EDITORIAL: Obama to Christians: Forget you

From The Washington Times:

President Obama delivered official messages for Passover, Ramadan and Diwali. But for Easter? Not so much. The White House came under fire this week for neglecting to issue official statements for either Easter or Good Friday, though Mr. Obama did take time Friday to address Earth Day, a celebration observed by tens of thousands of pagan worshippers of the earth goddess Gaia.

Mr. Obama clearly didn’t simply forget Easter. He and his family attended an Easter service. He presided over the annual Easter egg roll, a White House tradition dating back to the administration of Rutherford B. Hayes. Mr. Obama also hosted his second annual Easter prayer breakfast, at which he said “as busy as we are, as many tasks as pile up, during this season, we are reminded that there’s something about the resurrection – something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ, that puts everything else in perspective.” His brief breakfast address could well have served as the official Easter proclamation, if the White House had thought of it.

Mr. Obama has had a difficult official relationship with Easter. His 2010 Easter proclamation was criticized because he attempted to include other faiths in what is a uniquely Christian holiday. This was not equal-opportunity multiculturalism; his Ramadan message did not include a shout-out to American Jews, for example, even though his 2011 Passover message bizarrely related the holiday to the current Arab uprisings. Likewise, Mr. Obama’s 2009 message stated that, “while we worship in different ways, we also remember the shared spirit of humanity that inhabits us all – Jews and Christians, Muslims and Hindus, believers and nonbelievers alike.” He also quoted passages from a historic 1945 sermon delivered by a chaplain in the wake of the fierce fighting on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima but edited out any mention of Jesus.

  1. Obama is deliberately working to cause as much damage and hatred as he can, he wants the US to be so weakened that we are no longer strong enough to defend ourselves.

  2. Obama is like any other “closet” Muslim who practices taqiyya and kitman whenever it suits him.

    Did the public really think that he became “Baptist” when there was no death fatwa issued against him when he supposedly left Islam?

    I didn’t think so, either.

    And then the White House, not the Department of Health for the state of Hawaii, has just reissued his “birth certificate” after more questions went unanswered about his citizenship.

    Which brings me to the fact that no Muslim is truly a citizen of any secular nation, but first and foremost a member of the ummah, the world body of Muslims.

    If the MSM and the liberal left would only connect the dots with regard to the current CiC, then they might learn a thing or two about the now-famous quote from Mo the thug that “War is deceit”.

    I have been a fan of your site and Vled’s related YT channel for some time. I think this is an important public education effort. So it is critically important that you not allow your project to descend into conspiracy-mongering and partisan bashing. I know that it is tempting to do so, since you have a platform that is garnering increasing attention.

    But please don’t do it. If you turn your anti-jihadist website into a birther website, a Tea Party website, an anti-gay website, or a website dedicated to anti-Obama grousing, then you will have diluted your message and you will lose fans. Starting with me.

    The President celebrated Easter Sunday in church, spoke about the Resurrection at a special prayer breakfast several days prior, and hosted the White House Easter Egg roll. He didn’t issue a proclamation, but neither did George W. Bush in any of his 8 years in the White House. Re-posting garbage like this from the Washington Times undermines your credibility.
