    This is important. Does everyone remember the last event and the Prez pretty much said, you can challenge me in terms of my politics, but do not challenge my faith.

      I loved that moment, but it was so sad, too. i realized that some of this crap really does affect him deeply.

    It is un-American to demand allegiance to a particular faith, or any faith at all, is it not? President Obama’s faith should not even be a topic of discussion. Shame on those “rill-Amerikuns”.

    Greetings everyone, it’s a new day! Hi Chipsticks, hope the sun is shining in your corner of the world this morning! [Don’t know why I’m so cheery – must be because I’ve made it to my favourite blogs early, for a change. :)]

    Me, I like the fact that the President is not only a religious man, but that he expresses his faith calmly while not trying to push it down the country’s throat. I also respect him for not going out of his way to hide his beliefs. IMO, living your faith as he does is a more effective way of ‘witnessing’ to others than expounding on it.

    Love your wife (& children) ….. check
    Do good to those who despitefully use you ….. check
    Care for the sick and needy ….. check
    Be slow to anger ….. check
    Do unto others as you would they do to you ….. check … you get the picture!

    This makes a much greater impact on me than the Ensigns, Gingriches, and Limbaughs of this world. I agree with you Sue, the President’s faith shouldn’t be an issue; however, it enters the discussion because the other side makes such a lot of noise about faith etc, yet can’t seem to live it out. The President is living his, and I sure hope the contrast becomes more and more apparent to those of their number who are ‘true believrs’.

      VCprez, I wholeheartedly agree. He is a “real” Christian by all those attributes you named. He practices faithfully everyday, and is a much better one than I, so I try to take my qeues from him. A fine example. Those others you spoke of are miscreants at best and do an injustice to the name of Jesus. To their demise, they do not heed the teachings, so justice is eminently divine.

    He’s going to be in my state today, and I wish I can get a load of that motorcade, but I’m stuck at work. I saw him in October last year, once before the general election in ’08, and attended a rally in early ’08, with no view of him. But I really want to see that awesome motorcade live. I’m like a little kid for things like this..especially when it contains a “rock star”. Oh yeah, that’s what President Obama is. The haters had it right, thank’s very much. 😀

      Sorry you can’t get to see the motorcade up close, EDP (sometimes adult responsibility is a pain, isn’t it?). Maybe, you’ll get lucky during the 2012 campaign.

    In this president, I see an amazing human being. That’s more than I can say for the lot of others who claim to be carriers of the flame of Christianity.

    He inspires me.
