Obama Invokes God, Conservatives Cry Foul

Topix Staff Story

President Obama emphasized his Christian beliefs at this year's annual National Prayer Breakfast in. D.C. reports Laura MacInnis at Reuters. Citing his faith as his motivation for his support for higher taxes on the wealthy, Obama had this to say:

"But for me as a Christian, it also coincides with Jesus' teaching that 'for unto whom much is given, much shall be required,'"
But conservatives are crying foul. As David Nakamura and Michelle Boorstein of the Washington Post tell us,

Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition said that for the president to tie his tax policy to Jesus’s teachings “is theologically threadbare and straining credulity.”

Former GOP presidential contender Rick Perry has criticized the president for his "war on religion." Then again, it wasn't long ago that Obama was being called out by groups like Americans United for Separation of Church and State for referencing God more often than his predecessor, George W. Bush.

What do you think? Is Obama right to bring God into election year, should he keep faith out of it? Or is he even sincere?

Well... they have to put someone up.

Otherwise they look like they don't know what they're doing (which, btw, they do!)

Let me know when you find anything in the Constitution that requires the POTUS to release his or her school records.

Of course, you will want to first post us Herman Cain's school records.
