Obama’s faith

/ 14 March 2008

Well, it’s probably not surprising that the pastor of the church in which Obama is a member has come under attack. And it’s probably also not surprising that some of that pastor’s previous words have come home to roost in bad ways. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve had to try and explain to people why I’m still a Catholic, given what various church leaders have said. But rather than focus on that, I’d rather point to two nice things that have come out of this brouhaha — a lovely introduction to the incoming senior pastor at the Obamas’ church, and a partial transcript of another one of Barack Obama’s statements on faith.
