Posted on 04/06/2010 7:41:39 PM PDT by NoCmpromiz
President Obama bared his soul before a cross section of Christian leaders at a White House Easter breakfast on Tuesday (April 6), where he spoke publicly of his faith in redemption through Jesus in his most personal terms since becoming president.
"We are awed by the grace he showed even to those who would have killed him," Obama said, pausing occasionally to glance at written notes. "We are thankful for the sacrifice he gave for the sins of humanity. And we glory in the promise of redemption in the resurrection."
Obama said the Easter breakfast, along with a recent Passover Seder and a Ramadan dinner last fall, was part of his pledge to make the White House "a place where all people would feel welcome." Presidential aides also said it gave Obama the opportunity to thank Christian leaders for their community service.
"For those who are wondering or have doubts about whether he is authentically Christian, I think today's message puts all doubts to rest," said the Rev. Kirbyjon Caldwell, another Houston megachurch pastor who attended Tuesday's breakfast.
Obama's father was a Kenyan Muslim-turned-atheist, his mother an agnostic, and his Indonesian stepfather an unorthodox Muslim. Caldwell, who is close to Obama and his predecessor, President George W. Bush, said he is galled by the number of Americans -- one in 10 according to a 2009 poll -- who refuse to believe Obama is Christian.
Caldwell was also one of about 20 black clergy -- from denominational heads to pastors who knew Obama when he was a community organizer in Chicago -- who gathered with the president privately before the breakfast.

One of his handlers must sense the need for damage control... Pay attention to his actions, not his words.
why does it sound like he was comparing himself and his “troubles” to Jesus Christ?????!!
EASTER breakfast on TUESDAY?
Except for certain heads of state...
(Where's the barf alert?)
Yeah, he “bared his soul” but refuses to bare his birth certificate (or about a dozen other key documents in his life.)
>>”We are awed by the grace he showed even to those who would have killed him,” Obama said, pausing occasionally to glance at written notes<<
“Of course, I mean ummm... Heysoos umm... (looks) Krist.. who, ummm (looks) passed over the doors of those who hid the Easter Eggs on their... ummm (looks) door area... umm thingy.”
How can one bare what one does not have?
Did he say that Jesus was the Son of God? The he died for our sins and rose from dead on the third day?
Or that Jesus was a “great prophet”?
Well, he is, in his humble opinion, the Messiah... I see that it is still about him, no matter what he tries to portray. Also noted that the blog post mentioned that he looked at notes. Wonder if TOTUS is broken?
Wonder if he has scars in his hands and feet. (We have all seen the picture of the scar in his head...)
I think that's where they inserted the program chip...
Maybe you think his claim of being a Christian is a large crock of male bovine feces because it IS!
We have video of him giving a speech to a large Muslim audience somewhere in the Middle East and clearly stating that he is a MUSLIM.
Maybe his recent remarks were made because he feels Rev. Manning breathing down his neck. Is he trying to circle the wagons with some gullible preachers?
This is a joke, right?
Ask the Arsehole if as a Wonderful Christian, he is intellegent enough to recite the “LORD’S PRAYER” without a Teleprompter? We know from TIME Magazine, the ARSE is able to recitethe Muslim Call to Evening Prayer “In Perfect Arabic as the Most beautiful Sound in the Universe!” quoting OBOZO in TIME MAGAZINE!
Abu has a soul??
Because he’s the 0bamassiah!
Obama practicing Al-Taqiyaa again.
Here's more of what was reported:
...the breakfast also provided a platform for Obama to speak openly about his Christian faith, even as a small but stubborn minority of Americans believe he is Muslim.
Obama did not directly address those doubts on Tuesday, but said: "as Christians, we believe that redemption can be delivered -- by faith in Jesus Christ. And the possibility of redemption can make straight the crookedness of a character; make whole the incompleteness of a soul."
The president also said that of all the Gospel stories, Jesus' last words on the cross -- "Father, into your hands I commit my spirit" -- especially resonate with him during the Easter season. "These words were spoken by our Lord and savior, but they can just as truly be spoken by every one of us here today," Obama said.
Obama’s soul - there’s no “there” there, methinks.
Well, I may hate his politics and what he’s trying to do to the country, but if he’s talking about Christ dying for sins and redemption then I can’t speak against his being a Christian.
That doesn’t mean I don’t want him out of office. And it does mean that he should know better how to treat Israel.
Obammy boy could not celebrate Easter on the traditional Sunday. Tuesday was not bad,— he had to recognize all his personal favorite religions first, which took up most of Monday, what with all the bowing and scraping toward Mecca and the customary cursing of whitey which took up most of the Sabbath.
