Did you know that a famous  U.S. Senator said in 2006, it is wrong to ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering the public square? He went on to say that not injecting ‘personal morality’ into public policy debates is a practical absurdity:

 …secularists are wrong when they ask believers to leave their religion at the door before entering the public square. Frederick Douglass, Abraham Lincoln, William Jennings Bryan, Dorothy Day, Martin Luther King—indeed, the majority of great reformers in American history—were not only motivated by faith, but repeatedly used religious language to argue for their cause. So to say that men and women should not inject their ‘personal morality’ into public policy debates is a practical absurdity. Our law is by definition a codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Juedo-Christian tradition.

Notice the observation about our law being a “codification of morality, much of it grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition.” He was a former law professor at the University of Chicago. He knows.

This Senator went on to become President of the United States. His name is Barack Obama.
