The Common Good

Who says Obama hates religion, and why

Date: February 23, 2012


Less than two years later, Obama gave a speech about religion that established that he did not despise worship. The setting was a conference in Washington, D.C. put on by the progressive Christian magazine Sojourners. Excerpts from his keynote address are reprinted in today's Sentinel to provide readers a glimpse of the president’s views about religion in American society — views that are consistent with spirit of tolerance and respect for people of all faiths — and also no faith — for which this nation is known.
