This week, I have been thinking a lot about Barack Obama.
I have been thinking about Senator Obama and what it would mean for the United States if he gains the Democrat Presidential nomination and what it could mean if he wins the White House.
As a pro-life, libertarian-minded Republican, there are obviously many issues on which I do not agree with Senator Obama -- most notably on granting legal protection for unborn children.
But, I am ready to concede that he may be the best American orator of this generation. And, I have to say that his message of hope and the tone with which he is delivering that message do inspire with me. The possibility that this could be a "transformative" moment for our nation is important to consider.
Below is a video of a 40-minute speech Senator Obama delivered in 2006 on the crossroads of politics and faith. I do not agree with some of the things he says in his remarks but, for anyone who cares about faith and public policy, it may be a valuable thing to watch in order to learn more about the Senator's thinking in this area.
If you check it out, be sure to watch until the end when Senator Obama talks about correspondence he had with one pro-life doctor.
For your consideration:
