Obama’s faith

Here’s what Obama had to say about his faith just the other day:

“…the precepts of Jesus Christ spoke to me in terms of the kind of life that I would want to lead: being my brothers’ and sisters’ keeper…”

That struck Scott as a questionable interpretation of the Christian message, but let’s leave that aside for the moment. A comment by David Bugnon on Twitter reminded me that Obama actually has a brother, a half-brother anyway. He’s living in a shack in Kenya:

Seriously, why won’t the President do something for this guy? Is he afraid he’d be criticized for sending a few bucks to a family member? I don’t know, maybe he has done so under the radar. But he hadn’t, apparently, when this interview was done last year. So even assuming he’s doing something now, the whole time he was a Senator…nothing?

Just saying. If being his brother’s keeper is Obama’s idea of faith in action, he doesn’t seem to be doing that great a job.
