According to the Salesian news service, [Michelle Obama] told the priest in charge that her husband "always carries with him a photograph with an image of Mary Help of Christians, to whom, those present reported, the first family of the United States has great devotion."
For Catholics, the special prayer to Jesus through his mother Mary for divine aid is about as, well, Catholic as you can get (evidence of a particular supplication to the Virgin dates back to the 3rd century, according to some sources). It is also more evidence for my colleague Jeff Weiss's theory that Obama is actually a closet Catholic and not a crypto-Muslim, as many believe.
There is some swamp land in Florida for sale for those who even remotely believe this news.
Mother Mary to Obama “ Obama ? your a Muslim “ .
You mean Michelle lied??!! Oh I am shocked!!!!
Ok that one was actually funny.
It is permissible to lie- especially to protect your own hide- is it not, for Muslims? Best to cover all bases.
I can say I always carry $5000 on me- but do I? Who can tell?
Sounds impressive tho, doesn’t it- costs nothing- and you’ll probably treat me better if you believe it.
All Trojan horses are designed to look harmless and attractive.
Let’s just say it’s being manufactured for this election campaign for the sheeple’s consumption and to counter those who say Obama is a Muslim.
So he’s a Catholic now?
Rev. Wright is a Catholic?
Closet Christian, In my best African “THAT LIE!!!!”
Pure propaganda, highest quality horse feces. Great for roses!
Ever wonder why muslims like him so much?... ever wonder why we will fail in our defenses against them (purposefully and intentionally)?
Yes, next you know there will be an article that Barry has a black belt in karate.(kids lie about that, right)
“...Obama is actually a closet Catholic...”
Yeah, one who wanted to make it illegal to provide medical care to a baby that survives abortion.
Catholic voters couldn’t be stupid enough to fall for this. Next, the Globe will have pictures of Obamalini fondling a rosary.
I'm sure this saint's life was quite attractive to Obama ~ as it should be to any young lad in similar life's circumstances.
I've always been impressed by the earliest French priests who sought to open up the Indiana wilderness to civilization ~ and that doesn't make anyone a Catholic.
Virgin Mama- safe call, Bammy. Kinda like voting “Present” on contentious issues in the Illinois Legislature. In some ways, Mary’s like Lady Di, Ghandi, or Lincoln, revered and reverenced, nearly mythical and built up into something far greater than than in real life. Mary never asked us for much of anything, never told us to let the dead bury their own dead, never claimed to not bring peace, but a sword. Mary never shouted that she was only way to God, Truth, and Life. Mary’s a gentle, sweet. politician-y choice, Bammy. Well done, young jet-eye.
A good day also for someone in the press to ask Barack Hussein Obama to open out his wallet and prove his wife isn't the liar some of us (myself included) think she is. Speaking of "Lepanto", perhaps instead of a Ground Zero mosque, there should be a Lepanto Square on that "Park51" property.
Anyone (Catholic or not) who believes Obama is a secret Catholic, based only on a trinket he supposedly carries in his pocket, deserves to be laughed out of the voting booth (and if they're Catholic, laughed out of the confessional booth).
He also has a monkey god good luck charm in his pocket. Maybe he’s a closet Hindu.
