Conservative Evangelical and Catholic Leaders Grade Obama
The Associated Press reports on early Conservative Evangelical and Catholic leader's responses to the Obama administration. Of importance, these leaders either were on Obama's transition team or currently consult for Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Most of those leaders quoted felt that Obama has been true to his campaign promises and, therefore, are not upset. They are happy with the current conversation, even in disagreement, and are optimistic that Obama will seek common ground in the future. A few were disappointed, citing abortion and embryonic stem-cell research as examples.
