Oh alright, thought he was saying he was.

Heh-heh. No worries bud. Yes, I meant he was speaking to the Latinos that this largely affects and they came out in droves for him in 2008 and 2012, so he's paying it forward for 2016.

I mean this is his second term so I think it is more for his look now.

Nah, he wants to stick it to the Republicans and give his party a chance to rally in 2016.

Why is a Christian quoting Christian scripture? We will answer this and more right after we tell you why the Pope is Catholic!

I wouldn't get too hung up over it.

He could quote anyone who ever said anything inspiring, just because it's from the bible doesn't mean he's favouring Christianity over any other world view...

If we're going to accept the bible as an influential piece of literature, then we mustn't go freaking out every time a politician or public figure quotes it... I mean, no one would take issue if Obama quoted the Iliad.

Just because it's mythological doesn't mean it doesn't contain poetic or profound passages.

If you think Obama is a Christian you seriously misunderestimate (thanks Dubya!) the man's intellect and guile. He's not our first atheist President, that distinction goes to fatass Taft . But Obama is our first AntiChrist President. Silly goose.
