E pluribus buffoonum? Congress slams Obama
By Bob Unruh|WorldNetDaily
Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus have written to President Obama asking him to correct a speech he gave in Indonesia incorrectly replacing the nation’s motto of “In God We Trust” with “E pluribus unum.”
The letter also cites a series of situations in which Obama has failed to include the reference to the “Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence.
WND has reported on numerous situations where the president’s quotations have left out references to God or the Creator.
In the newest development, U.S. Rep. J. Randy Forbes of Virginia and 42 bipartisan members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus have dispatched a letter over Obama’s statement to a Jakarta audience that “E Pluribus unum” is the national motto.
Actually, it’s “In God We Trust.”
“For the president of the United States to incorrectly state something as foundational as our national motto in another country is unacceptable,” said Forbes. “The president is the primary representative of our nation to the world, and whether mistake or intention, his actions cast aside an integral part of American society.”
He said, “President Reagan once warned that ‘If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.'”
It was during Obama’s expedition to the Far East when he went to Jakarta on Nov. 10.
