Testimony: President Obama addresses a group of guests at the home of Andy Cavalier on Tuesday in Albuquerque, N.M.
Hey everyone, let the record show that our president is “Christian by choice.” Just in time for the midterm election season, President Obama made a personal statement Tuesday at an event in Albuquerque, N.M., putting the kibosh on those pesky e-mail rumors about his chosen faith. —KA
The Huffington Post:
President Barack Obama, in a rare discussion about his religious beliefs, described himself on Tuesday as a “Christian by choice” who arrived at his faith in adulthood because “the precepts of Jesus Christ” helped him envision the kind of life he wanted to lead.
Obama talked about his beliefs when he was asked, “Why are you a Christian.” The question was posed by a woman at a backyard conversation here, part of a series of meetings Obama is holding to talk informally with Americans.
