    Barack Obama’s open mockery of the Sign of the Cross​



    By: Judi McLeod

    ‘Father Barack Obama‘ mocked the Sign of the Cross at the White House yesterday.

    It was an open mockery of the Christian prayer that is accompanied by the immortal words used by peasants and kings over the centuries: “In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit”.

    Obama, who is left-handed, made the sign of the cross with his left hand, which out of respect for the centuries-long Christian practice, no one ever does.

    Obama’s left-handed sign of the cross was made over a gobbling turkey during the National Thanksgiving Turkey Presentation Ceremony, that takes place at the White House every year shortly before Thanksgiving, having been resurrected by George H.W. Bush in 1989.

    Obama departed from the usual “presidential pardon” granting the turkey a “special dispensation” in words as he twice made his left-handed Sign of the Cross.

    There were lots of giggles from the two Obama daughters and lots of gobbling from the turkey recorded during the ceremony now on YouTube.

    Clearly using his left hand for all to see, Obama made the Sign of the Cross backwards.

    He's left handed. What hand would you expect him to it with? You're just invoking superstition, a sin in itself.

    I am left handed and when I was forced to attend the brainwashing at our local Catholic church I crossed myself with my left hand an no one ever said anything to me.

    Man am I glad I walked away from all the superstitious nonsense.

    No. That is not how it works. What a very weak attempt at playing the apologist.

    Don't debase yourself by lying. Do you shake hands with your left hand? No, you do not. Do people in the military salute with their left hand if they happen to be left-handed? No, they do not.

    I was never corrected for using my left hand in church.

    I was smart enough to stop attending the cult when I was a kid.

    If i remember correctly and I do as a lefty when I was a kid I would put out my left hand to shake but social convention and the fact that most people are right handed forced me to switch hands.

    What's so hard to understand about that?
