Obama Chose To Worship On Easter At a Radical Church
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | April 25, 2011 | Joseph Klein

Posted on 04/25/2011 9:43:05 AM PDT by HorowitzianConservative

President Obama and the first family attended Easter services at the Shiloh Baptist Church in Washington, D.C.  As the mainstream press made sure to point out, this church was founded in 1863 by freed slaves.

MSNBC proclaimed:

Obama attends Easter service at historic church: The first family enters Shiloh Baptist Church to a round of applause
It would be such a heart-warming picture of religious devotion except that the mainstream press neglected to mention a couple of things about the church which Obama chose for his Easter worship. The Shiloh Baptist Church hosted an anti-Israel hate fest in 2009 at the same time as an associate minister of the church, Adam Russell Taylor, was  serving as an Obama administration White House Fellow in the Office of Cabinet Affairs, Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs.

Anytime Obama does anything to try and make himself look like a Christian you can count on finding plenty of leftists who have hijacked Christianity to try and beautify their disgusting hatred of America.

When Dear Leader is acting insecure about his radical black base, you know he’s in trouble.

This headline was on Drudge but the link doesn't work-

Obama skips statement on Easter; has commemorated all Muslim holidays...

Nothing new here . . . move along . . . move along . . .

I can no longer view blacks the way I had for most of my life. The rats have overplayed the race card and most blacks apparently fully support this evil lie to benefit themselves. I will rejoice in the day that we rid our nation of these radical blacks who have imposed their own laws on us. May God strike these people down with His mighty hand!

Speaking of striking down with a mighty hand:

This picture was taken last night, on Easter Sunday, after Obama's trip to church.

Just sayin' !

The article lists practically a who’s who of the radical anti-Israel left, black and white. Some church.

I’m sure there will be plenty of publicity about this church and his attendance so let’s see how he or his henchmen react to the criticism! Does he pick a church like this just for the attention?

Probably most of us here grew up and have lived our lives knowing people who only attended church on Easter or Christmas and they weren’t held in very high regard. Same here with obozo! What’s to like? I, for one haven’t found anything yet.

A Christian Church, by it's very definition is opposed to Isreal which is a non-Christian nation. At least that is my impression. How many Christian churches are there in Israel? Did you want the president to attend a Jewish Ceremony on Easter? And, why is it if a prominent person speaks out against the Israeli people, he or she loses a job when, on the other hand, people are always calling the Muslim and the Arabs the most horrible names and many people think that is quite acceptable.

Any ‘church’ that hates Israel doesn’t have anything to do with the church that the Lord God Almighty instituted through Jesus the Christ. They obviously haven’t read the entire Bible. As for Obama, he should read Joel 3:2 and see what happens when he helps DIVIDE God’s land.

Gosh, I’m so glad. For a long time, it seemed that the First Family was uncomfortable with the churches in the DC area. Hence their absence from Sunday services.

But now it seems that Barry and Michelle have found a church just like the one they left in Chicago, where they can be themselves and fit right in. Lord be praised.

Try to find a church that isn’t anti-Israel. I knew the game was up when they started to call Judea “Palestine”.

0bama, how about dropping this silly-assed kabuki dance about Christianity and just go worship at a mosque? You’ll feel better being honest about it.

A Christian Church, by it's very definition is opposed to Isreal which is a non-Christian nation.

Wha? Since when is the "Christian Church" by definition "opposed" to non-Christian nations?

At least that is my impression. How many Christian churches are there in Israel?

There are certainly a few that I went to when I went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Annunciation Basilica in Nazareth, the Church of the Transfiguration on Mount Tabor. Of course there are also several churches in the Old City of Jerusalem, which is currently controlled by Israel.

Israel ALWAYS has been and will be Gods chosen land and people.

Nothing has or will change that.

Gods covenants are irrevocable.

The people he chose in Genesis, are the people he delivers in Revelation.

Paul speaks of gentiles being grafted in. Not being a whole new plant.

In many churches, you will find a dedicated group of leftists who want to push the church in their ideological direction.

17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, were graffed in among them, and with them partaking of the root and fatness of the olive tree;
18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.
19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not highminded, but fear:
21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.
22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

I did not say Christians are opposed to all non-Christian nations as you have accused me of. Christian Churches send missionaries to all corners of the globe and they preach peace and love.

I speaking of definitions and the difference between Christian believing people and the Jewish people. By definition a Christian Church pertains to the followers of Jesus Christ. It is my understanding the Jewish faith does not accept that concept. Therein lies the difference in definition.

well Obama got a photo op out of his attendance....

and check out those toned arms on Michelle...wow’’

We went to church also, like we do every Sunday, but we weren't clapping our hands, instead had our heads bowed in prayer, as we thanked our Lord for giving his life that we might live...

He is Risen...Praise the Lord.

I would recommend that you read Romans 11,
with the illumination of the spirit of YHvH.

Review Paul's explanation of who is grafted into whom.

From what I read gentiles by accepting Jesus (Yeshua) are grafted into the tree of Abraham and now part of Israel. We are the biggest group of Zionist in existence. We are looking for a Jewish messiah, ruling Israel from Mount Zion. It is only those who pervert the word of G_d that make Jews the enemy of Christianity. There are those who belive that those of European origin are actually from the tribe of Ephraim. Now wouldn’t that be a kicker? Shalom.

And, why is it if a prominent person speaks out against the Israeli people, he or she loses a job when, on the other hand, people are always calling the Muslim and the Arabs the most horrible names and many people think that is quite acceptable.

umm, 'cause Muslims and Arabs are horrible and do horrible things?

Dear Zero,

Embrace your muslim faith. Christians are tolerant and you will be free to worship as you choose. Or better yet if you are Christian, travel to Saudi Arabia and worship your Christian faith there. We'll see how tolerant they are.

Most rational people can see clearly the difference between the Jewish faith and Islam in actual daily practice --- today.

If you can't, no explanation is possible.
