Obama: Democrats Must Court Evangelicals

WaPo Sen. Barack Obama chastised fellow Democrats on Wednesday for failing to "acknowledge the power of faith in the lives of the American people," and said the party must compete for the support of evangelicals and other churchgoing Americans.

One good way to do that would be to stop supporting every secular plan they can think of, and opposing every faith based plan or even statement someone might make.
"Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation.
I can't think of ANY mention of God in public that is a breach to the supposed wall of separation (which does not appear anywhere in the Constitution)
Context matters," the Illinois Democrat said in remarks to a conference of Call to Renewal, a faith-based movement to overcome poverty.
