(RNS) The president has spoken in vague and broad terms about faith, but he has good reason to change that now.

    President Obama was baptized in the United Church of Christ, as a young man while he was working as a community organizer in Chicago. He has talked about how he came to faith as he watched the Christians he was working with as an organizer…what is it, he asked that gave them the confidence and boldness to take on the issues they were trying to resolve. It was after he learned that it was their faith that gave them courage, he decided to seek out and understand this faith. That is what led him to baptism. The UCC is a mainline Protestant denomination, in fellowship with Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian churches (among others)

    Personally speaking I’m glad Obama keeps his religious faith private. That’s kind of the way it should be. I voted for him to be commander in chief, not pastor in chief. I voted for Obama to help improve our lives, not because I want to know how many angels he thinks can balance on a needle.

    He is the president of the US, which includes Catholics, protestants, Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, atheists and agnostic. I am glad he is keeping his faith private. That’s good advice for everyone. Live your faith but shut up about it in public.
