It has also been three and a half months since the White House insisted that the First Family continues to look for a church in Washington to join. Few people would blame them if they decided it would be too disruptive to upend a local congregation–Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush all chose to largely avoid Washington churches for similar reasons, and conservatives defended their decisions to do so. It’s all the more surprising then that the White House has chosen to dig in on this point and continue to maintain that the Obamas will choose a local church as their main place of worship. It only becomes a Church Watch if they make it one
It’s a Church Watch because you just made it one, Amy Sullivan.
We live in a country where “journalists” spend a lot of time tracking the church-going habits of our president. Sometimes I think I’d be happier living in Spain under Franco. The food would probably be better and otherwise the general atmosphere would be about the same.
