Recently, Time Magazine ran an article that outlined an incident when Barack Obama visited Jerusalem. Obama wrote a prayer “in the solitude of his hotel room”, and carried it with him to Jerusalem’s Western Wall. The Western Wall is one of Judaism’s holiest sites. Jewish believers flock there and place handwritten prayers in the cracks of the wall. That’s over 1 million pieces of paper each year. Twice yearly, the prayers are gathered from the wall and buried on the Mount of Olives.
Reading these prayers is considered Taboo.
But after Obama left the sacred site, someone dug his note out and took it to a newspaper where it was later published:
Protect my family and me.
Forgive me my sins, and help me guard against pride and despair.
Give me the wisdom to do what is right and just. And make me an instrument of your will.
My stomach turned.
The article from Israel Insider Magazine opens with the truth of the matter:
What initially seemed to be a journalistic scoop of dubious moral propriety now seems to be a case of an Israeli paper being played by the Barack Obama campaign.
Yes, Senator Obama’s “private” prayer was intended all along to sucker guys like me who believe him to have an overinflated ego that can admit no fault.
Reinforcing the suspicion of his visit, the Obama campaign later released a video that contained a montage of Obama’s “prayer” at the Western Wall with church scenes, crosses, doves, and hymn music.
Politics are politics. We all know they’re dirty. But some things need to remain sacred. To me, FAITH is one of them.
Someone who is willing to throw their pastor of 20+ years under the bus the way that Obama did with Reverend Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright cannot be trusted. Barack Obama has insulted every American of Jewish faith by his mockery of “prayer” at the Western Wall.
This man doesn’t need to be sent to the White House. He needs to be sent to Sunday School.
“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.” – Matthew 6: 5-7
