    If President Obama has his way, you'll soon be hearing about his health care package when you go to your church or synagogue to pray.

    Thousands of religious leaders got a call from on high Wednesday when Obama reached out to Jewish and Christian clergy, urging them to push health care reform from the pulpit.

    Obama spoke to about 140,000 people of faith in a conference call and webcast Wednesday evening. He and a White House official discussed the moral dimension of health care, telling the mostly Christian audience that "this debate over health care goes to the heart of who we are as a people."

    I disagree with your title. I believe that the democrats/leftists have for years consistently tried to make the united States a third world country. Remember those who wanted to unilaterally disarm during the "Cold War". They will use any means to accomplish that goal.

    Then apparently you missed the point. They claim to believe is this mythical separation of church and state but then the President make a call like this.

    No! I did not miss the point. I was just "venting my spleen" at the leftists.

    Separation is no "myth" except in the minds of reconstructionists. To Mitch's point, I still say it is fallacious, as Obama is not using the power of government to endorse any religion, or religion over non-religion. Philosophically however, I do have an issue with ANY entanglement of the two. The free exercise clause gives us freedom OF religion, and the establishment clause gives us freedom FROM government coerced or endorsed religion.
