US president Barack Hussein Obama attended church services with the First family this morning.
This news is significant because Obama hasn’t attended a church regularly since he took office in January, 2009.
Mind you, the church is directly across the street from the White House, yet Obama and his family attended services there for only the first time today.
No doubt, this publicity stunt was staged today as a result of growing public sentiment that Barack Obama is an undercover Muslim.
According to Drudgereport.com:
The first family left the White House on foot this morning for the 9am choral holy eucharist service and sermon at St John’s Church Lafayette Square.
The Obamas walked out of the residence at 8.49am and crossed the park to the nearby Episcopal church.
The president was wearing a dark suit and held Sasha Obama’s hand. She was wearing a blue dress and cream cardigan. Michelle and Malia Obama were wearing cream-colored dresses.
Lafayette Park and Pennsylvania Avenue in front of White House were closed to the public.
For those of you who say it is complicated for the Obamas to attend a church service — I guess Obama proved you wrong!
The Obamas were members of the controversial Rev. Wright’s church in Chicago for many years. Wright’s church has strong ties to the Minister Farakhan who was (and still is) a neighbor of Obama’s. Other church goers don’t recall Obama attending regular services at Wright’s church either.
Drudge didn’t indicate what the service was about this morning, but today’s word is Luke 16:1-13, which ends ‘You cannot serve God and wealth.’
