I like it. Place man in his place regardless of his title/station and give honor to HIM who is FIRST and ABOVE all. I hope people would learn a thing or two from King Salman's action — God comes first and should at all times. Everything else comes a distant second.

If it s just the welcome ceremony he left him alone, then it is not a big deal. If it was an important meeting instead, then it would be the opposite. Obama is a busy man. He can not waste any time and it is really disrespectful towards him.

It's not disrespectful. Hussein Obama himself knows more about Islam than he'd like to admit. So I'm certain that he understood.

If he is okay with delaying a meeting, then it is alright. I just do not think he has made a long way to Saudi Arabia for getting put on hold.

What meeting? The welcome ceremony doesn't count as one, does it?

I'm sure when the King's meetings with foreign leaders are scheduled in such way that there's no conflict of interest between matters of the state and matters of the heart/soul.

Well there must have been some reason why Obama has travelled there, right? And the most reasonable thing is because of a meeting.

He was out there to offer his condolences. That's the main reason he was in Saudi Arabia.

"President Barack Obama will lead a delegation to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to offer condolences to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abd al-Aziz Al Saud, on the passing of the King Abdullah bin Abd al-Aziz."

I am sure President Obama did not mind that the King was practicing his religion in his country while he was mourning. He was their on the behalf of America to offer condolences not for pride or ego. Even if it was more formal, I would still expect the King to pray.
