So, what's our takeaway on this? Normally everything about the DN seeks to put christianity in a good light, no matter how tenuous or absurd the connection, but that runs in direct contradiction to the other editorial policy, which can be summed up as 'everything about President Obama is wrong'. My opinion is that, these days, all presidents and indeed every elected official down to dog catcher has to pass the religious test of office, and affirm belief in fairy tales, and faith in scoundrels and scofflaws, and call it christianity.

I admire President Obama's integrity and love for others. It is easy to see he has a soft heart. He is a great father and husband. And a fine role model for America's youth.

Most religious people do not carry around a poster or otherwise publish their beliefs. But they live in a way that reveals their standards and love of God and mankind. The president is just such a person.

“The president is a Christian, a committed Christian, and so am I,” Dubois explained to Time.

Hmmmm. I wonder if these "committed" Christians share the belief that children who survive attempts to kill them through abortion should be left to die. Considering the voting record of Barack Obama as a senator, that is surely his belief.

From this story one must conclude that the comfort of Christianity (whatever that actually means to Obama) is something he's grateful to receive for himself but loathe to consider for any child who happens to commit the crime of being unborn and unwanted.

Do you recall how at this time last year, and all that summer of 2012, the POTUS and family were photographed regularly attending various church services; something we had not seen in all of their previous 3.5 years in the White House? Remember that? Since then, I don’t believe we’ve seen the Obamas, even on Christmas or Easter, attend any worship service.

Gee. Could it have been those pesky Romneys and their weekly habit of worshipping at church that caused such a change in the Obamas’ behavior??

Hmmmm?

Seems to me that this sort of hypocrisy trumps the nightly reading of scriptures mingled with the philosophy of men. But maybe it’s just me…

@samhill
What you're talking about is something that was already illegal in Illinois when Obama voted against a bill. He voted against it because he didn't like the other potential ramifications of the bill.

He has the smile down pat. As far as having a heart or keeping his word?
