Obama says God wants jobs legislation

President Barack Obama

Was President Obama mocking Congress for reaffirming the nation’s official motto “In God We Trust?”



In the video, the President reaffirms his belief in God, then speaks for the Almighty — stating that the Creator wants Congress to approve legislation that would put people back to work. Then Obama seems to poke fun at the House of Representatives for voting overwhelmingly a few days ago to put it on the record that “In God We Trust” — not “E Pluribus Unum” — is the national motto.

Obama had stated in a speech that the Latin phrase, which means “Out of many, one” is our motto.

    President Obama is entitle to what ever view he thinks is right for him or for his country. Especially when he is the leader and President of this wonderful nation. True in a way Congress needs to work for Job Bill (quickly). But at the same time Congress also needs to reaffirm the “Official” National Motto which is important because America had a Dream and that American Dream must have a purpose or clause or goodwill, goodness or just plain good “Principle of Providence” is the Perfect Precise one. We as a diverse nation must always focus on something that really benefits us all whether we believe in Jesus Christ or NOT. Believing in Christianity is for individual choice but as for a Nation, we must have a Prominent Principle and we must choose our choice, a majority choice (ONE) to lead us. Well some critics may argue what does this National Motto has to do with benefits? here’s my point. We now as People of USA has a Providence Principle and this issue is solved. When an issue is solved we can move forward with time, energy and focus or concentrate on other issues. In my opinion every important issues should be solved so that we can move forward (instead of stagnant or stick on one issue unresolved) and leave the solved issue behind us. Does that make sense, common sense?

    Beneficiary applies to ALL. Christians must not be discriminated just because we are Christians. Does Obama really make a mockery on Christianity or even to Congress? Well I leave it to Obama himself for God only knows his heart and his intentions and he himself also knows his heart/mind. I will not judge whatever Obama says and do (on circumstantial basis) but leave it for God to do the judgment.

    you need to take it down a couple of notches loretta. he wasn’t mocking me, so don’t speak for me. and, you know what is in his heart? so, you are now God and can know what is in a man’s heart? he’s acting more Christian than any republican who votes against the poor, weak, ill, unemployed, and those in need. at least President Obama is trying to help, and put our country back on it’s feet (following a republican president). and furthermore, only republicans signed a pledge to a man (grover norquist) and not a pledge to our great country. you are misled.

    The President is a Christian. Who are we to judge. God’s word says, “Juge ye not”. God looks at the heart and speaks to the heart. God had His reasons for putting President Obama in this position and will put him back in this position. Juge ye not or you will be judged!

    We are to be a little bit careful when we try to judge others. If they proclaim to be christians, who are we to judge.Their fruit would show.
    Obama is a Christian

    Actually the Bible says Christians are to judge those who “claim to be Christians”. See 1 Corinthians 5:12,13

    It’s far too easy for people to take the “judge not” scripture (Matthew 7:1) out of context. The “judge not” passage is referring to people outside the faith. From the fruit that Obama has shown I believe one can say he does not act Christian even if he claims it.
