Did Obama skip church on Christmas?
Beltway Confidential -- Washington Examiner ^ | 12-26-12 | Charlie Spiering

Did the Obama family skip church services this Christmas?

The White House readout of the President’s activities on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day makes no mention of church services – although the President and the First Lady made time to visit service members of the United States Military at the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii.

Below is the text of the White House release to the press:

Last night, the President made holiday telephone calls to US service members, then sat down with his family for Christmas Eve dinner.

This morning, the family gathered around 8AM to open their Christmas gifts. They then ate breakfast and sang carols.

This afternoon, the President and the First Lady traveled to the Marine Base to visit with servicemembers and their families.

In the evening, the First Family and friends will enjoy dinner at their home.

The Obama family attended Church on Christmas during their Hawaii vacation in 2011 and 2010 – attending services at the chapel at the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii. The family made headlines in 2009, when they attended no religious services.

Obama is expected to leave tonight to return to Washington D.C., while his family remains in Hawaii.

I’m glad he doesn’t make a show of going to a Christian church. He is not a Christian. He hates Christianity.

hussein didn’t “skip” church. Now that the election is over he no longer has to pretend he is some sort of Christian.
The kenyan muslim can do what he wants now,

No wonder USMC hate assignments to Hawaii. Mandatory formations on Christmas Day to provide a photo op. Despicable!

Church? What church? You don't need no church to celebrate Kwanzaa.

Black Liberation Theology is a religion of hatred toward the white man which is disguised as “Christianity” but has little to do with it. Obama has never been a “real” Christian

Christmas is just a secular holiday to some people....no religious signifigance at all! Without a political motivation, they would have no reason to attend church or otherwise recognize the reason for the season.

My tabby cat is more Christian than the Obama family. They believe in one thing at Christmas....living large on the “shtruggliing” taxpayers of America.

After the cliff it will be:(Sung to the tune “Jingle Bells”)

Dashing through the snow in my rusty Chevrolet.
Down the road I go, sliding all the way.
I need new piston rings. I need some new snow tires.
My car is held together by a piece of chicken wire!

Oh, rust and smoke, the heater’s broke, the door just blew away.
I light a match to see the dash and then I start to pray-ay.
The frame is bent, the muffler went, the radio’s okay.
Oh, what fun it is to drive this rusty Chevrolet!
Thanks Obozo for nothing!

“”No birthday or Christmas presents FROM MOM AND DAD, who spend “hundreds” on birthday slumber parties and, as Barack puts it, “want to teach some limits.” Says Michelle: “Malia says, ‘I know there is a Santa because there’s no way you’d buy me all that stuff.””

SO SANTA gives them all their presents!! I guess the gifts stop when they stop believing in Santa. Shouldn’t that have happened already?

“They then ate breakfast and sang carols.”

“”What carols, I wonder?””

“Sympathy for the Devil”
