This shouldn't be terribly surprising to anyone - the only reason obama went to church was to gain 'street cred' in the Chicago political machine.. when he said he didn't hear what rev wright had to say in those 20 years, I might actually believe him. I doubt he paid any attention at all to this church stuff.... obama is all about obama and nothing else.
Obama to be prayer day no-show
President to sign proclamation, observe privately
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.
For the past eight years, President George W. Bush invited selected Christian and Jewish leaders to the White House East Room, where he typically would give a short speech and several leaders offered prayers.
Obama White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday that the president is simply reverting back to pre-Bush administration practice
Of course obama's lack of understanding of scripture and self centric worldview would put him in a spot to make demands of Israel - demanding they give up their nuclear program. (in exchange for 'peace') RIIIIGHT. Because all of the times Israel has given up things it has resulted in peace. Fools rush in...
EXCLUSIVE: Secret U.S.-Israel nuclear accord in jeopardy
President Obama’s efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons threaten to expose and derail a 40-year-old secret U.S. agreement to shield Israel’s nuclear weapons from international scrutiny, former and current U.S. and Israeli officials and nuclear specialists say.
The issue will likely come to a head when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with Mr. Obama on May 18 in Washington. Mr. Netanyahu is expected to seek assurances from Mr. Obama that he will uphold the U.S. commitment and will not trade Israeli nuclear concessions for Iranian ones.
Assistant Secretary of State Rose Gottemoeller, speaking Tuesday at a U.N. meeting on the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), said Israel should join the treaty, which would require Israel to declare and relinquish its nuclear arsenal.
However, Ms. Gottemoeller endorsed the concept of a nuclear-free Middle East in a 2005 paper that she co-authored, “Universal Compliance: A Strategy for Nuclear Security.”
“Instead of defensively trying to ignore Israels nuclear status, the United States and Israel should proactively call for regional dialogue to specify the conditions necessary to achieve a zone free of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons,” she wrote.
The paper recommends that Israel take steps to disarm in exchange for its neighbors getting rid of chemical and biological weapons programs as well as Iran forgoing uranium enrichment.
I am prayerful that Israel will tell barry to thoughtfully reconsider his foolhardiness... seeing how barry has a barrycentric worldview - I see that having no real impact. It will be interesting to see how long it takes before barry tries to strong arm Israel in to doing things his way and then ultimately selling them out. More interesting will be taking note of the timing of the judgement to come.
No need for concern, it's in God's hands. Psalm 122: 6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Do it often :)
