You’ve probably received the same e-mail I got, warning that Obama really is a Muslim.
It is true that the Trinity United Church of Christ that Obama attended for 20 years is really more black nationalist than Christian. It is also true that, in an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in September, 2008, Obama made that curious mistake referring to “my Muslim faith.” Although he quickly corrected himself, one can’t help but wonder if the verbal gaffe was a Freudian slip.
Whatever. This much I do know: Unless one is ill, even nominal Christians who never attend weekly church services go to church at Christmas! By that yardstick, Obama is NOT a Christian.
NO CHURCHGOING CHRISTMAS FOR THE FIRST FAMILY
…there’s one common Christmas practice not on the First Family’s schedule: a visit to Christmas Eve church services.
Church, in fact, has been a surprisingly tough issue for the Obamas. They resigned their membership with Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in 2008 after Obama renounced the church’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. And while the First Family intended to find a local church to attend when they moved to Washington, concerns about crowds and displacing regular worshippers has prevented them from finding a new religious home during their first year here.
The Obamas have attended Sunday services in Washington three times this year — once at the predominantly African-American 19th Street Baptist Church, and twice at St. John’s Episcopal Church across Lafayette Square from the White House….
The Obamas have celebrated Christmas in Hawaii, where the President grew up, nearly every year since the girls were born. But while Obama can still visit his favorite shaved ice joint and body-surfing spots, he doesn’t have a childhood church home to attend. His mother wasn’t a churchgoer, and Obama writes in “Dreams of My Father” that his grandparents took him to church infrequently.
