God? What’s God Got to do With Thanksgiving?

I guess President Obama failed to read President Lincoln’s original creation of the holiday Thanksgiving:

“I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” Abe Lincoln

Sherman Frederick in the Las Vegas Review-Journal:

In what I think almost all Americans would call “odd,” President Barack Obama delivered his weekly address with a speech entitled: “On Thanksgiving, Grateful for the Men and Women Who Defend Our Country.”

In the text of his speech, he referred to Thanksgiving as a “celebration of community.”

Holy cow! Is that one screwed up view or what?


Of course we should be getting used to it by now.
