Talking the F-word (Faith): To Obama's progressive supporters, I say...

Nya, nya, nya, nya, nyaaaa!!

By now you've possibly heard this portion (or a portion thereof) of a 2006 Obama speech. The entire text can be found at Obama's site.

Here's the juicy part:

"But what I am suggesting is this - secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering into the public square. Frederick Douglas, Abraham Lincoln, Williams Jennings Bryant (sic), Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King - indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history - were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause. So to say that men and women should not inject their 'personal morality' into public policy debates is a practical absurdity. Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition."

Oh, my. Oh, oh, my.

So, progressive Obama fans, starting to regard B.O. as less cool, maybe? Less of a spokesperson for your views?

Yes? No?

Ohhhhhh, I had no idea things would get this entertaining this quickly.
