    My greater question is when someone like Rev Graham is ASKED A QUESTION and then he DARES to actually ANSWER the question honestly in a way that is actually SUPPORTIVE of Obamas own representation of himself as a Christian, why do so many people freak out AT Rev Grahams response? Just what is it about what he said or the article in general that is even worthy of ANY of this?

    Maybe you can answer the question of why Obama's religion matters?

    Obama and "Muslim" in anyway that might imply some how he is/was/has ties too creates a PC firestorm of indignation by people "Above such partisan hackery". Or, as I like to view it, self-righteous elitism.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    It helps explain how he thinks and what he believes in. It's a way for people to get to know a person they only see on TV.

    Remember the "Palin's CRAZY CHURCH" crap? Don't recall many here defending Obama jumping to Palin's D... but then it's OKAY to attack her

    I think it has been shown that there is a wide spectrum of belief under the tent of Islam, much like there is under the tent of Christianity.

    And no, I don't remember the Palin church thing, but I don't doubt that it happened. It's no more justified than any other criticism of religion, in my opinion, so long as that religion does not affect policy. If it does, I think the door has been opened for legitimate criticism.

    "...[D]oing the Lord's work is a thread that's run through our politics since the very beginning.

Imagine Lincoln's Second Inaugural without its reference to 'the judgments of the Lord.' Or King's 'I Have a Dream' speech without its reference to 'all of God's children.' Or President Kennedy's Inaugural without the words, 'here on Earth, God's work must truly be our own.' At each of these junctures, by summoning a higher truth and embracing a universal faith, our leaders inspired ordinary people to achieve extraordinary things."


    do you know who said that?
