Conservative ‘Christians’ Show No Class By Placing Obama Figurines In Urinals At Conference

Conservative ‘Christians’ Show No Class By Placing Obama Figurines In Urinals At Conference


This week in Washington, DC, the Freedom and Faith Coalition is holding their Road to Majority conference. Basically, this is a chance for conservative Christians to get together and discuss policy ideas as well as electoral strategy for 2014. This also happens to create an opportunity for Republicans from around the country to pander to the Religious Right in the hopes of gaining their support and approval ahead of the 2014 midterms and perhaps the 2016 Presidential election. Therefore, besides the usual suspects scheduled for an event like this, we also saw the likes of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) placed on the guest speaker list.

As one can only imagine, President Obama has not been well-received throughout the summit. Pretty much all of the speakers that appeared Thursday and Friday devoted large portions of their speeches criticizing the President and his policies. Rafael Cruz, the father of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), during a speech where he pitched Dominionism to the crowd, exclaimed “Stop voting for the village idiot!” Ralph Reed, who heads the Faith and Freedom Coalition, wants the American people to burn the IRS offices to the ground. Gary Bauer used his time at the podium to claim that President Obama will bring down America because he is obsessed with gay issues, which shows a stunning lack of self-awareness as Bauer has been publicly railing against homosexuality since the Reagan years.

With a large group of white conservative Christians gathered in a large hotel and whipped into an ideological frenzy over their mutual hatred of all things Obama, perhaps we shouldn’t have been surprised by the following action:


The Huffington Post sent Igor Bobic and Sam Stein to cover the event. Bobic discovered the figurine placed in the urinal. It was obviously done as a way to show total disrespect towards the President while being willfully offensive. Even the figurine itself appears to be a caricature of the President with at least a hint of stereotypically racial overtones. Besides witnessing this total lack of class on display, Bobic and Stein tweeted out the following observations Friday.  


As you can see, this is basically just another situation where Republicans get together, trash the President, say mildly to extremely offensive things and prove to sane people that they are really not serious about, well, pretty much anything. At least when it comes to finding solutions to real world problems.
