Barack Obama, Religion and Government

A reasoned case for the separation of church and state. Imagine having a president who makes sense instead of sound bites.

I feel so hopeful and so positive listening to this clip. I could truly cry - because of the gratitude I feel for this man and his beautiful words. Thank you, Jill, for posting. For anyone interested, it looks like the full speech is posted here, in 5 parts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tdoQr3BQ1g&feature=related

Namaste. May we all go the way of Peace.

Laura, thanks so much for the link to the full speech. Isn't it nice to have a leader behave like we're actually competent enough to grasp a nuanced train of thought?

And how long has it been since we've been inspired to reach for our higher selves instead of being encouraged to grasp at our baser instincts of fear and deprivation? I dare to hope. I dare to hope.
