoke of his experiences, his feelings, and several things that were NOT his own words. But he said them anyway and with great affect. Young women swooned over him and young men strived to be like him. -- But the truth will be revealed. -- Cary's real name was Archibald Alexander Leach, and while his stage name was chosen for him by others, they worked at crafting him into a money-making icon. (hmmm...) His entire career was spent creating fantasies for others. (Hmmm...) Even his wives could not all successfully claim that he was straight/bi/or what. (Double-Hmmm...) And his political dealings were just as convoluted as his life in that he claimed being a republican, donated all his money to British War Charities, and supported only those who worked the republican cause as he felt it should. Did any of that make him evil: absolutely not. Did it make him hard to trust: most assuredly.

How does all this tie in? Simple: we have a man in office as the President who has been very Cooper-like is his words and actions - choosing where to say and do as to best benefit from it in that moment - and who has not been very straight-forward about ANYTHING in his life. Not even when it comes to getting a new pet dog. Should we be allowed to see him at prayer (regardless of his faith): yes we should... because a leader who makes such claims should live by example.

So bravo, Mark. Call 'em as you see 'em and never stop.
