Faces of Faith

The faith-based council formed under President Bush and expanded by President Obama has come under fire by critics who say it isn't enough of a priority for the White House. We had a conversation about that Sunday morning with two members of the President's council.

Join TJ Holmes and Betty Ngueyn weekend mornings in the CNN Newsroom, beginning 6am ET/ 3am PT.

    Let's see...It seems to me we have two wars, no jobs, a recessive economy and a failing Health Care System... among other pressing issues. Since we are a Nation which separates Church and State...what is the issue? This 'council' came in when we had a President who felt he was led by God...I am appalled that people whose only thoughts are of themselves. "Faith based people' think about others and don't continually demand and manipulate. Panic is caused by fear...why are some of these people so fearful?

    Keep to the separation of church and state. It has been slowly eroding since Eisenhower added "under God" to the Pledge of Allegience.

    What I heard in this short snippet is the presumptive arrogance of these two who claim to represent the "faithful" Terms such as, "cleaning up the messes" and "adding the moral voice" make me wonder why they think that they are the only moral people around and the ones with the answers to our problems. What makes them think that their voice, in the beginning, will make for better decisions and policies. I don't care what anyone says, but those that think they have the answers for all of us and think that those that don't go along are less than they, are very dangerous people. There is a reason why there is separation of church and state and we would be well served to not forget that.
