When color trumps Christianity

Star Parker -

President Obama hosted a reception at the White House celebrating LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Pride month. Black Christians should take note and learn a few things about our black president. As they say, we are what we do.
It tells us something that Mr. Obama had no time to host an event for the National Day of Prayer. Nor did he have time to accept the invitation to convey greetings and a few remarks to the couple hundred thousand who came to Washington, as they do every January, for the March for Life. However, the LGBT Pride event did make it onto the president's busy schedule. Here are parts of his remarks I think noteworthy for black Christians:

Besides blowing off the National Day of Prayer and the March for Life, Obama also had no time to spare for the White House Easter Egg Hunt, and then recently ignored that "God and Country" festival in Idaho. Add to that his assertion during a speech abroad that we are not a Judeo-Christian country and one cannot help but conclude that we have a President who not only does not go out of his way to display religious belief, but who seems to actively avoid any event that has any connection with religion, however tenuous. I am not opposed at all to the former; nothing wrong with a person choosing to be reticent about their religious faith, but the latter suggests hostility towards religious traditions that played a large part in forming this country--very disturbing attitude in a President. It is well known that the civil rights movement for the most part originated in the black churches.
