What was really behind a national day of service?

On 9/11, in complete contrast to what the day has meant historically to this country, Obama asked us to surrender the traditional meaning of the day into a day of service to our neighborhoods, our community and our country.

Why on this day of all days, did he try and require us to preform a service to our neighbors and communities? Could it be that he, like his followers, believe that we have to atone for something? That we are doing some sort of penance for a wrong we’ve committed?

Does he, in his heart of hearts, believe like most of the lunatic left, that we brought those attacks on ourselves? Remember the words of his minister, Rev. Jeremiah Wright: “America’s chickens have come home to roost!”

Because we are a capitalist nation, a nation that believes in individualism and is not a Islamic theocracy, were we somehow asking for this to happen? Does he honestly believe that those almost 3000 innocents died because we somehow deserved these attacks?

Does this explain his Islamic world apology tour last spring? Is this why he wanted school children to write letters setting goals on how to “serve their president?” Is he trying to set a new tone for Americans?

It seems to fall into place for me. I’ve become a real cynic since this man took office.  So many things he does and says feel like part of a grand, secret scheme to me: This “Christian” president has not found or attended church since taking office, except for a funeral. He did not honor or recognize the National Day of Prayer. But he did honor Ramadan by hosting a White House dinner for Muslim Americans.

And as an aside, it’s interesting to note a couple things: his vacation officially began on Monday, August 24th – Ramadan began on Saturday, August 22nd and  the word Islam means  surrender and service of oneself to Allah.

    Y’know what? Here’s a novel response to this old charge. I hope Obama is a Muslim. It would be good for America. Rev. Calvin Butts once said that if we are good Muslims and good Christians, no one would be able to tell if we are Muslims or Christians. Muslims pray five times a day to God. The God of Abraham, the God of Moses, and the God of Jesus. You could do a lot worse than have a Muslim president. http://asad123.wordpress.com

      If you are correct and you hope he is a Muslim, why not own up to it? Where’s the shame in it? You say they are wonderful God-fearing people who are no different than Christians and I would HOPE you include Jews in that comparison, then why not admit to it and practice your faith in the open? The Muslim faith is all about conversion and what better way to do so than with a Muslim president of the United States?
