I was watching on the news the day before Thanksgiving at the President giving amnesty to two turkeys. OK, an American social tradition to bring a little humor to the holiday. He then proceeds to make two signs of the Cross over the pair, in imitation of Catholic blessing/absolution. If that were a Muslim sign of ritual he was mocking, the White House would be burnt as the consulate in Bengazi for Thanksgiving Day.
Mr. President, you thumb your nose at our teachings by forcing us to provide contraception and abortion in our health insurance, then you mock our rituals by performing them over turkeys. What’s next? This only proves to me and to the rest of the country your lack of respect for, and persecution of, faith at work in this country.
When you took the oath of office four years ago, you promised to “preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States so help me God.” Did you mean the whole constitution, or just what you pick and choose? Remember, this was before God. I suggest you think about this on Jan. 20.
