In 2008, all religious Christian symbols were removed or covered for his Notre Dame and Georgetown visit. But, at this event no such measures were necessary. Freedom of religious expression at the mosque. But not at those Universities. Interesting! ?
Wow coming from the man who leads the most fear-mongering administration in our history. Didn’t he criticize people in the Midwest for clinging to religion?
I wonder why he changed his mind.I am getting very sick of politicians who only make references to God and religion when it can score some political points. Obama does it all the time and even some of our candidates are doing it. Your walk with God is personal.
BARACK OBAMA: Fear does funny things. Fear can lead us to lash out against those who are different, or lead us to try to get some sinister other under control. Alternatively, fear can lead us to succumb to despair or paralysis or cynicism. Fear can feed our most selfish impulses and erode the bonds of community.
It is a primal emotion, fear. One that we all experience. And it can be contagious, spreading through societies and through nations. And if we let it consume us, the consequences of that fear can be worse than any outward threat. For me — and I know for so many of you — faith is the great cure for fear. Jesus is a good cure for fear. God gives believers the power, the love, the sound mind required to conquer any fear. And what more important moment for that faith than right now?
If some of these politicians would think about God before they pass these bills hurting the American people, we might be in a better place.
