THE WISE SHALL UNDERSTAND

For 4th Straight Year Obama’s Thanksgiving Day Message Doesn’t Thank God

| November 23, 2012

 

The god of this world

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” 2 Corinthians 4:4

Yet again, President Obama’s Thanksgiving message eschewed any direct reference to thanking God, making this the fourth straight year in which the President of the United States has ignored the central message of the holiday in favor of political grandstanding.

This year, Obama’s central message was that now that he’s been re-elected, Americans should agree with all of his policies. His unity routine sounds strangely empty after a campaign in which he focused on dividing Americans:

But most of all, it’s a time to give thanks for each other, and for the incredible bounty we enjoy.

That’s especially important this year.  As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy.  But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to ….

We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back.  Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.

How are we supposed to move forward together, you ask? Why, with greater government spending, of course!

As for God, here was the only mention – as a throwaway line in a hackneyed aphorism, used constantly by this president for communitarian sloganeering:

“As Americans, we are a bold, generous, big-hearted people.  When our brothers and sisters are in need, we roll up our sleeves and get to work – not for the recognition or the reward, but because it’s the right thing to do.  Because there but for the grace of God go I.  And because here in America, we rise or fall together, as one nation and one people.”

No mention of thanking God. None.

But, of course, we’re used to this. In 2011, there was no mention of God at all. In 2010, Obama was closer, but still missed the mark (“we’ll spend some time taking stock of what we’re thankful for: the God-given bounty of America, and the blessings of one another”). In 2009, Obama didn’t thank God, either.

Compare that to Obama’s Thanksgiving Day proclamations, which he does not read or speak. Those are filled with God – at least for the last three years. In his first year, filled with the vim and vigor of his original election, Obama preferred to eschew any direct thanking of God even in his proclamation.

2012: “On Thanksgiving Day, individuals from all walks of life come together to celebrate this most American tradition, grateful for the blessings of family, community, and country. Let us spend this day by lifting up those we love, mindful of the grace bestowed upon us by God and by all who have made our lives richer with their presence.”

2011: “As we gather in our communities and in our homes, around the table or near the hearth, we give thanks to each other and to God for the many kindnesses and comforts that grace our lives.  Let us pause to recount the simple gifts that sustain us, and resolve to pay them forward in the year to come.”

2010: “As Americans gather for the time-honored Thanksgiving Day meal, let us rejoice in the abundance that graces our tables, in the simple gifts that mark our days, in the loved ones who enrich our lives, and in the gifts of a gracious God.”

Of course, nobody sees these proclamations, so Obama doesn’t have to be embarrassed about them.

It’s no wonder that this President’s Democratic National Committee platform tried to remove God.

He’s not a big fan of the Big Guy. Even on Thanksgiving. After all, what need do you have for God when you’ve got the state? source – Breitbart

  1. He is a Athiest. Some day he will know God

  2. NTEB News Desk says:

    Yes, he will…at the White Throne Judgment.

    i believe that,he doesnt seek out sound guidance or conisous desision making.he look for his own path to where he THINKS he’s going.like it sez”long and wide is the path,but if you dont seek out my will in all things you’l be stumbling block in all that you do and never gain nothing.

  4. Arley says:

    It seems to me that BHO’s ‘Unity,’ isn’t quoted right, as it should say “””U-knee-t’ME.”””
    Come Soon dear Jesus.

  5. Juni says:

    He ignores God, he refutes the foundation on which this great nation was built upon. What do the righteous do when the foundations are shaken. American is being shaken like never before and still Obama and his administration defy the living God. One day he will have to bow the knee to Jesus, whether he is saved or unsaved, living or dead, when he stands on the right hand of the lamb or the left hand, if his name is to be written in the lambs book of life or if it is not written, he will have to give account.

  6. friend of God says:

    Did Bush thank God every year…if he didn’t …would you criticise him….I believe he should give thanks to God publicly…but it seems to me yall are critiquing him and searching for flaws…because if he did give thanks to God(and he should)..yall would find something else to accuse him of…I’m not taking his side but yall are so obvious

  7. hiway280z says:

    why would he? He has worna ring since college days that says” there is no god but allah”in arabic.

  8. Jacqui says:

    Why does Obama go whittering on about how great it is to be an American and how the Americans are such a wonderful community people who stand by each other in hard times. He’s not even American! He’s a Muslim from Indonesia with an American passport. He goes so overboard about the American way and the American spirit that I get the feeling he’s hyping Americans up to make them think they are something more than they even believed themselves to be.

  9. That MAN does NOT BELIEVE I GOD!

  10. lola says:

    Oh for Pete’s sake! Of course Obama didn’t thank God in public because he is just such a humble man. I’m convinced that when he was looking at his own reflection, as he was shaving that morning, he said to his image in the mirror, “Now God, I just don’t want to be tooting my own horn today so I’m going to just give credit to everyone else.”
    (But what would you expect from such a humble man who believes himself to be ‘g’od?)

  11. Carol H says:

    I am giving PRAISE TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST GOD’S ONLY SON….. ISRAEL IS AND WILL ALWAYS BELONG TO THE JEWISH PEOPLE FOREVER— PREPARE to MEET YOUR GOD they will all SEE GOD of Abraham, Jacob, Isaac, they will see and KNOW the CREATOR of the UNIVERSE EXISTS they will SHAKE IN THEIR SKIN when they are STANDING BEFORE HIM.

BLESSED BE THE LORD JESUS FOREVER.. I THANK JESUS CHRIST FOR HIS HOLY BLOOD that WASHES AWAY SINS . HE REIGNS HE IS MAJASTIC, POWERFUL,MIGHTY. GOD THE MOST HIGH….

    Obama knows God exists. He may have the psycological makeup of a Nero, but he’s not stupid. Spiritually however, even his name is after the name of God’s greats creation, Lucifer. Knowing of the coming fall of Lucifer, and all of the evil to come, God forgave and spoke creation into existance. Evil has taken one third of the angelic race, but it’s relm of corruption is but a fraction of the tens of millions of civilizations in creation. In this fifth and final age the earth is isolated from all who live eternally in the knowing of his presence. There is a council outside time, who will never permit the expansion of corrupted humanity to move out into the multiverse. God will restore the years to us, but first he will restore our spiritual condition by his remnant. The heart in relationship with God cannot help but give worship to he who gives eternal life.
