On the Sunday before the MLK holiday, the first family visited Metropolitan A.M.E church just a few blocks away from the White House. This is the second time the Obamas have visited the predominantly black church which extended an offer of membership to the first family.
The Metropolitan congregation stood and applauded when President Obama, the first lady and the first tweens took their seats.
This might be unusual activity for Obama to attend church again within a short period of time. I do not recall if a year ago if Obama attended church the day before that travesty of a legal holiday honoring a Communist like King Jr.
