This is stirring a lot of heat. What Obama should be doing is inserting 'Thanking God' back in the Thanksgiving Address. To do so would be respecting the founders traditions and heritage.President Washington thanked God in 1789. President Washington and all of the other Founders did everything they could to secure the blessings of God for our country. What Obama has done is shear blasphemy: For Fourth Straight Year, Obama's Thanksgiving Message Doesn't Thank God

You know what blasphemy means, right?

blas·phe·my(blsf-m)
n. pl. blas·phe·mies 1. a. A contemptuous or profane act, utterance, or writing concerning God or a sacred entity.
b. The act of claiming for oneself the attributes and rights of God.

2. An irreverent or impious act, attitude, or utterance in regard to something considered inviolable or sacrosanct.

Obama did not commit blasphemy, in anyone's definition of the word.

Why should it?

It's not real or heinous.

Simply more feigned outrage from the whiners.

Not mentioning God is not blasphemy.

I'm not a big Obama guy, but why should he thank god in his Thanksgiving address? And, if he does, how does that make the speech any more effective? How is it even relevant?

The idea of god and religion is a somewhat divisive concept here in the US, and I think a Thanksgiving free of any sort of White House-sponsored religious addresses would be a good thing.
