Obama’s Creed

Print More

CNS has posted Barack Obama’s response to a question at a town hall meeting in Ohio regarding his evangelical support. Most attention has been given to Obama’s discussion of homosexuality, in which he bases his support for civil unions on the Sermon on the Mount rather than “an obscure passage in Romans.” (See here for a review of the discussion by GetReligion’s Mollie.) Obama caught some flak from Marc Ambinder for citing a scriptural basis for his position, but I fail to see how that’s out of bounds in a question about his religion.
