Obama and the Church

If a man can't stand up for his own religious principles as he proclaims them to be, what use are his politics?

US President Obama asked Catholic university Georgetown to cover up its religious symbols before he spoke there (click here for the story). As US Catholic League president Bill Donohue rightly put it:

“The cowardice of Georgetown to stand fast on principle tells us more than we need to know about what is going on there, but the bigger story is the audacity of the Obama administration to ask a religious school to neuter itself before the president speaks there." He added, "Obama is in enough trouble with Catholics—over his pro-abortion executive orders and appointees, his position on embryonic stem cell research and his war on the conscience rights of healthcare workers—that it seems almost suicidal for his administration to push the envelope one more time. This is getting old fast.”
