The hate-fest on the Washington Times comment board following a story about the President’s decision not to attend various National Day of Prayer events really has to be read to be believed. (Yes, the word “anti-Christ” is used, and of course “closet Muslim.”)
But the thread has one note of sanity, from “novathecat”:
I’m not an Obama supporter, but I think he is correct in not participating in public prayer. The picture of corrupt politicians parading false piety is offensive to me. According to the New Testament, Matthew 6:5 – 6…
5. And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites [are]: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Maybe if the Christianists spent less time stirring up hatred, they could read their Bibles more.
