Obama on how his religious beliefs would impact his administration…interesting read.

Posted on: October 30, 2007

“My faith informs my values,” Obama said. “Part of the reason I believe it’s important to help those in need is because of my faith. But I am a strong believer that the founding fathers put separation of church and state in place for a reason. … Not only to prevent the state from being taken over by one church and forcing people to worship in a particular way, but also to protect the church – or synagogue or mosque or temple – from undue influence by the government. And I think there have been times during this administration when maybe those lines have gotten blurred and made people with different faiths or no faith at all uncomfortable.”
