Obama: "When I Listen To Less Than Loving Expressions By Christians, I Get Concerned"

|

President Obama expressed what has him "concerned" as a Christian in his remarks at the Easter Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday at the White House.

"I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love," Obama said. "And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that's a topic for another day."

PRESIDENT OBAMA: On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love. And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that's a topic for another day.

Where there is injustice -- I was about to veer off. I'm pulling it back. Where there is injustice we defend the oppressed. Where there is disagreement, we treat each other with compassion and respect. Where there are differences, we find strength in our common humanity, knowing that we are all children of God.

So today, we celebrate the magnificent glory of our risen Savior. I pray that we will live up to His example. I pray that I will live up to His example. I fall short so often. Every day I try to do better. I pray that we will be strengthened by His eternal love. I pray that we will be worthy of His many blessings.
