Questioning Mr. Obama’s Motives

In Pilgrim’s Progress, Christian responds to the men of the world saying,

“A Person who takes up religion to gain the world is a thief, a liar, a robber, a cheat, a Judas, a hypocrite who will throw religion away for the world – just as Judas sold his Lord for thiry pieces of silver (Pilgrim’s Progress: In Today’s English, Bunyan/Thomas).”

Are we seeing in Barack Obama the same flippant use of religion? A Willingness to pick it up and engage for the sake of political influence and credibliity, while willing to throw it away for the sake of political influence and credibility?
