Yesterday President Obama attended the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. While there, he spoke about his path to Christianity and the importance of faith in his family life. He then quoted passages from the Quran and the Torah to underscore a point about the universality of the "golden rule." He also spoke approvingly of Buddhists, Hindus, followers of Confucius, humanist, and agnostics. (When Bush spoke last year, he did not praise any of these groups.)
Dr. Frank S. Page, former president of the Southern Baptist Convention had these things to say after the breakfast:
--"[Obama] was not my first choice for president." We figured.
--About the Quran reference, "I would rather that had been left off." Of course.
