Because of His Great Deal of Respect for Places of Worship… Obama Skips Church
No, No, No… Not, God Bless America… God-D*** America.
I think we have now heard it all…
Barack Obama is skipping church to workout because of his great respect for places of worship.
Of course, this new found respect for God’s house was not so evident at his former place of worship:
Maybe he just hasn’t found a pastor he can relate to?
The Politico reported:
President-elect Barack Obama has yet to attend church services since winning the White House earlier this month, a departure from the example of his two immediate predecessors.
On the three Sundays since his election, Obama has instead used his free time to get in workouts at a Chicago gym.
Asked about the president-elect’s decision to not attend church, a transition aide noted that the Obamas valued their faith experience in Chicago but were concerned about the impact their large retinue may have on other parishioners.
“Because they have a great deal of respect for places of worship, they do not want to draw unwelcome or inappropriate attention to a church not used to the attention their attendance would draw,” said the aide.
Hopefully the Obamas will find someone who teaches black liberation theology when they move into their new home.
