Thanks be to God

Not if you ask Barack Obama. From FoxNews:
President Obama did not include any reference to God during his weekly address titled, “On Thanksgiving, Grateful for the Men and Women Who Defend Our Country.”

His remarks were void of any religious references although Thanksgiving is a holiday traditionally steeped in giving thanks and praise to God.

The president said his family was “reflecting on how truly lucky we truly are.”

This is just odd. There's no other way to describe it. Read the rest of it.

What President of the United States talks this way? "How truly lucky we truly are..." This holiday is so deeply linked to a public recognition on the part of our leaders of God's great beneficence that the president's conspicuous omission of any reference to God in his official address today borders on the scandalous. But you see, Barack Obama cannot help himself. The address is a perfect reflection of the man. This is how he sees the world. His agnostic, sterile Thanksgiving screed, devoid of any reference to God and loaded with empty platitudes and fluff, says a lot about the hollowness of the man, about his rootless background and his irreligious upbringing.
