Just found out that Sen. Obama would seek to ban abortion because abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths, including those with no faith at all…
Inspired by Sen. Obama's inclusiveness, star quality, progressiveness, emanation of hope and change, not to mention his impeccable grasp of the reality that banning a perfectly safe and effective medical procedure is justified because it violates some nebulous universal principle, I think I might just sit out the upcoming presidential election.
Heh, I should've known. From the Obama site (via; emphasis in the original comment):
So let's rededicate ourselves to a new kind of politics - a politics of conscience. Let's come together - Protestant and Catholic, Muslim and Hindu and Jew, believer and non-believer alike. We're not going to agree on everything, but we can disagree without being disagreeable. We can affirm our faith without endangering the separation of church and state, as long as we understand that when we're in the public square, we have to speak in universal terms that everyone can understand. And if we can do that - if we can embrace a common destiny - then I believe we'll not just help bring about a more hopeful day in America, we'll not just be caring for our own souls, we'll be doing God's work here on Earth.
