A No Show Shocker?

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

-Thomas Jefferson

Every morning after I wake up,feed the kids & grab my morning cup of coffee; I sit down to check my email,Drudgereport & Facebook. This morning as I was glancing through Drudgereport I came across a very disturbing article (to myself and I know to many around me) but chances are this will probably be swept under the carpet of "oh Wells" our country keeps sweeping all our rights,liberties & values under. It was an article in the Washington post Titled: "Obama to be a prayer day no Show" .

In this article it stated that :"President Obama is distancing himself from the National Day of Prayer by nixing a formal early morning service and not attending a large Catholic prayer breakfast the next morning.
All Mr. Obama will do for the National Day of Prayer, which is Thursday, is sign a proclamation honoring the day, which originated in 1952 when Congress set aside the first Thursday in May for the observance."

His press secretary Robert Gibbs said Tuesday "that the president is simply reverting back to pre-Bush administration practice." Which at this point is no surprise considering he has reverted & undone everything former President George W.Bush did in his 8 years.

For a man whom made a point to show off his "Christian credentials" during his race for the White House and makes a big deal out of all other "days of observance" and holds his Christianity as a badge of honor (so as to make others more comfortable with his electability)yet leads by this example isn't really showing a "Put your Money where your mouth is attitude". Or is he? Martin Luther King said : "To be a Christian without prayer is no more possible than to be alive without breathing" and granted the President has not said he will not pray,just not show a public observance of that day. But isn't this just as if he wasn't observing it at all? One might say not to make a big deal out of this,there are worse things going on? What worries me is that, is this a small little snowflake in the avalanche of what is to come? Is this a glimpse behind his true colors? I will wait,see and pray because if as a Country God has held us together and we can't hold on to God what future is there then for those who believe? I will sit here and wait and see...and through here will I speak.

Yep, these are his true colors. He wears his "Christian" faith only when it is politically expedient.
It's bad enough that Christians in America elected him once... it will be inexcusable if he is reelected. God help us.
