Barack Obama’s open mockery
of the Sign of the Cross

Canada Free Press, by Judi McLeod

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 11/22/2012 10:05:47 AM

‘Father Barack Obama‘ mocked the Sign of the Cross at the White House yesterday. It was an open mockery of the Christian prayer that is accompanied by the immortal words used by peasants and kings over the centuries: “In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”. Obama, who is right-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does. Obama’s left-handed sign of the cross was made over a gobbling turkey during the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation Ceremony,

Comments:
While 0bama is not a true Christian, his outright public blasphemy of a Catholic symbol will not sit well with God for our Nation. Remember, as our elected leader, 0bama may incite the wrath of God on US like a nuclear explosion. Whoever is in the blast zone is effected.

Makes you wonder what Christmas "surprise´´ he has for US true believers? BTW, don´t think that 0bama mentioned God in Thanksgiving "message" today.

I thought he is left handed. Maybe I just think of him as left everything.

I hope my fellow Christians don´t attack a US Embassy in retaliation. Or the Amish. You never know who could be offended.

Please..."Catholics" love this guy! He provides "free stuff" and that makes them feel more Catholic because they voted for him. As a Catholic, I say you can´t take them seriously...it´s all Nunsense...and Sandra Fluke.

Wait a minute... What makes anyone think obama has the first clue about his actions?

I saw the video of our "Home Boy" Prez pardoning those turkeys. No, he didn´t pardon Rice and Petraeus, he pardoned real turkeys.

In the video he went to bless the turkeys, pretending he was The Pope. Unfortunately, half-way through the blessing he had to look to his left to see how to finish the blessing. He could not even pretend to be The Pope without "off-screen" instructions.

He is the most clueless buffoon to ever be President of the USA, if you watch his actions.

Quite a few non-Catholics that I know use their left hands to make the sign of the Cross and I know for a fact that they aren´t Muslim. I don´t like him any better than any one else here, but I refuse to give him so much importance in my life. He´s just an ignorant fool and his daughters still think he´s funny.

0bama is left-handed, but that´s still no excuse. Probably about 10% of priests are left-handed and they use their right hand to make the sign of the cross.

What a clueless putz.

The pardon for the turkey didn´t last long. The turkey got sick immediately after being around obama and his off-springs and it is reported the turkey had to be euthanized. One wonders what type of illness he might be the "carrier".
This definitely proves: His Word or Promises Don´t Carry any Substance. Always Subject to Change!

What a fool! Obama may think himself above his fellow men but if you mock THE creator you are on very shaky ground...wonder if he ever heard of inoperable brain cancers or a paralizing stroke that leaves you alive but totally immoble...GOD has many ways to deal with those who ignore HIS first Commandment...

The right hand left hand thing doesn´t bother me, it´s just the fact that he used a comical ceremony to express his atheistic contempt for the Catholic faith. You can just imagine what he says in private.

I´ve been saying this since the beginning. The man is the Anti-Christ, the false Anti-Christ came first, Osama bin Laden, a lot of people thought he was the Anti-Christ, but as it is to be it turns out he was the false one followed by the REAL DEAL. I am not a hyper Christian or anything like that, but I am firm in my beliefs and this is one of them. It usually falls on deaf ears.

the ´´euthanized´´ turkey was last year´s - no one would say where he ended up, I´d bet on a platter.

I saw the vid of the presidential turkey pardon. When he made the sign of the cross over the birds I waited a few beats for lightning. At first I wanted to believe he was just ignorant. Then reality took my brain back under control and I realized that he´s mocking. Without a doubt...

Being left handed is irrelevant. One NEVER makes the sign of the cross w one´s left. Biblical admonitions about the right hand of God and the sign of sonship and blessedness ( ring olaced on right hand of orodigal son ) etc are the basis for this. Ø mocks Orthodox and Catholic traditins. "Be ye not deceived , for the Lord God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. ". He who has big jug ears to hear, let him hear. Or choose not to. It s all up to the Ø.

This Romney-voting Catholic is not offended by this. Barry´s just stupid. I´m more offended by his deliberate mockery of faith-based institutions being forced by Obamacare to provide abortion and contraceptives in their insurance policies.

The sad reality is that in any given Mass you can find a poorly catecheted young adult who makes the sign of the cross with his left hand. And no one corrects him.

#18: Yes, he´s left handed and totally ignorant. And I agree with you with one question.

The question is: why did he even bother to do a sign of the cross? Is that part of the ritual of the pardon? I am Episcopalian but was raised in different protestant denominations. I still have a hard time remembering to make the sign in church. Why did he make a sign that has nothing to do with the occasion or the denomination he practices? I still think it was a form of mockery, but not the left-handed part. That was just a physical inclination.

I´m not offended by it. Obama was trying to be funny like an awkward adolescent. Whenever he tries to be funny he always ends up looking like an idiot. So the USA is going to have this perpetual adolescent as president for another four years. Oh, how I wish Romney had won! It would have been so nice to have an adult as president in January!

woke up to realize that I am bourgeois neither republican nor democrat. Those parties have wasted our treasure. Cashflow, Goods and services at competitive rates are my heartfelt belief. The communist is out to wipe us from the earth. I want believe that Obama isn´t one of those but a friend like Clinton was, as Eisenhower, Kennedy and Reagan were. Belief in Bush has been to our detriment. Why, George? Why? Disaster looms but I pray constantly for Divine aid. No more war or welfare. We want to enjoy the fruits of our labors, again.

The president has pardon power, enshrined in the U.S. constitution. That power is not religiously related. making the sign of the cross is offensive under those circumstances with the turkeys - something a h.s. punk would do.
And - I was raised a Catholic, and I am left handed. And no one makes the sign of the cross with the left hand, unless they do not have a right hand.

President Zero likes to do that subtle mocking of Christianity. His muslim upbringing is the source of that mocking.

He wasn´t making the sign of the cross. He was giving a blessing to the turkey. In the traditional sign of the cross, I touch my forehead with my right hand (for The Father), my heart (for The Son) and myself -- both shoulders for the Holy Spirit and to complete the cross. I´ve never seen anyone but a priest or deacon give the blessing to someone or something else. Makes no sense to me (a Catholic who can´t stand the sight of him). BTW, we have lots of lots of CINO´s in the Catholic faith. And lots of cafeteria Catholics too. A true practicing Catholic could never vote for him.

He makes the sign of the cross over the turkey and it gets so sick it has to be put down? I think God or his angels are trying to tell us something in these little signs as I do not believe in coincedence. The presidential seal fell off the podium, the rodent ran across in front of the podium, a fly landed on his face during an interview, these are ones that come to mind, and now the turkey is dead after a blessing. Beezelbub.

Just an observation, but the Moslems consider the left hand to be the "unclean" hand. They use the left to clean their backsides after defecating...

So, using the left is insult. Hence, the reason they take off the right hand of a thief.

I think 0bama knew exactly what he was doing. And, all his Moslem brothers are howling in delight.

46, Eastern Orthodox make e sign of the cross e original way. We predate the roman church by 1000 years. Roman church changed the form of making the cross to left to Ruth from original right shoulder to left. And we have never stopped holding thumb and first two fingers together to symbolize the Holy Trinity, w last 2 fingers down for the Divine and human Natures of Christ. Why did Romans change to open hand and left to right ? May seem silly to some, but we have kept the faith unchanged for 2000 years. Dogma and practice. Christ is timeless for Orthodox Christians and His message is even more relevant and needed today than ever before Changing the liturgy and dogma to suit modern times for our convenience is what has led to those of millions of adherents.

To make the sign of the Cross "humorously" IS mocking. There was no reason for a nonreligious person to "bless" the turkey; the gesture is totally inappropriate and could only be intended to mock, and using the left hand only made it more so. It´s just more evidence of his juvenile uncouthness, like giving people the finger. He´s a disgrace to the office of President.

I bet he secretly used his prayer rug, arse in the air, holding a koran, before he showed up for the ceremony. Too bad the custom wasn´t a pig pardon. I´d have liked to see if he showed up at all.

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces.

Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

Washington - The Obama administration is putting off its decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline, likely until after the November elections, by extending its review of the controversial project indefinitely. In a surprise announcement Friday as Washington was winding down for Easter, the State Department said federal agencies will have more time to weigh in on the politically fraught decision — but declined to say how much longer. Officials said the decision will have to wait for the dust to settle in Nebraska, where a judge in February overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline´s path through the state.

Washington - The National Archives on Friday released its largest batch yet of previously withheld documents from the Clinton administration, with topics including the conflicts in Somalia and Rwanda, Middle East peace negotiations, the Oklahoma City bombing and public figures as varied as Richard M. Nixon and Oprah Winfrey. The bundle that is likely to receive the most attention, though, is one that covers Hillary Rodham Clinton’s ill-fated attempt as first lady to overhaul the health care system. Mrs. Clinton, who ran for president in 2008, is considering a second attempt in 2016. Here are some notable sections:

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
