Obama to create faith-based office
WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama said Thursday he will establish a White House office of faith-based initiatives that will show no favoritism to any religious group and adhere to the strict separation of church and state.
Addressing the National Prayer Breakfast, Obama spoke of how faith has often been a divisive tool, responsible for war and prejudice. But, he said, "there is no religion whose central tenet is hate. There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being," and all religions teach people to love and care for one another.
On first glance, the story above is straightforward enough, but look out for two important qualifying words. They are "central" and "innocent".
But let´s not be too hard on God. He´s only human.
Una doggin´it on three legs. What a player. World´s greatest pooch.
