Obama reads Psalms 46 at NYC 9/11/11 Memorial

I missed this yesterday.  Very strange indeed to hear him speak the words  “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”

Note 09.16.14, I see this video has been taken down but here’s a link to another

 I am assuming that he himself chose to read Psalm 46, but he does not seem all that comfortable reading it, with all the halts and the hisses at the end of words.

Yes, he did choose the Psalm himself.  Here’s his reason:

WASHINGTON–President Obama read Psalm 46 at the New York ceremony Sunday marking the tenth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks. Principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest explained why Obama selected that psalm. “The President chose a scripture which he believed was most appropriate — he believed it was particularly appropriate to use — to read scripture this morning. And he chose a passage that talks of persevering through very difficult challenges and emerging from those challenges stronger,” Earnest said.http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2011/09/why_obama_picked_psalm_46_to_r.html

Alrighty then.  Now we know.  The People’s Cube weighs in:  http://thepeoplescube.com/peoples-blog/obama-is-god-t7794.html  Posted:  09.12.11 @ 9:57 a.m.

“He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.”
