from today's (Nov 19) "End of Day" report by Campaign for Working Families:
Obama And God
Today is the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. Filmmaker Ken Burns videotaped 61 noted Americans reading the famous words. One of them of course was President Obama, who you can watch here http://http://www.wmal.com/common/page.php?pt=WATCH%3A+President+Obama+Leaves+Out+An+Important+Word+In+His+Reading+Of+The+Gettysburg+Address+-+God&id=55903&is_corp=0
. You will notice that the President does something in his recitation that no one else does. At the point in the speech when Lincoln said, “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom,” Obama leaves out “under God.”
This isn’t the first time Obama has given God the boot. Repeatedly in the early years of his presidency, Obama did a similar edit of another key historical U.S. document, The Declaration of Independence, leaving out “endowed by their Creator,” from the second paragraph. I am guessing that God is not amused.
<end quote>Can someone, anyone PLEASE explain to me what this man is thinking? Is he so opposed to anything resembling religion that he can't even read an historical quote without "editing" it???
SIGH.... Stepping off my soapbox now....
