Yet Obama has made a point of courting evangelical Christians. A speech he delivered to a Christian group at a Washington church last June was described by the Washingtonian magazine as “perhaps the most important dissection of the role of faith made by any Democratic politician in half a century”.
In a bestselling new memoir, The Audacity of Hope, and in numerous television interviews, he has urged his Democratic colleagues not to “avoid the conversation about religious values”.
He said recently: “I think we make a mistake when we fail to acknowledge the power of faith in people’s lives. We need to understand that Americans are a religious people. Substantially more Americans believe in angels than in evolution.”

he said that a long time ago when he was talking to progressives, someone even had the video on here way back in the early part of the dem primaries. So I guess the answer is no he hasn't changed his mind, it's been a part of his outreach efforts for the past 20 months..

Acknowledging the power of faith is exactly what is going on here.... I see people acknowledging it as something that fundamentally affects someone mentally and physically... and then determining whether or not that affect is positive, negative, or even acceptable....

I did. And i do. And i'm waiting anxiously for some of my brethren to come and castigate Obama with the same ferver and fire that they held Palin accountable for.

Seems some people think Seperation of Church and State is absolute and uncompromising....well, let's see 'em defend that now.:rolleyes:
