This from the guy who admits he doesn’t go to church and asked God to bless Planned Parenthood. You know. The place that butchers and chops up babies and sells their body parts.
One thousand Sundays under Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Obama learned nothing about biblical Christianity.
President Obama lit the White House Christmas tree for his very last time Thursday evening in Washington. And as is customary, he delivered a Christmas speech rooted in “reflection and perspective” for the coming celebration of Jesus’s birth.
More specifically, Obama wanted to focus on the central message that the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes brought to Earth those many years ago, which may not be exactly as you remember from Sunday school class:
“Along with celebrations like these, the holidays also offer us a time for reflection and perspective. And over these next few weeks as we celebrate the birth of our savior, as we retell the story of weary travelers, a star, shepherds, magi, I hope that we also focus ourselves on the message that this child brought to this Earth some 2,000 years ago. A message that says we have to be our brothers’ keepers, our sisters’ keepers. That we have to reach out to each other. To forgive each other. To let the light of our good deeds shine for all. To care for the sick, and the hungry, and the downtrodden. And, of course, to love one another, even our enemies, and to treat one another how we would want to be treated ourselves.”
Continuing, Obama said he sees that message playing out among “immigrants and refugees.” And it’s a message that isn’t isolated to Christians only but also for Jewish Americans, Muslim Americans, non-believers, and Americans from all backgrounds, and that message is “unity, decency, and hope.”
But enough about Jesus! Obama didn’t waste the opportunity to tout his legacy, and when he did, it brought a round of thunderous applause from the audience. After all, Obama is more popular than that other Savior.
