Praise the Lord, boys. No, seriously! Praise the Lord, boys. No, seriously!
From a Catholic News Service Report by Patricia Zapor -- "Quoting Pope Francis and the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. at the White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama observed that the celebration of Easter puts other concerns into context.

"With humility and with awe, we give thanks to the extraordinary sacrifice of Jesus Christ, our savior," Obama said at the annual event in the East Room. "We reflect on the brutal pain that he suffered, the scorn that he absorbed, the sins that he bore, this extraordinary gift of salvation that he gave to us. And we try, as best we can, to comprehend the darkness that he endured so that we might receive God's light."

"Speaking to an audience of Christian religious leaders from around the country, Obama added that "even as we grapple with the sheer enormity of Jesus' sacrifice, on Easter we can't lose sight of the fact that the story didn't end on Friday. The story keeps on going. On Sunday comes the glorious Resurrection of our savior." FULL REPORT HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: Well isn't that nice! We're all good, little God-loving, baby-killing Christians again. I guess we're to the point now where politicians in Washington will say pretty much anything to anyone at any time to keep the “we’re good guys” charade going.

Even good ole Uncle Joe Biden got his religious groove on for the event: "Who we are as Christians, and quite frankly, I think that's who we are as Americans. We're constantly renewed as a people and as individuals by our ability to enter into the mystery. We live our faith when we instill in our children the ability to wonder, to contemplate, and to listen to that tiny whisper amid the great silence. We live our faith when we nurture the hope and possibilities that have always defined us as a country. We live Easter -- and to live Easter is to live with the constant notion that we can always do better. We can always do better."

Yes, Joe, and you can start by calling for an end to the abortion genocide in America and, while you're at it, stop encouraging the carpet bombing of Christian marriage in this country. Until then, the only thing we're wondering about is your audacity in waxing all rhapsodic about your “deep Christian beliefs”. Yeah, right!  In fact SHUT IT, Joe! You’re an apostate, remember?
