THEY TOLD ME IF I VOTED REPUBLICAN WE’D HAVE A BIBLE-READING “CHRISTIANIST” IN THE WHITE HOUSE. And they were right! Obama: I pray every night, read the Bible.
Praying and reading the Bible are part of his everyday life, President Obama said in a wide-ranging interview broadcast Friday.
Speaking with Barbara Walters, Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama also described how they involve their daughters in daily prayer.
“Michelle and I have not only benefited from our prayer life, but I think the girls have too,” the president told Walters. “We say grace before we eat dinner every night. We take turns.”
Those people who told me what would happen if I voted Republican sure are right a lot.
UPDATE: Jim Treacher emails: “Remember Jesusland?” This was Ken Layne after the 2004 elections:
I’ve got a big problem with Jesusland. If you want to worship the ghost of a jew from the Roman Empire, that’s cool. Enjoy it! But when you people and your bizarre mystery cult claim the goddamned president as your prime convert who rules by the voices in his head, I call bullshit.
I guess we all live there, now. Change!
ANOTHER UPDATE: Yes, I did see this coming.
