Exactly. The constitution prohibits a test for religion as a requirement for public office. In other words our president can be of any faith, or no faith at all. We have a secular government.
I think that for some of our "good leaders" their practice of their faith was one aspect of their confidence in and example of their leadership, and that many of the founding fathers of our republic exemplified that aspect.
It was the founding fathers that wrote article 6 of the constitution which says that there is no religious test required for office.
The constitution does not dictate what I care about. It is not about a test it is about what I want in a leader. So I care.
Eric: Then recognize the importance of "voting" because we elect officials into office who "prevents" Presidents from doing as they desire! Remember Obama was Social Worker prior to his presidency (for the people)!

It was in the news recently that he has "private" services in the White House. In some ways, his attending church might become a "spectator sport" to the curious if he attended church, simply because he is black.

He is still a Christain no matter how many times you repeat the lie that he isn't. This rumor is apparently never going to die. Fortunately, Obama does his job in spite of all the judgemental ignorant people that try to keep spreading these stories.
If you're a christian I just wish he isn't. And btw, who cares.
Islandbites, you are right. It doesn't matter what his religion is or isn't. Apparently, the only people who care are the ones that keep trying to spread false rumors about our president. He's not a Kenyan either, but some people won't listen.
He attended Occidental College, Columbia, and Harvard Law. He could not have practiced law at several prestigious firms, or taught constitutional law at University of Chicago, without attending college and obtaining degrees.
How do you know what someone's faith really is unless you know them? I know plenty of Christians who don't attend church regularly. Aren't you guys supposed to be a welcoming, accepting bunch?
No, Aime, they are a judgmental hateful bunch!
I'm not Aime & neither is Pres Obama (Social Worker/Pentecostal)! Unfortunately, he has to remain "politically correct" which Joshua DuBois affords! He was assoc w/Church of Christ until "conflict!"Now, DuBois(ex-White House) "pol corr!" GOD no
