4th Straight Year: Obama Thanksgiving Resolution Doesn’t Thank God

For the fourth straight year, the Thanksgiving resolution from President Barack Obama fails to actually thank God — which is the fundamental reason why Thanksgiving is observed.

In 1789, President George Washington issued a proclamation that set forth the main reason for Thanksgiving, saying, “Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation.

President Abraham Lincoln, who made Thanksgiving a national holiday, also understood the religious context upon which it was founded.

“It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens,” he wrote.

But, to President Obama, Thanksgiving is about food and football, according to his official remarks as distributed by the White House.

    There is nothing to comment here except that Barry thinks he is god and he will have no other gods before him. I know what the real God thinks about this and grace or no grace Barry (along with us and all his idiotic supporters) will be called accountable for our lack of real Thanksgiving for our God and the results may not be pretty. I know where I stand, As for me and my house I will serve the one true God and not the false messiah that Barry thinks he is. I am thankful for being an American and being born when I was and for all of God’s continued blessing even though I know it may be tough going for a while. I’m not backing down in what I believe even if it costs me my life. May God bless us all, we’re going to need it because there is no where else left to go.

    Even if he did thank God, would any of you believe he was sincere for a moment?
    In addition, if he did, do you honestly think he would be thanking the Judeo-Christian God?

    Not a Christian.

    Not a Muslim.

    He is a devout worshiper of The Church of Liberalism. In Liberalism, there is not a “God;” Government is God.

    Hmmm.. no mention of God from W either, but I guess that’s ok (http://www.usa-patriotism.com/speeches/gwb_112708.htm).

    And I’m sure you see a lot of God at work at those red-state Walmarts where people trample and fight each other for stuff to “give thanks”.

    Nice one!

    Hey Jimmy,

    Maybe you’ve never noticed, but those retards trampling and fighting each other for stuff at Walmart in the red states are the retard liberals like you who have infested the state like the parasites you all are. And they never give thanks because they all think they’re entitled.

    Why is it that decent, ethical, intelligent people have to share this country, let alone decision-making power, with jabbering idiot Christholes and shameless bigots?

    Can’t you people try to aspire to something better than that? Why don’t you fools try reading just the things that Jesus himself said, and take them to heart?

    @Dr. Jimmy Thanks for the link. Did you happen to read this portion of the W’s address from the link you provided?

    When the Pilgrims celebrated their first Thanksgiving nearly four centuries ago, they had already suffered through a harsh and bitter winter. But they were willing to endure that adversity to live in a land where they could worship the Almighty without persecution.

    Stress on “the Almighty”

    The closest Teh Omen got to God in his statement (see link in the original post) was saying citizens of this nation can worship as they please – but that’s not mentioning “the Almighty” or any other higher power. So lefties can still feel free to worship trees, celebrities, themselves or their one true lord, Big Governemnt.

    So hey thanks for the gun and the bullets now drop dead.

    @Some guy from Texas What like Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s, and unto God the things that are God’s?”

    But I guess to liberals Caesar (read Big Government) is God and so there is no seperation between the two.

    Libs are quick to refer to a redefined Christ that fits the Socialist agenda and just as quick to condemn Christians when they actually try to live as directed in the Bible (like the sin of homosexuality and abortion).

    What’s that? Oh, I hear Nancy Pelosi calling you for the liberal sacriment, Kool aid and cynide. Enjoy and drop dead as well.

    I would guess that he’s going to try to disarm us before he comes out and publicly pledges his allegiance to allah. Because that would not go over very well with the remaining patriots.
