Is Christianity not trendy enough?

It’s definitely Muslim week across the world as President Obama woos the Middle East. I do worry that the Christian religion might not fare well these next few years.

What about those shots of the First Family heading to church? Wait, I haven’t seen many of those. We got this story in January. There was another about how Obama’s still church shopping a couple of months ago.

His most recent visit to a religious house was a mosque in Cairo.

I won’t say it worries me, but every once in a while, it does make you stop and think.

H/T to 4-Block World for setting the brain in motion.

    I feel that Obama’s speech in Cairo served a humanitarian purpose, recognizing differences in religions but promoting their collaborative, common undertone of peace and community.
    I am confused on several aspects of your blog post, so I’m responding with some rhetorical questions to which you may respond if you feel necessary:
    What is the threat of Obama speaking to people in the Middle East? Does this in some way limit or threaten your culture, values, or way of life? How so? Do you not want our country to improve relations with the rest of the world? Doesn’t it make sense to first improve relations with those who like us the least?

    If you feel there is a threat to separation of church and state, I would like to know why. I don’t think Obama is trying to associate the U.S. with Islam religion, or legislate in any way to promote or reflect Muslim beliefs. Rather, he is recognizing that the people of the U.S. and most of the Middle East have different religious beliefs; ignorance of other peoples’ ways of live and values has typically led to discord and hate. To me, Obama’s speach in Cairo is a step towards collaboration and understanding, not a diminishing of your own religious beliefs.
    Do you think he has some other, deceitful purpose? If you have some basis for your speculation of Obama being a ‘Muslim threat’ to Christian ways of life in the U.S., I would love to hear it.

  3. This is the hippest president in generations and he’s out to tell America Islam is cool. Islam is Islam. But America wasn’t founded on the teachings of Mohammed (may peace be upon him.) I’m sincerely worried Obama will attempt to rewrite America’s history.

    I doubt our President has the intelligence for genuine deception. He’s too preoccupied with being hip to carry out much of a plan.

    This post was about the potential for an American president to walk away from the tradition of participation in the Christian relegion. You batted foul into left field.
