An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I’m sure most folks have heard the uproar about the Obama’s not wanting to put up the Nativity in the East Room of the White House.
President Obama and the First Family were planning a “non-religious Christmas,” according to Social Secretary Desiree Rogers. Ms. Rogers reportedly told a gathering of former social secretaries that the Obamas did not intend on putting the Nativity scene on display – a longtime East Room tradition.
I guess he showed his true colors on this one, didn’t he. Gee, I wonder which world leaders was he bowing to this time? I seriously doubt it was the Pope. But, after some serious consideration, and more than just a bit of outrage, it seems the ol’ poser in chief, and clan, have relented.
From the ‘First Lady’s” (?) office:
“It has been a part of White House Christmas decorations in the past, it is on display in the East Room for all to enjoy and it will continue to be a part of White House Christmas decorations moving forward.”
How nice of them to include the REASON for this Season!
Bill Donohue, president of the Catholic League, accused the president of trying to “neuter” Christmas.
“Unlike almost all Americans—including atheists—the Obamas do not give their children Christmas gifts. We know this because Barack bragged about this last year to People magazine. So it should come as no big surprise that he and his wife would like to neuter Christmas in the White House. That’s their natural step—to ban the public display of Christian symbols. Have any doubts? Last April, Georgetown University was ordered to put a drape over the name of Jesus as a condition of the president speaking there.
Well, that’s what liberals do! They fight hard to remove any reference and symbols to our JUDEO/CHRISTIAN history. Are there no Christian teachings in that church he sat in for 20 years? Did he learn nothing about REAL faith? Or was it just a “church” filled with hatred of all things of honor and tradition? Sermons filled with bitterness and racism? He has professed to be a Christian. I’ve seen no indication of this whatsoever.
I honestly don’t care if the Obama’s give presents to their kids or not. That’s their choice. Kids these days seem to expect their parents to go into hock just to GIVE them every little thing their heart desires, which, to me, has totally destroyed the real meaning of the “season of giving”.
At this time of the year, I EXPECT our so called POTUS to display the symbols of our religious foundations, which, by the way, do NOT include a star and crescent!
I’ve no doubt if we had a Jewish president, there would have been no problem with continuing the traditions, long held, by previous administrations, so why wouldn’t a Muslim one? Just sayin’.
Oh, and to my Jewish friends, an early……
