    Obama examples why the uS government is not, and will never be a religious institution.It's buildings are not even religious ones. Segregation had a tendency to cause disagreement or hostility between many groups of people of color, etc....alienating women and children totally.
    Ireland found some stability just looking at everyone's children harmed during their conflict...the uS will not ever look at anything but the results they get from being in the follow of a coin...which is usually financial or territorial gain, plus casting themselves as great and wise men in all the news media.
    Prestigious people do not always have a great job descriptions...religious people are naturally used to that type actor.

    Amazing words from the most "divisive" president in our history. Does anyone remember what the country went through to desegregate schools? Children were put on buses and sent miles away from home to go to school because to Democrats that was "fair." And now we have many in the black population who want to have black children taught by black teachers only. But that's not segregation, is it?

    Obama is about the most divisive person the world has ever know. For a liberal he sure doesn't believe in liberty. Look at the USA after what Obama has done. A nation divided.
    He's a hypocrite!

    When it comes to unifying our Nation, Mr. Obama has done everything but. Besides what the article lists, above, the FDA has approved the "morning after" pill for girls of all ages and, I believe, accessible without requiring parental approval in the case of minors. Wow. What a moral disaster of a Presidency. The trouble in the US is that there is not a more reasonable candidate in sight.
    We must pray as hard as possible to change this man's heart and mind, as well as, the hearts and minds of the citizens who so rabidly support him.

    "The pot is calling the kettle black". President B.O. Is the very definition of the word divisive.
