5. I do the 'sign of the cross' every time a see an accident or the life-flight chopper fly over. Do

not know if it 'conforms' with the official version...but that is just what I do.

6. Those guys can't take a joke at all, can they? Obama's not even Catholic...the cross was a jokester

type thing for the event, mimicking a priest absolving someone of sin. But he's not Catholic. It wasn't intended to be the real thing.

8. He's not Catholic, I don't see why anyone would be upset with him making the sign the way in


the tradition of the Eastern Orthodox church. Actually, if he were Catholic it still wouldn't matter. LOL

Ultimately the sign of the cross is a physical prayer and can be as individual as the person making it.

9. Such a normal thing to do

yet it won't be interpreted that way by the press or the vast wasteland of right wing conspiracy nuts.
Clearly the president is having fun with his family. The turkey is cracking them up. The presidents job, in this instance, is to absolve the turkey. What did the folks at the Examiner expect, the president to sign an official reprieve document, a presidential pardon? It would be no more serious an event. This is a silly tradition and a silly pardon is in order.
Bush "laying hands" on the bird was exactly the same thing. He was being silly too.

Now, Palin, interviewing for ten minutes, while turkeys were being slaughtered behind her, without batting an eye, was weird.
There was something vaguely Satanic about that scene.

11. No. Proof that he is a Protestant.

Having been raised a Protestant, I have no idea how you are supposed to do the sign of the cross.

She would have pardoned one turkey and personally slaughtered the other.

18. I knew that half assed fake genuflection would come back and bite him in the ass.

I'm just thankful it he did it post election, or we'd never hear the end of it.
