This morning at the National Prayer Breakfast, President Obama took the occasion to make some comments about religion and respect for human life:

While Senate Democrats may have all kinds of colorful names for Roland Burris, the new junior Senator from Illinois, “the Lord’s work” probably isn’t one of them:
I’m in there every day working with the people because that’s what the Lord has directed me. Can you all imagine a young, Black kid in Centralia, Illinois, at the age of sixteen saying he wanted to do two things? One, to be a lawyer and the other, to be a statewide elected official.
