Obamas attend local church on Easter Sunday

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama and his family attended the Easter Sunday service at Shiloh Baptist Church, which was founded by freed slaves in 1863.

The first family entered the church to a standing ovation, then joined in singing with the choir, backed by a live band that included a guitar, keyboard and drums.

    muslim, baptist, methodist, that rev. wright guy and his church – when will we see him hangin' out with the jews?
    or christians?

    this mans religion is as clear as his economic, energy, healthcare, and foreign policies.

    oh wait – no economic, energy or foreign policy. – and the healthcare thing, well.......

    he is nothing if not CONsistent
