Obama Forgets God



There is an uproar directed towards President Obama after he omitted any mention of God in his Thanksgiving speech.  He thanks troops and others, but did not thank God.

While this may be a petty issue for some, it is something we should reflect on.  Thanksgiving is a holiday that was established based on the religious principles of the Pilgrims.  Thanks are given to the Creator mentioned in the Constitution.

This is the purpose of Thanksgiving.  For a President to not thank God on this day is indeed a scandal.  How can our leader not thank the Creator that has endowed Americans with inalienable rights?
