Pundit Asks: When Will Obama Go to Church?

Easter's coming up this Sunday, everybody, which has some people asking — hey, why hasn't President Obama gone to church? Questions about unemployment, Iraq, or his latest trip overseas may seem more impending, but this is America, and people want to know why Obama hasn't been praying in public on Sundays.

Writing on Fox News, commentator Bill Sammon points out that Obama promised last May to choose a new house of worship in January, since his membership at Jeremiah Wright's Trinity United didn't really work out for him. Sammon writes:

But the president made no decision in January, February or March. And now, with Easter just days away, Obama has yet to reveal what church he may have chosen or when he might attend his first Sunday services as president.

I'm sure there's a bunch going on here, like a busy schedule (which includes trips to Middle Eastern mosques), and taking time to choose which church he'd like to bestow his security detail on. That being said, other presidents have made time to hit services. Maybe Obama's reluctant to go to church simply as a PR move?

Would you like to see Obama attend church, or are you prepared to mind your own business?

Ridiculous. More important things on his mind than attending church, I hope.

I have no concern over President Obama's religious choice, or lack there of. I was actually impressed that he invited staff members and their family to participate in a Seder dinner for Passover. I find it more important that he is accepting of all relgions, rather than promoting Christianity.

I agree with Colleninator. What's with the emphasis on Obama being Christian? American government is secular isn't it?????

Sure he went to church. 20 years of learning under the soft-spoken Rev. Jeremiah Wright. Who wouldn't grow in their spiritual faith under so honorable a teacher?*Major, <b>MAJOR</b> sarcasm

There have been private services at the White House in the past, and people like Billy Graham have visited privately to pray with or counsel presidents.

Haus said:"I highly doubt there are private services at the WH."What makes you say this? It is completely possible.

I have a hard time Obama ever went to church. I mean, how could you claim you went to church, but have not ever heard that racist pastor make the claims he did like what he said regarding 9/11?
