Obama’s skip Christmas Services

By AMY SULLIVAN, Time

 The Obama family was too busy to celebrate the birth of Christ

The Senate vote on final passage of health reform almost scuttled their plans, but it looks like the First Family will still make it to Hawaii for Christmas. They’ve had a whirlwind holiday season so far, starting with the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, through hosting more than 50,000 people for 27 parties and open houses, and ending with a visit by the First Lady, Malia and Sasha, and the family’s dog Bo, to deliver cookies to the Children’s National Medical Center. The Obamas have also started their own holiday traditions in their new home, adding a Christmas wishing tree to the decorations festooning the White House.

But there’s one common Christmas practice not on the First Family’s schedule: a visit to Christmas Eve church services.

Church, in fact, has been a surprisingly tough issue for the Obamas. They resigned their membership with Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago in 2008 after Obama renounced the church’s controversial former pastor, Jeremiah Wright. And while the First Family intended to find a local church to attend when they moved to Washington, concerns about crowds and displacing regular worshippers has prevented them from finding a new religious home during their first year here.

The Obamas have attended Sunday services in Washington three times this year — once at the predominantly African-American 19th Street Baptist Church, and twice at St. John’s Episcopal Church across Lafayette Square from the White House.

    He is a Muslim, a towel head….He does not want to appear sypathetic to his muslim brothers as regards Christianity….He should go lay down with pigs….

      Oliver, the term towel head is very derogatory and actually incorrect. They cover their heads with what is actually a small sheet, not a towel. So from here on please be more respectful and address them correctly as Sheet Heads!!!!!

    This corrupt fake is a muslim. He has done NOTHING for this country but try to bank rupt and destroy it. obama is a fraud and is trying to destroy our Constitution. The corrupt idiots in government have done nothing to stop this muslim piece of camel dung. obama should be impeached for treason and all the other corrupt dealings he has done. I do not think there is one true American in the white house at this time. Are the tax payers footing the bill for all the "aids" michelle needs to look halfway decent? How many? 20 people need to help her? Just how many vacations does this fake imposter "planted" muslim need to take? And is all this still on the tax payers dime? obamas idea of spreading the wealth is give it to him and his corrupt administration of markist commies. obamas next vacation should be life in prison and all his family DEPORTED to get them all off welfare! obama is just one lie after another and the stupid democrats must ALL be voted out of office for being just as corrupt. 2010 will be the year tax paying AMERICANS take back control of our country, our Constitution, and our Freedom. God Bless America and to hell with obama!
