No Church on Christmas, Mr. President? Of Course Not, Communists Don’t Do Church

Time Magazine reported that President Obama and his family didn’t attend a church service this Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. He is, to my knowledge, the first president to skip a Christmas Eve service for a long, long time.

But, while it is interesting to note that Obama is quite unchurched in a position where profession of the Christian faith has been nearly of a piece with the office, his skipping church — again — shouldn’t surprise anyone. Obama is not really much of a Christian after all.

Time notes that Obama has only attended church three times in the year he’s been in D.C. as our president and even when he pretended to be an active member of Trinity United, the uncouth Chicago church where the Racist Reverend Jeremiah Wright belched his hate on a weekly basis, he never attended with regularity or fervor.

Obama’s claims at being a Christian are entirely a political move, not a religious one. It seems plain that he only attended the hate church in Chicago because that’s where all the high profile blacks in Chicago went. He went there to say “look at me” as opposed to “God save me.”

Naturally, many will jump into the discussion here and say it’s all because he’s a Muslim, to which I must disagree. He is not a Muslim. But he really doesn’t present himself as much of a Christian, either. I won’t presume to read his soul, but who cannot see that his entire political and philosophical upbringing makes of him more of an atheist by way of communism as opposed to a lapsed Christian?

An ingrained anti-religious ideal is the hallmark of Obama’s political philosophy as it was created by Karl Marx. Remember, in the introduction to a book on critiques of the philosopher Hegel, Karl Marx wrote, “Die Religion … ist das Opium des Volkes,” which means religion is the opiate of the people (or the masses). A fuller quote in that introduction finds Marx calling religion a thing that is the “sigh of the oppressed creature.”

Of his new philosophy, communism, Marx later wrote, “But communism abolishes eternal truths, it abolishes all religion, and all morality, instead of constituting them on a new basis…”

From Marx, their philosophical father, the left has launched one war against Christianity after another. The ACLU, for instance, has been on a crusade to destroy Christianity for decades and few liberals have any interest in attending church at all. Most profess to hate religions, but especially Christianity.

This is the climate that gave birth to Obamaism. This is the anti-Christian fervor in which Barack Hussein Obama’s very core principles were formed. So, it really isn’t a surprise to see him jettison his church attendance once he got to the highest office he could ever hope to reach. He no longer needs the cloak of this pretension. He no long has to pretend he is a Christian, no longer has to waste his time — in his eyes — attending a church service.

Barack Obama is truly liberalis modernus. Unchurched, godless, and callous about those who are. A major question remains, though. Will a nation that still finds 78% of its citizens claiming the Christian faith continue in its support of such a godless president?
