Clergy for Obama

I joined this group on Facebook this morning. It's called "Clergy for Obama". I love their statement:
We are Clergy for Obama.
We believe in Barack Obama’s ability to change this country we love so dearly;
more importantly, we believe in our ability to be the change.
We believe in our ability to create a country where:
all children have nourishing food
the sick can find affordable healthcare
our young adults have real opportunities and a future they can trust
the elderly live securely
and in community women and men have choices about their private lives
armed conflict is a last resort, not a substitute for diplomacy
Together we believe in our ability to move this country
to a politics of hope to a deep regard for the life of the planet and care for all creation
to an investment in programs that work to end poverty to equal pay for equal work
We are children of God.
We are citizens of the United States of America.
We believe now is the time for change.
We are Clergy for Obama.
This is a wonderful statement about what I believe is possible for our country if Obama is elected in November. I urge all of you to make sure you are registered to vote & learn as much as you can about the candidates! Be engaged, watch the debates, discuss your opinions with others, and most of all, make sure you vote on November 4th!
