I support the separation of church and state, and am pretty sure that the President of the United States has no business quoting Exodus or any part of the Bible in an official speech.

On the other hand, contrary to what conspiracy theorists are sure to come up with soon if they haven’t already, this statement from president Obama has nothing to do with Roswell…

  • I don’t think separation of church and state means President Obama can’t speak from his own religious position or state his own religious views, even in an official speech, in support of why he makes a particular political decision. Everyone makes decisions from their own moral perspective, and there’s no sense in pretending neutrality when there’s no such thing.
