His muslim upbringing is the source of that mocking. And did you notice that half-way through the blessing he had to look to his left to see how to finish the blessing? He could not even pretend to be The Pope without "off-screen" instructions. So what does a "traditional" Muslim use his left hand for .. given the lack of toilet paper in most Muslim countries?
    C'mon now you're talking about a guy who didn't realize the First Lady of IIRC Burma gave him the greeting the royalty gives servants.

    Typical Liberal...he thought he was being funny...and he failed.

    The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

    I grew up in the UCC and we never made the sign of the cross. I wouldn't know how to do it properly. Our minister's wife and a friend once performed traditional african sacred dancing during a service, however. Since there were no africans (not even african-americans, at that time) in the church, I'll never know if they got it right.


    My friends and I have made the sign of the cross jokingly and probably improperly after narrow escapes, usually of the vehicular kind.

    That is inaccurate. At least in Fort Worth, Texas. At my church, the congregation does this at several points during the service.

    Do you have turkeys in your church?
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
