Obama on Religion

This video has been popping up on various atheist sites over the last several weeks. It is of Barack Obama, presumed Democratic presidential candidate, stating his views on religion and it’s role within government.

I agree with his speech wholeheartedly. He should say this stuff more often. He should be proclaiming this from the roof tops, in fact. I’ve been very disappointed with the religious entanglement that he’s gotten himself into lately. Hopefully this has reinforced, if not to the American people, at least to him personally the dangers of Politics and Religion.

The video can be found on youtube but most seem to come from the same source, yoism.com. I don’t know much about this organization but here’s their little blurb from the homepage,

Uniting Atheist, Skeptic, Agnostic, Realist, Enlightenment, Humanist, Unitarian, Transcendentalist, Pantheist, and Deist systems of belief to create the World’s First Open Source, Rational Religion, the advent of Yoism marks a turning point in the history of Homo sapiens, the next stage in human development: Childhood’s End.

The video is edited and I can’t easily find the full speech, but when I return from vacation I’ll look further into this group and try and dig up the full, un-edited speech.
