Obama uses Christian rhetoric uncriticized by the mainstream media

Obama says being president has deepened his Christian faith

I don’t understand how Obama is given a free pass to invoke the name of God and/or his Christian faith, when just a few years ago the mainstream media and most Dems were agast at any reference to Christian faith in our leaders.  Isn’t he a federal employee?  Isn’t there a separation of church and state?  (despite mainstream media insistence, this isn’t in the Constitution)  Wasn’t the left up in arms about Bush’s identification with Christianity, because it sent the wrong message to the world…that we are a Christian nation?  Now Obama can say that what matters is being true to ourselves and true to God and not what others say about us?  Once again, where was his defence of Bush when people, wait he was one of them, were saying all sorts of bad things about Bush?  This is such blatant one sidedness. 

This article also shows how the mainstream media gets in their bias.  Look at the reference to “conservative bloggers and talk radio hosts” in the first quote.

“But because his Kenyan father was born a Muslim, his middle name is Hussein, and he spent years in Muslim-majority Indonesia as a child, millions of Americans — particularly Republicans fueled by conservative bloggers and talk radio hosts — suspect he is secretly Muslim, according to several polls.”

“We are reminded that, ultimately, what matters is not what other people say about us, but whether we’re being true to our conscience and true to our God.”

He also stressed that in today’s “bitterly polarized” politics, “it’s useful to go back to scripture to remind ourselves that none of us has all the answers.”
