    I'm surprised that CNN opted out of the ANOTHER Easter prayer held in the White House headline. They sure used it to describe the Seder the President was present at.
    Too trifiling for words you are CNN.

    Wonderful as always.
    Now I can gloat once again as my friends believe all the B. S. That floats around our President Obama. That he does NOT believe in prayer! Once again, my friends are the fools. Did I say friends! NOT anymore.

    Obama 2012!

    Hey. Rocky! Come here. You need to take this some place else.

    I'd prefer to see this event be conducted on property not directly owned and operated by the US Government. This crosses my line that delineates the separation of church and state. If you want to participate in a prayer breakfast, go right ahead. Just do not choose to hold in a building owned by the US government. If you do hold your event on US government property, then please leave the prayer part of it out.

    Fun facts: did you know that the religion of the President wasn't an issue until the 1960s election? Before that, there were several presidents who never even went to church. (Eisenhower was never even baptised)
    Also, I love how conservatives look up to Reagan as their role model... A spoilt hollywood celebrity. What's more a DIVORCED and re-married hollywood celebrity! Even in the last presidential election, people overlooked McCain's divorce.
    But then again, the sanctity of marriage is only important if a democrat breaks it. Then it's a condemnable act. If a republican breaks it... it's just a personal matter.
