I’ll be honest: I’m not a huge fan of the National Prayer Breakfast. It’s a privately sponsored event, but every year the president attends and there’s often a lot of talk about God and country. It seems like another example of the annoying “civil religion” that so plagues our nation.
President Barack Obama gave his personal testimony yesterday at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. Did you see it? What did you think?
I watched the address on a live stream from the White House website. It’s still there if you want to take it in for yourself.
Obama’s message was deeply personal and overtly Christian. I guess he’s been falsely accused of being a Muslim so much that he feels obligated to make that point pretty bluntly one more time.
The infamous evangelical Christian organization, “The Family” is making headlines again.
According to Roll Call newspaper, several members of Congress have accepted just over $101,000 worth of free international travel from The Family, also known as the Fellowship Foundation. The group footed the bill for 13 foreign trips, ostensibly so congressmen could meet and pray with political leaders in other countries.
