Is it incorrect to say "Bible" when stating Bible passages?


President Obama references "scripture" regarding Connecticut massacre. Was he afraid people would get offended if he said "Bible?"

    Organized you know I was wondering too if he was trying to be inclusive. I wondered if he knew something about the beliefs of the families. After 911 there were complaints by atheists about the prayer vigil at the White House.

    He was clearly shaken. I'm sure he is always concerned about his own kids because of his job.

    I noticed that the commentater said at the end of addresses like this, the president says, "God bless America ......." He didn't say it this time. I wonder if there was a reason the commentator mentioned it.

    I live in the Chicago area. I can't believe people still think the president is a Muslim! During the 2008 election he was attacked for being a (20 year) member of Jeremiah Wright's church: Trinity United Church of Christ. That is NOT a Muslim mosque!
