Obama's speech at prayer breakfast

Faith has always been a guiding force in our family’s life, so we feel very much at home and look forward to keeping this tradition alive during our time here.”

Mr. Obama said that in history, faith has too often been wielded as a tool to divide, or as an excuse for prejudice or intolerance. “There is no doubt that the very nature of faith means that some of our beliefs will never be the same. We read from different texts. We follow different edicts. We subscribe to different accounts of how we came to be here and where we’re going next –- and some subscribe to no faith at all,'' he said, making a nod to atheism that was unusual for the setting.

''But no matter what we choose to believe, let us remember that there is no religion whose central tenet is hate,'' he said, perhaps a wishful notion more than a factual one, given religious fanaticism seen from Topeka to Riyadh.

One of the best as far as I am concerned. I really like it.
