State of the Union

January 28, 2011

The current issue of The Breeze, the James Madison University student newspaper, includes an article with some of my comments about President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address earlier this week. The focus of my thoughts is about how Obama did rhetorically. On a related note, Obama offered a couple of comments in his speech that highlight the religious diversity of our nation:

American Muslims are a part of our American family.

... Our troops ... are are Christian and Hindu, Jewish and Muslim.
These brief comments are yet another hint that Obama--who often employs the language of our era of confessional politics--also sees some problems with confessional politics.
