Obama campaign releases ad citing moral, Biblical foundation for policies
The Obama campaign on Saturday quietly released a web video featuring President Obama talking about his faith. The video includes various faith leaders describing how there is moral, even Biblical, backing for his policies on issues ranging from higher taxes for top earners to health care to the auto bailout.
The video opens with the president at the National Prayer Breakfast where he says, “In my moments of prayer, I’m reminded that faith and values play an enormous role in motivating us to solve some of our most urgent problems.”
Woven throughout the video are statements by persons of faith including, Bishop Vashti McKenzie, Professor Catholic Studies Stephen Schneck, and Rabbi Samuel Gordon…
“President Barack Obama is leading with faith values,” McKenzie says. “It comes from this basic core belief that when one part suffers, every part every part suffers, it’s deeply religious belief, it comes out of the scriptures,” said Pastor Kerr.
