Obama Warned Us – Ash Wednesday

Posted on March 7, 2014 2:00 pm

“Today, Michelle and I join our fellow Christians in the United States and around the world in marking Ash Wednesday.”

@BarackObama

“See? I said ‘our fellow Christians’. Told you I was a Christian. Although I suppose a real Christian wouldn’t have to keep pointing out his faith.”

    I’m pretty sure that having one of your staffers run over to the Ash Wednesday service, and then lick his hand, put in his forehead, and transfer some ash to your forehead doesn’t count.

    Notice that they “marked” Ash Wednesday and did not “celebrate” Ash Wednesday.

    Every time there’s a religious event like Ash Wednesday, Obama hauls out his tattered CliffsNotes pamphlet on “What Christians Believe.” And he still doesn’t fool anybody.

    I don’t think Baptists, Presbyterians, Mormons or other variations of Protestantism “celebrate” Ash Wednesday. I think it’s only the Catholics and High Church Episcopals that do that.

    Also, he appears to have made that statement on THURSDAY.

    Clod.

    It’ll be interesting to see if he disappears for three days on April 18th after being put up on a cross out on the White House lawn.

    Being a Ronin Catholic is pretty cool. Take my word for it.
