Laughable…if it weren’t so sad. “Faith Moments?” Excuse me, US News & World Report. What in the world were you thinking? Ten “most important faith moments”? What do you mean by “most important” and what exactly is a “faith moment?”
Evidently their definition of “important” and “faith” are radically different from mine. Having read the USN&WR’s article, I struggled to see their point.
Then I read Chuck Norris’ article and I was even more confused with US News…and I agree with Chuck. USNews exposed more than they realized by saying, “Barak Obama has embraced faith in a more visible way than any other president in recent memory.”
Ok…their “recent memory” has to be incredibly short or non existent. Unless “encouraging Muslim relations and Islam around the world” is Obama’s claim to fame, which was cited twice in this article. How about his support of the abortion cause. Allowing invocations at public events is a “faith moment?” Subsidizing Mexico’s abortions with our federal funds is a “faith moment?” Would somebody please explain this to me.
What is strikingly absent from the US News’ article is the President’s search for more Muslim employees in the White House, or his proposed limitations of tax deductions for charitable giving, or his insistence that Georgetown University cover the symbols of Jesus’ name when he spoke there.
“Faith moments…” Oh, I forgot…VP Biden did participate in an Ash Wednesday Lenten church service. Does that count? It must…they included it.
I started by saying this is “laughable.” I’m sorry, I take that back. It is not…it is sad, deceitful, and disingenuous, at best. Perhaps the President would like to support the idea that he has “faith moments” by attending a “National Day of Prayer” event somewhere today… Wait, I did read that he would not be doing that, but would be taking time to “pray, privately, on his own.” All I can say here is that he’d best make good on that comment…he’s going to need all the prayer he can get.
“Faith Moments”…I think I’ll go have one!
