    • honestly, do not care. His religious/spiritual preferences is no ones business. Honestly his ‘church’ has nothing to do with his presidency.

      Good ? Annie!

    • In the UK no one would care ladies - just because it’s a private issue - in all honesty don’t think our Prime Minster even attends church at all.

      Is this a issue in the US?

    • Makes no difference to me.  I doubt it’s cuz he’s “too busy” though.  Just my opinion.

    • My guess is that Pres. Obama knows that whatever choice he makes it will be second, third, and fourth guessed by Americans from all sides.  

      Jeremiah Wright’s angry sermons were so damaging to Obama- didn’t he publicly denounce the pastor/church he had claimed as his church home for 20 years?

      If he makes a “safe” (less controversial) choice for his church it will be seen, by many, as disingenuous and if he chooses one that has a tone similar to the Rev. Wright messages... well, that would just be (politically speaking) foolish!

    • Think about it. IMHO He has a lot to consider in choosing a church that meets the needs of his whole family. A church where the pastor will be able to preach with conviction just as before the President showed up in his congregation. I would probably be distracted if he showed up at my church, myself.tongue out

    • I feel sorry for the church he does finally select. I can only imagine the media scrutiny/disection it will have to endure.

    • I agree, Obama has many sensitive and varied issues to think about with his family before choosing a new church.  I can understand why it is taking so much time.

    • I feel the the religious aspect of his life did not become an issue until his so call pastor of twenty something years, Rev. Wright was exposed.  Then his family going to church was an issue.  I personally do not understand how you can attend a church for twenty years and not see and hear the foulmouth Rev. Wright.  I really do not comprehend that...but oh well.  

      I personally think he tried to make out being a church going individual for campaign purposes but then again...who am I to judge.  There are a lot of folks that go to church every Sunday just to say that went but don’t live a religious life (whatever your beliefs may be).  Then there are people who never go to a church and could be very religious in their own way.  All I know is...we all will have to answer to the one above for how we conduct ourselves on this earth.  Whatever he chooses to do is between him and the Lord.  

      But if I had to say...it was all for being elected.

    • Isn’t there something about separation of church and state?

      The presidency is not run by religion.
      Honestly, imho, it is not our business what he chooses, or if he chooses.

      We also have no clue what he thinks or thought of his former church as we are not mind readers. We do not know how he felt when all the hubbub arose.

      No matter what he chooses people are going to scorn him, and judge him.

      Sorry those that are doing the judging are not practicing their religion very well.

    • Our constitution provides protection for the citizens, through the separation of church and state, to worship
      (or not worship) as we choose.  

      I believe it is unreasonable to believe that the spiritual beliefs can be separated from the man who holds the office. Even if he was an atheist, he still has a belief/value system that will influence his decisions.

      What is interesting, and a bit scary to me, is that we make assumptions about a person’s capability, leadership ability, wisdom and discernment based upon their claim of a certain religious belief.  

      I know many educated Christian men of great faith, high intelligence,who live by a beautiful moral code who would be disastrous,grevious choices for President.  

      So, whatever President Obama’s beliefs are- they are. I doubt his affiliation with J. Wright is a full and accurate representation of Obama’s beliefs nor will his next church membership.  

      Whatever his beliefs are,rest assured that his decisions are driven by them. He is just a man.

    • I would be more concerned about something quickly selecting a church than someone taking time to select one. The church which one chooses to attend is a very personal and should be selective because how one chooses to express one’s belief’s is important and not in my eyes a quick choose, but one upon which one should reflect.
