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!

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.

Seoul - North and South Korea traded fire across their disputed maritime border on Monday, with the South´s military saying it had responded to shells landing in its waters from a North live-fire drill. "Some of the shells fired by North Korea dropped in our area and our side responded with fire," a spokesman for the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff told AFP. There was no indication that either side was firing at any particular target.

Their decision to take the next step comes just a few weeks after legislation passed in England to allow same-sex marriage. "We don´t feel the need to take an extra step legally. But since we´re committed for life, we feel it´s really important to take that step, and take advantage of that amazing change in legislation," Furnish said. "We all live by example." The couple have two children together:

Paris - Anne Hidalgo, a Spanish-born Socialist, will be the first female mayor of Paris after an unexpectedly comfortable win in municipal elections on Sunday. Hidalgo, 54, had been expected to be run extremely close by her centre-right rival, former government minister Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet, on a night when the Socialists took a beating from voters across the country because of the unpopularity of President Francois Hollande´s government. But Hidalgo emerged with 54.5 percent of second round votes in the capital, comfortably seeing off Kosciusko-Morizet´s challenge, according to exit polls. An old school feminist socialist,

Seoul, South Korea - North Korea threatened on Sunday to carry out a “new form” of nuclear test, a year after its third nuclear test raised military tensions on the divided Korean Peninsula and prompted the United Nations to tighten sanctions against the North. The North’s Foreign Ministry did not clarify what it meant by a “new form” in its statement, carried by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency. But Washington and its allies have long suspected the country of trying to make nuclear devices small and sophisticated enough to be delivered by intercontinental ballistic missiles it was also developing.

Political newcomer and millionaire Andrej Kiska won by a landslide in Saturday´s presidential run-off, preventing veteran leftist Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico from tightening his grip on power. A non-aligned centrist who made his fortune in the consumer-credit business, the 51-year-old Mr Kiska will be Slovakia´s first president since independence in 1993 without a past in the Communist party. "I want to re-establish the people´s trust in the office of president," Kiska said in a victory speech at his campaign headquarters in the capital Bratislava.

Washington - A simple test appears very good at ruling out heart attacks in people who go to emergency rooms with chest pain, a big public health issue and a huge worry for patients. A large study in Sweden found that the blood test plus the usual electrocardiogram of the heartbeat were 99 percent accurate at showing which patients could safely be sent home rather than be admitted for observation and more diagnostics. Of nearly 9,000 patients judged low risk by the blood test and with normal electrocardiograms, only 15 went on to suffer a heart attack in the next month, and not a single one died.

Director Darren Aronofsky´s biblical epic “Noah” sailed at the weekend box office as the film opened at No. 1 with an estimated $44 million in ticket sales. The film, which cost about $130 million to make, solidly met expectations, according to Paramount Pictures, which had initially forecast a $30-million opening weekend. "Noah" already has generated about $95 million overseas. “It was a fantastic result,” said Megan Colligan, Paramount’s president of domestic marketing and distribution. “I think the movie really surprises people and makes them want to talk about it.” “Noah” brought in a diverse crowd, Colligan said, a 50-50 split

Cincinnati - Pivotal swing states under Republican control are embracing significant new electoral restrictions on registering and voting that go beyond the voter identification requirements that have caused fierce partisan brawls. The bills, laws and administrative rules — some of them tried before — shake up fundamental components of state election systems, including the days and times polls are open and the locations where people vote. (Snip) Democrats in North Carolina are scrambling to fight back against the nation’s most restrictive voting laws, passed by Republicans there last year.

Friendly fire: Navy seeks ´dummy´
training missiles to shoot at pilots

The Navy is considering a novel way to protect its fighter pilots: firing live shoulder-launched surface-to-air missiles at them to train them in evasive action and test aircraft missile warning systems. The shoulder-fired missiles in the hands of terrorists, criminal and enemy fighters pose a worldwide problem. Insurgents in Iraq during the war posted YouTube videos showing their deadly ability with the weapons against U.S. military helicopters. The Navy disclosed its intentions earlier this month in a little-noticed request for information. The request asks defense contractors if they can build a “missile surrogate” that would replicate the missile,

Duty to his country called U.S. Army Specialist Ricky Glenn Henderson to Afghanistan. Now duty to his family is calling him back to Texas, where he hopes to donate a majority of his liver to his dying Vietnam Vet grandfather. Henderson flew back from Afghanistan last week determined to give the gift of life to his very sick 62-year-old- grandfather, Rickey Homer. "The loss and the regret of me not doing anything would have outweighed this. I´m the firstborn grandson; I carry my grandfather´s name," Henderson told KLTV, the ABC affiliate in East Texas. Henderson arranged with his commanding officer to be flown back from Afghanistan

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well.

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook. That playbook was laid out in a

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A University of Virginia student arrested by Alcoholic Beverage Control agents who wrongly believed she´d illegally bought beer when in fact she only had bottled water is seeking $40 million in a lawsuit filed Tuesday. Elizabeth K.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

With studies showing widening economic gaps between whites and African Americans, civil rights leaders in metro Detroit are concerned. “We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Freda Sampson, a leader with the nonprofit group Michigan Roundtable for Diversity and Inclusion. “We’re getting further and further divided.” To help close that racial and class divide, her group is holding an all-day conference, called the Equity Action Summit, on Saturday at Cobo Center in Detroit.
