And so says Obama. Obama's little boy Gibbs (no relation to Douglas V thank God) said that Obama prays every day already. I wonder what that meant? Seeing that Obama Hates Jesus anyway, this National Day of Prayer issue shouldn't really be of any great surprise. Should it?
When you click the link provided above, you will view pictures of the area Obama's goons had covered up. Viewing the picture to the left, it seems as though Obama could not be seen with the symbology of Jesus over his head giving the impression that NOTHING or ANYONE can be seen on a higher plane than he. Kind of spooky if you ask me or, even if you don't ask me.
Douglas V Gibbs has a piece entitled, "Obama's White House Rejects National Day of Prayer" and it is another must read. What I am wondering is why are the Democrats so afraid of the very name of Jesus? Why, at every opportunity, do they try to subjugate the masses to go along with abasing the Christian Faith? Is it because Christianity is the only Faith that demands and requires personal responsibility?
President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance. [...]
WHITE HOUSE - On Thursday, for the first time in nine years, there won't be a White House ceremony in observance of the National Day of Prayer.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says President Barack Obama will pray privately as he does every day, but his only public acknowledgement will be to issue a White House proclamation.
Republican Congressman Randy Forbes, co-chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, says a proclamation urging Americans to pray would be more meaningful if the president set a public example. Forbes calls it a missed opportunity, but says, "Hopefully we'll have millions of people around the country that will make up for the void we see at the White House on the National Day of Prayer." [...]
Instead, Obama signed a proclamation and it reminds me of the following: Matthew 10:33 - But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
Throughout our Nation's history, Americans have come together in moments of great challenge and uncertainty to humble themselves in prayer. In 1775, as the Continental Congress began the task of forging a new Nation, colonists were asked to observe a day of quiet humiliation and prayer.
Almost a century later, as the flames of the Civil War burned from north to south, President Lincoln and the Congress once again asked the American people to pray as the fate of their Nation hung in the balance.
It is in that spirit of unity and reflection that we once again designate the first Thursday in May as the National Day of Prayer.
Let us remember those who came before us, and let us each give thanks for the courage and compassion shown by so many in this country and around the world.
On this day of unity and prayer, let us also honor the service and sacrifice of the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.
We celebrate their commitment to uphold our highest ideals, and we recognize that it is because of them that we continue to live in a Nation where people of all faiths can worship or not worship according to the dictates of their conscience.
Let us also use this day to come together in a moment of peace and goodwill. Our world grows smaller by the day, and our varied beliefs can bring us together to feed the hungry and comfort the afflicted; to make peace where there is strife; and to lift up those who have fallen on hard times.
As we observe this day of prayer, we remember the one law that binds all great religions together: the Golden Rule, and its call to love one another; to understand one another; and to treat with dignity and respect those with whom we share a brief moment on this Earth.
The Congress, by Public Law 100-307, as amended, has called on the President to issue each year a proclamation designating the first Thursday in May as a "National Day of Prayer."
NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 7, 2009, as a National Day of Prayer. I call upon Americans to pray in thanksgiving for our freedoms and blessings and to ask for God's continued guidance, grace and protection for this land that we love.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this seventh day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-third.
He got the Golden Rule wrong. Figures. Kind of weird that yesterday, being an "odd day" that the National Day of Prayer is not recognized nationally. Odd man out, odd day, odd world. Today is an "odd day" because all of the numbers in yesterday's date were all end in odd numbers: 05.07.09.
I guess he bowed to pressure and issued a caveat.
