Obama: Good president, bad theologian

Barack ObamaRandallstown

There are those with strong religious convictions who have expressed outrage at President Barack Obama's support of same-sex unions. Some have opined that Mr. Obama's stance makes him unsuited to continue to lead this country. I would argue that his unbiblical view of marriage merely makes him a poor candidate for Bible study moderator.

As to aspects germane to Mr. Obama's qualifications for the presidency — commander in chief; leader of the Free World and guardian of domestic security and prosperity — I submit he has demonstrated a high level of competence. I would hope voters will respect the intent of the Founding Fathers to keep separate matters of state from matters of religion. That is in the Bible too.
