Today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:
Religion and the president
It's pretty disturbing that now there is an apparent litmus test on the depth of Obama's devotion to Christianity. The idea of separating church and state is the most important tenet of the last millennium and is the foundation of modern democracy.
Do we want our president obeying the Constitution or "doing the work of God"? We just experienced a born-again Christian president who claimed divine guidance when he launched, on false pretenses, the catastrophic invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, which resulted in thousands of needless deaths.
