Obama mocks “In God We Trust”

Obama mocked Republicans in congress for discussing the motto, “In God We Trust”. And in doing so, he invoked (with no sense of irony whatsoever) the medieval conception of justification, quod in se est (“God helps those who help themselves”). His actual phrase was “God wants to see us help ourselves by putting people back to work”.


  1. The Prophet has spoken, selah.

    Good to know the POTUS has a hotline to the Almighty whereby he receives direct, unmediated special revelation straight from the mind of the Triune One true and living God.

    That is unless he was referring to another god, which is at least plausible.

  2. Actually he was most likely speaking in third person about himself.
