We Can Only Hope...

...that President Obama means what he said this morning.

“There is no doubt that the very nature of faith means that some of our beliefs will never be the same. We read from different texts. We follow different edicts. We subscribe to different accounts of how we came to be here and where we are going next—and some subscribe to no faith at all.

“But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenet is hate. There is no God who condones taking the life of an innocent human being. This much we know.”

The clip of him saying this keeps haunting me. I was home with my precious baby getting ready for work when I heard him say this for the first time and I began to yell at the television. Is it me who's insane?
