Hallelujah: Obama Goes to Church

Yesterday, President Obama and his family attended services at St. John's Episcopal Church, across the street from the White House. If he went more frequently, perhaps fewer Americans would think he is a Muslim. If his handlers are paying attention, they will also instruct him to attend the Red Mass at St. Matthew's Cathedral on Oct.3. A picture - of him walking out of the Cathedral arm-in-arm with the archbishop - is worth a thousand words. (H/T to Ben Smith at Politico.)
