Obama cast as 'Comforter-in-Chief'
President Obama arrived in Newtown on Sunday evening to meet family members of the victims and to speak at an interfaith vigil at Newtown High School. A large number of young children with their parents as well as many other people have started filing into the high school auditorium for the vigil.

For the fourth time in his four years as president, Obama will lead awful rituals of mass death and national grief. Obama made similar visits to Fort Hood, Tex., in 2009, Tucson in 2011 and Aurora, Colo., this July — each time, in the aftermath of a gunman’s spree. Obama has tended to focus on emotion and healing in these moments, touching only lightly on the subject of guns and gun control.

Now, however, Obama will face a new and higher level of pressure from advocates of gun control, saying that this time, he must do more than simply grieve. ...

Yes, and a bitter harvest it is.

We will probably need to find a transcript of the President's speech to verify which Scriptures he used, but I think he also quoted or alluded to one in the New Testament. The problem was he then told how we as people need to unite, etc. His theology is that we can somehow overcome evil with no mention of serving Jesus Christ. His background is the apostate United Church of Christ, if anyone cares to research what he was taught at Jeremiah Wright's church in Chicago; it is a Christ-less gospel of humanism and stinks to high Heaven.

Good comments, Angela, on another thread I made a mistake that President Obama took a quotation from the New Testament, but it was rather than the Old Testament.

Psalm 147
3 He heals the brokenhearted, And binds up their wounds.---NASB

that President Obama quoted. A short commentary on that:

Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary wrote:
Psalms 147:3:

3. Though applicable to the captive Israelites, this is a general and precious truth.
wounds—(Compare Margin). [Which is in Hebrew, sorrows]

Anyway, it was a proper quotation for President Obama to use.

But Presidents, past and present, have considered comforting as part of their duties.

I agree with all the previous comments and want to point out that while I was sincerely praying for the President as he made his remarks last night and for the Lord's comfort for the parents/loved ones of those slain; I was extremely disappointed that instead of telling the audience to turn to the Lord Jesus Christ for strength and comfort, he gave a false gospel of humanism.

We love in dark days and have been for a while. The complete disconnect of abortion and mass shootings. The utter sexualization of everything in culture and "anything goes" mentality is bearing fruit. But the problem is that we do not have enough laws?! Double standard. We want our hedonism and order, our bloodlust and peace, live like Hell but demand Heaven. You cannot serve two masters.

My sympathies for all the people that lost loved ones in Newtown.
However I have trouble with the double standard in this country. Innocent killing is sanctioned in Washington through endless wars on innocent people. Our society sanctions the murder of innocent unborn babies by the millions. We live with killing 24 hours a day by our media through cartoons and through shows that glorify killing.
Further more we kick God out of our institutions from Gov to schools and wonder why he's not protecting us.
The hypo racy of our culture is appalling and quit frankly disturbing. Any sane person can see the seeds have been sown and the crop is ripe for harvest. One final thought! Who cries for the innocent people Americans have killed around the world...Who!
