I live in a not-particularly-religious, particularly-liberal part of the country, which means that during the Presidential campaign I was surrounded by a large number of not-particularly-religious fervent Obama supporters, which means that I had the following conversation (or some variant of it) on multiple occasions:
“You realize that Obama is a Jesus-lover?”
“You don’t know that.”
“He claims it on his website and in his book and in his speeches!”
“That’s true, but he’s ‘much too smart’ to believe in that stuff. I choose to believe that he’s a craven liar who only claims to be religious in order to get elected. That way I can proudly vote for him!”
The day before the president arrived in Elkhart, Culp spent an hour and a half crafting his prayer, roughly a minute and 20 seconds long, before calling an aide from the White House Office of Public Liaison to recite it for vetting, as the administration requested. “She said that it was beautiful and that there shouldn’t be a problem with it but that she would call in the morning if there was,” Culp recalls.
If anyone from the Obama administration is reading, I humbly offer my “prayer” services for the next time he makes an appearance in the Pacific Northwest.
I just have to think up a word that rhymes with false.
