Stunner… Obama Family Attends Church – Disregards Church Rules
The Obama Family attended church for the first time on Sunday to dispel those Muslim rumors.
The New York Daily News reported:
President Obama attended church on Sunday for the first time since April as an increasing number of Americans believe – falsely – that he is Muslim, not Christian.
The entire First Family walked from the White House across Lafayette Square Park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, the quaint house of worship informally known as the Church of the Presidents.
The Obamas sat a few rows back from the altar among about 40 worshipers.
The President and First Lady Michelle Obama, along with their daughters, went up for Communion.
Obama last attended church in Washington on Easter Sunday, April 4.
Of course, the fact that the whole family received Communion shows complete disregard for the Anglican Church rules.
Reader Gini writes:
I’m an Anglican and am enraged Barack Obama and his family received without being confirmed. This is completely against church rules.
Since when did rules mean anything to this bunch in Washington?
UPDATE: Ben Johnson added this on the DC church in the comments:
The Obamas did not violate church discipline, because the church in question is so lax about imposing it. The website for St. John Episcopal Church in Lafayette Park states, “St. John’s welcomes all to receive Holy Communion with us.” Even at the denominational level, The Episcopal Church and the Anglican communion historically does not require confirmation to receive the Eucharist, welcoming instead “all baptized Christians.”
Obama was reportedly baptized by oogady-boogady Reverend Wright at the Trinity UCC.
