Obama: Christian Right Drives People Apart

We posted this clip Fox News (via YouTube) back in February, but it seems very timely again.

It features a portion of Mr. Obama’s address to the United Church of Christ’s 50th Anniversary General Synod in Hartford, CT, on June 23, 2007:

Barack Obama says Christian right has hijacked faith

“Somewhere along the way faith stopped being used to bring us together and started being used to drive us apart… Faith got hijacked partly because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, who’ve been all too eager to exploit what divides us. At every opportunity they’ve told Evangelical Christians that Democrats disrespect their values and dislike their church, while suggesting to the rest of the country that religious Americans care only about issues like abortion and gay marriage, school prayer and Intelligent Design.”

Isn’t irony ironic?
