The Commander in Thief has done it again. If there is anyone surprised by this latest move they must either have been comatose or received a brain injury in the last 100+ days. Of course that fully explains those Kwazy Kos Kids but I digress.
B.O. will not be attending any National Pray Day events. NONE, NOT ONE, ZIP, ZERO, ZILCH. Now while that does not surprise me personally, as I have always considered him a spineless, godless, opportunist with delusions of relevancy, I am surprise that his handlers made such a misstep.
While Americans in the past have been tolerant of their politicians two faced hypocrisy concerning religion (think Teddy Kennedy- I know, I’m supposed to be nice because he’s sick and dying. Sorry facts is facts. He’s not a poster child for adherent Catholics) one of the ways people are reacting to events is a increase in religious observance. People are quite simply going to or going back to church. Many are in need of the comfort that comes from the knowledge that some entity is really in charge, that things can get better and that we can help make that happen. Government is not providing that, it can’t really. It can throw money at problems but it can’t come up with faith promoting experiences because it doesn’t believe in the power of anyone or thing but itself, especially the group that has taken over.
They believe in nothing but the arm of the flesh, they bow to each other but not to God, they believe in doing unto other before others do unto them,
Eat, drink, and be merry; ……..; yea, lie a little, take the advantage of one because of his words, dig a pit for thy neighbor; there is no harm in this; and do all these things, for tomorrow we die…….”
Of course the rest of the verse says that God will only beat us with a few stripes and we will be saved, but since they don’t believe in God the rest is irrelevant. ( The writer of the verse was pointing out the folly of this way of thinking, just to be precise.) The CIT can sit in Reverend Wright’s church for 20+ years and listen to racist, bigoted hyperbole but he can’t have breakfast with a group of religious leaders who are interested in the survival of this nation?
So now “The One” will “publicly observe National Prayer Day – privately, he’ll pray as he does every day.”
Wow, what a sterling example of showing his utter disregard for the faith of millions of Americans of various faith, Christian, Mulims, Jews et al. What a waste of opportunity for unity, consensus and bridge building……… Is this the Hope and Change we can believe in? No, all socialist, fascist, and communistic governments do away with “God” right off the bat. He’s simply following the play book. It’s the ONLY thing he seems to be able to do competently.
