Obama is Putting Faith in the Middle

1 07 2008









Barack Obama has a problem – and that problem is that he believes the only way he can win in November is to pander to the middle.  Most recently, he has announced:

I’ll establish a new Council for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

If you’re thinking it is just a rename of the office of faith based initiatives, you’d be right.

Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, criticized Obama’s proposed expansion of a program he said has undermined civil rights and civil liberties.

“I am disappointed that any presidential candidate would want to continue a failed policy of the Bush administration,” he said. “It ought to be shut down, not continued.”

Obama says he will maintain the strict separation between church and state – but he is in pretty murky waters here.  You can read about this fiasco here.  Obama may think he has a better chance at getting elected if he finds ways of appealing to everyone.  I think that very few people respect someone without a spine.
