Notes from Obama's Easter Service
Weekly Standard ^ | Mar 31, 2013 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 03/31/2013 10:55:33 AM PDT by artichokegrower

President Obama and his family this morning went to Easter Sunday services at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. Here are notes on the Easter service from the pool reporter, which included this part, "It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border":

So-called Progressives should be called Oppressives cuz that’s what they are. Ironically, they are the one’s stuck in the past. Accuse others of what you’re doing. Blah, blah, blah....

We were blessed to go to a Christian church where Jesus’s resurrection was celebrated and Holy Communion was given. It didn’t resemble whatever this service was that the Obamas attended at all.

Back to a home where children have a mom and dad. Back where people could live on one salary. Back where the Constitution meant what it said. Back where the government wasn't stuffing regulations down your throat. Back where people could expect a reasonable sense of decency. Back where the government debt wasn't totally out of control. Back where school didn't like kids to chew gum. Oh yeah, going back is such a chilling thought. Blacks don't belong in the back of the bus, but what has happened to their culture is criminal. Women can now say they are out of the kitchen because they have to work in order to put food on the table. Now business women can pine for the children they never had. Now America can be so proud of what the liberals have created that the whole world hates us for our debauchery. Now we can be proud to have an American like Obama who has no record of himself and yet requires registration for every facet of our lives, kind of like Obamacare. I could go on and on but I'm preaching to the choir.

The Lord died for these people, yet they stand at the pulpit preaching hatred.

They believe themselves better than God, and they put their words into His mouth. These are not pastors, they are devils disciples.

I was confused.

so the part in BOLD is what the pool reporter thought the Pastor was saying? The reporter thought the part about ‘ going back: was the paster saying it was better “ back then”
Wow how stupid was that reporter? The point wasn’t that it would be better to go back.

Who was that poll reporter anyway? The article didn’t say

If i read the article right it was NOT the Pastor saying we should go back to when blacks were kept in the back
it was the Pool reporter interpreting . or MIS interpreting the intent of the pastir.

The article isn’t well written and is confusing

Easter without resurrection.

Easter as just another prop for radical posturing.

What “captains of the religious right” are telling blacks to get to the back of the bus?

A straw man offered by a pathological liar dressed in the costume of a clergyman. Fool.

When I think of Rev. Wright, I wonder. He spoke about being in the back of the bus.

The reporter more than likely used his own words to convey the same message.

The Rev. Luis León, the Episcopal priest who was chosen to replace Louie Giglio of Passion City Church for President Barack Obama's benediction on Inauguration Day, said in his prayer that both gay and straight people were created in God's image.

"It drives me crazy when the captains of the religious right are always calling us back ... for blacks to be back in the back of the bus ... for women to be back in the kitchen ... for immigrants to be back on their side of the border"

Anyone who can't tell the race of the reporter who wrote those words, hasn't been paying attention these past few years. Black "reporters" are unafraid to voice their racist opinions in their stories. That is the ultimate end of electing the first "post-racialist" President.

I’d be surprised if they were baptized so far. They’re not Episcopal. This church is just their “show” church for the photo ops of Easter and Christmas. AFAIK we don’t know where Barack was baptized (if ever) either.

Notes are flawed.

We don’t call for blacks to be at the back of the bus, we’ve been calling for them to clean themselves up, have regular families again, get off the government dole, work, and stop playing the race card everytime something doesn’t go their way.

We don’t call for women to be back in the kitchen, but we aren’t the ones who told them being there was worthless and being a stay at home mom isn’t important, being a parent to kids instead of working all day, paying for childcare with most of her salary, and coming home tired with dad and hardly having any time to be a parent.

We don’t call for all immigrants to get back on their side of the border, just the ones who think they can violate our immigration laws, and other laws once they are here, and also as a people have explicit plans to take over part of our country and call it “Aztlan”. We don’t go into their countries violating their immigration laws, and we know what they do to people who do violate their laws, they beat them up, take their stuff, and deport their butts deep back into their home countries. I say we ought to treat them as well as they treat illegal immigrants in their own countries. Fair is fair.

Funfan....just pray for OBama the way Tevye prayed for the Czar. “Rabbi, is there a blessing for the czar?” “A blessing for the czar, why of course: May God bless and keep the czar....far away from us!”

You mean a black racist political rally with hymns? Featuring a rich black guy watching over black people with huge unemployment rates and doing nothing but destroying the economy? Whose "family" spent the week skiing (what's that?) with a bunch of rich white people while he stayed back home hanging out with his "special friend" Reggie Love? Who takes huge donations from guilty rich "progressive" white people who STILL don't live anywhere near any black people and who don't REALLY want to even go skiing with them? And who doesn't really think anything in Christianity is nearly as beautiful as the Muslim call to prayer? And who can't find a church to go to yet? That the guy?

“Ben Carson he is not!”

Oh, how he only *wishes* he were Ben Carson! He did compliment Dr. Carson the day of Carson’s speech; after he’d acted like a rude, funny clown during the speech. - Dr. Carson has apparently been designated as an Alinsky “target”; but Obama cannot relate as this Christian man lives in a totally different Kingdom than Alinsky did, or Obama currently does.
