"[Conservative leaders] need to understand the critical role that the separation of church and state has played in preserving not only our democracy, but the robustness of our religious practice. Folks tend to forget that during our founding, it wasn't the atheists or the civil libertarians who were the most effective champions of the First Amendment. It was the persecuted minorities, it was Baptists like John Leland…It was the forbearers of the evangelicals who were the most adamant about not mingling government with religion, because they did not want state-sponsored religion hindering their ability to practice their faith…" – Sen. Barack Obama – Call to Renewal Keynote Address

    Obama said that? Well then, I am definitely going to vote for him! I preferred Hilary Clinton and I had many doubts about Obama, but recently, since my option to vote Clinton ended, I'm beginning to see that Obama is a very intelligent candidate! Would John "Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran" McCain ever make such a pithy comment as this? I think not!
