First comes this story from TIME. In it the story said
Now, in an unexpected move, Obama has told White House aides that instead of joining a congregation in Washington, D.C., he will follow in George W. Bush‘s footsteps and make his primary place of worship Evergreen Chapel, the nondenominational church at Camp David.
Of course he would choose a nondenominational church, I thought. He couldn’t appear to value one group over another, even when it comes to matters of faith.
TIME then went on to throw in this hilarious line
A number of factors drove the decision – financial, political, personal – but chief among them was the desire to worship without being on display.
HA HA HA. I doubt Obama was worried about being on display. How anyone can claim that this media whore wants to shun attention is beyond me. The media grants us these periodical reminders of just how delusional they are.
In any event it was a step up from not belonging to a church at all. Then came this
The White House said Monday that President Barack Obama continues “to look for a church home,” and said a magazine report that he has stopped is erroneous.
White House deputy press secretary Jen Psaki said by e-mail: “The president and first family continue to look for a church home. They have enjoyed worshiping at Camp David and several other congregations over the months, and will choose a church at the time that is best for their family.”
So, yeah forget all that other stuff. I’m not sure if he was scared at the thought of choosing any place of worship over another like the boyfriend who freaks out and regrets giving her that diamond after 30 seconds or whether it was the fact that TIME pointed out W. was there first that has him running.
In either event, it sure is reassuring to know that our Spineless Leader isn’t so quaint and non-progressive as to favor one group over another. God Bless America.
