In Praise of the President

At your Worship On The Way network we are pro-life, pro-family and pro-religious liberties. As such, we rarely have occasion to praise our President, for he often takes contrary, left-of-center positions which oppose these traditional basics. But, during these days surrounding the celebration of Father’s Day, it would seem appropriate to take the opportunity to praise the President for his personal example—as a father.

Not only does President Obama appear happily marriedto his first wife, but he seems engaged in the lives and development of his two daughters. Even with his many responsibilities, he is involved in their school life and extra curricular activities. Together, as a family, they are often seen going to church, as well.

These traits are certainly desirable examples for all families and demonstrative experiences for the emotional wellbeing of children and parents, alike. We commend our President for these positive examples of fatherhood.

    I’m delighted and amazed that a church group is praying for and praising our President for being a good father. There is so much negative and it seems that we forget that, in spite of our christian beliefs, we must pray for our leaders.
    Thank you again

    I was under the misapprehension that Barak Obahma was of the Muslim faith, yet you say that he is often seen going to church.

    Well, it looks like you got to kick things off on the new blog, with the very first post ever.

    congrats!

    But though you say – ” in spite of. . . ”

    don’t you mean – because of. . .?

    But I agree otherwise, and it is good to stand behind The Prez when he does something right, but I can’t tell if he’s sincre most of the time.

    And how ’bout that crazy stance on Isreal?

    That will never go over well here.

    Yes, I should have proofed before posting. Thank you for the alertness.
    I think that we all love Israel and, perhaps, we should be praying
    that the president would come to a better understanding of what the
    borders mean. I prefer to trust God working through us, as Christians,
    praying that the “crazy stance” would never come about. I will also
    pray that we will know the sincerity of politicians. If you had omitted
    the “but I can’t tell if he’s sincere most of the time,” I think that your comments
    would have been more effective. What do you think would happen if
    we would all pray for the President to make good decisions and not
    negate our prayers by making negative comments. As I was taught
    at Church On The Way to pray for our leaders even if we don’t
    agree with all of the “crazy stances.” Love you
