President vague on religion
I am responding to the letter written by Patricia Witt on First Amendment Rights. She stated that Mr. Obama is a devout Christian. I’m not sure where she got that idea, but I wanted to state some facts concerning that statement.
The National Day of Prayer, first designated by
President Truman and celebrated by a service in
the White House by President George Bush every
first Thursday in May was canceled by Obama. He
listened to the same complaints that Bush did, but gave in when Bush didn’t. Instead of going to church as most Christians do, he spends his weekends at the golf course.
And just to confuse the issue further, Obama held
an iftar dinner, the meal that breaks the dawn-to-dusk fast for Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan, in the White House State Dining Room. I am not saying that he is Muslim. I think he is on the subject of religion as he is on other important personal information: vague.
I am a Christian and like most Christians, I honor
the National Day of Prayer. I go to church. I will
proclaim clearly what and who I believe. Obama
