Has President Obama Suddenly Gotten Religion?



President Obama began his Inauguration Day by attending worship services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in the Nation’s Capital along with his wife Michelle and their daughters Sasha and Malia.

It was a rare church appearance for the First Family. During, during their first four years residing in the White House, they found time for the Lord not even half as many times as they managed to get away for family vacays.

After services yesterday at St. Johns, during which the president stood to receive a blessing from Bishop Vashti McKenzie, the First Family’s next stop was the U.S. Capitol, where Mr. Obama delivered his second Inaugural Address.

What amazed was the number of religious references the president made as he spoke to the hundreds of thousands assembled on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., and the millions more of us watching around the country.

It was so unlike Mr. Obama to speak of “the tenets of our faith.” To agree with the nation’s founders that we are all, everyone, “endowed by our Creator” with certain unalienable rights.

To declare “freedom is a gift from God.” To mention “the eyes of God.” To profess that the planet is “commanded to our care by God.” To advocate the freedom of “every soul on Earth.” To affirm his “oath to God and country.”

Then, to wrap up his remarks not only with the perfunctory “God bless you,” but also by beseeching the Almighty to “forever bless the United States of America.”

I’d like to believe that the President recently experienced some sort of religious transformation, like Saul of Tarsus blinded by the light of the Savior on the road to Damascus.

I’d like to believe that his recent church attendance and religion-infused Inaugural Address are tell-tale signs that he will govern in his second term according to Godly principles.

But, alas, I am unconvinced.

Not the least because of Mr. Obama’s reiteration of his presidential support for homosexual marriage.

“Our journey is not complete,” he said yesterday, “until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. For if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

I also found it noteworthy that Mr. Obama neglected to mention abortion, purposely ignoring the fact that the day after his inauguration is the 40th anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s unholy decision in Roe v. Wade.

It would have been wonderful if the president had noted the anniversary and stood up for the right to life of the unborn the way he stood up for the supposed right of homosexuals to marry each other.

But the president was silent, signaling his continued support for the nation’s abortionists.

Jesus warned, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.”

President Obama said “Lord, Lord” in his Inaugural Address. But he most certainly is not doing the will of the Father.

    The Bible is a Christian’s guide and feelings have no part in what a “Christian” believes. Homosexual acts are references many times in Old and New Testaments. None more pronounced than what God did to Sodom. I read nothing anywhere in Scripture where God repented. The fact that we may know a homosexual or have a homosexual in our family doesn’t change how God feels about it. We all have thieves, adulterer’s, and lairs somewhere in our families, but we don’t make excuses for them. God loves us but He can’t abide our rebellion to Him. If you make excuses for homosexuality, you are still in rebellion. The churches that abide homosexuality are written about in the Bible and it’s NOT good. Don’t bargain away your salvation so you can “feel” kind. Jesus didn’t change the Law, He fulfilled our punishment. Cafeteria or lukewarm Christians will have no part with Jesus. I believe that abortion and homosexuality are the 2 modern touchstones today to make it simple for real Christians to identify the fakes. If you would murder a baby, you have no part in the Kingdom of God. It is a simple identifier anyone can read. God can forgive any repented sin, but you must agree what sin is or you are still at war with God.

    • Once you start stoning children for not working on the Sabbath, or disobeying their parents, or eating shellfish, I’ll believe that following absolutely everything in The Bible is what makes a Christian a real Christian.

      In the mean time, anyone who calls themselves a Christian is a Christian, as far as I’m concerned.

      And as it is, I prefer the ‘fakes’ because they seem to be on the side of less harm.

  2. “So you’re saying that the legislatures and voters in the 39 states that have outlawed homosexuality are all bigots?”

    They have made a bigoted decision. Whether that makes them bigots or not…who can say?

  3. “Not the least because of Mr. Obama’s reiteration of his presidential support for homosexual marriage.”

    The thing is, there are millions of people who agree with the president about gay marriage that also claim the title of Christian.

    You may disagree that they deserve that title. But neither you nor I can tell someone else what they want to be called.

    • Are you suggesting that homosexuality and, by extension, gay marriage are acceptable in the eyes of God?

      • I don’t believe a god exists, so I don’t particularly care. But many Christians I know believe that it is, yes. You’d have to take up why with them, of course.

      • The individuals you know who believe that homosexuality is acceptable in the eyes of God are no more Christian than you.

      • They would disagree with you. And they would claim that you weren’t the real Christian. I don’t particularly care, but I see no reason to believe one group of you over the other.

        There’s fewer things sadder and more pathetic than someone using the Christian religion to justify their bigotry.

      • So you’re saying that the legislatures and voters in the 39 states that have outlawed homosexuality are all bigots?

    • We all are God’s children, he is our father, it’s his job to judge, we may have our Opinion, we all are held accountable for our Action, President Obama is the president of the United States for all people, not just for one special group.

      President Obama is a Christian, he just don’t wear it on his sleeves, the one’s that wear they Christianity on they sleeves this is when you should be worried.

      Today a Minister told President Obama with his gift and Vision he should be a preacher. We have been saying for 4 years that President Obama is anointed by God. In the Bible God said keep your hands and mouth of my Anointed One, we all are Anointed some have special Anointing from God to do his will, President Obama is doing God’s will, that is to lead the people, care for them and this country.

      Caring for the people and this country, the Republicans and conservative right wingers have forgotten the people. They are corrupted, hateful, racist, jealous, Envy and down right evil and have empty souls. This is how evil they are and God don’t like what he’s seeing. Yesterday we watched the inaugural prayer service. The children’s choir sung “Walk by faith, not by sight.” Both the president and first lady cried a little. This is what the spirit do to you.

      There is a song that says “Fix me Jesus, fix me Lord, fix me for a starry crown, fix me Lord for a higher ground.” We as human beings and this country need to be fixed. Read Exodus 32;33:12-23, NUM. 14:19. The story of Moses. While these Republican conservative right wingers and some Democrats are plotting against the president, they just better remember God have President Obama’s back.
