Obama on Religion

Michael Gerson in today's Washington Post had a great opening to a rather bland column about Senator Obama's attempt to address religiosity, the Democrat Party and Obama's own positioning in "The Gospel of Obama":

When British author Hilaire Belloc ran for Parliament in 1906, his speech on religion and politics, given to a packed public meeting, went as follows: "Gentlemen, I am a Catholic. As far as possible, I go to Mass every day. This is a rosary. As far as possible, I kneel down and tell these beadsevery day. If you reject me on account of my religion, I shall thank God that he has spared me the indignity of being your representative."

Just a great quote.
