Obama plays it Safe.

When it came down to deciding which church to attend this Easter Sunday, rather than base his decision on deep religious convictions, Obama chose to play it safe - and essentially vote "present"- by attending services at St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C..

St. John's is nicknamed "Church of the Presidents".

Although I would not attend services at an Episcopal Church, I don't necessarily have a problem with the President of the United States going there....provided he is an Episcopalian. Obama isn't and has no intention of becoming one.

This idea that "any ol' church will do" shows a lack of spiritual development. Obama has been in Washington, D.C. since , at least, 2004 when he was elected to the U.S. Senate.......he's known since November, 2008 that he and the family would be living in D.C. for , at least another four years and in all that time, he has yet to find a suitable church home.

This lack of spiritual commitment probably won't hurt him politically. Being a typical politician, Obama had to attend church this Easter. Too many Americans go to church only on Easter and they expect the POTUS to do likewise.

I'm curious to see what sort of religious upbringing he has in store for his children. That's the real question.

He went there because a "Church of the Community Organizers" hasn't been founded yet.
