Religious Freedom, not so much...

Reported from Kentucky (Ryan Alessi / McClatchy Newspapers):

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama's campaign has ramped up its efforts to emphasize his Christian faith in a series of new radio and television ads, as well as in a flier that volunteers have distributed.

Kentucky Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo, who endorsed Obama on Sunday, narrated a new radio spot for Obama that highlights the Illinois senator's upbringing and values, including how Obama is "a strong Christian."
You can be black, you can be a woman. If you want to get elected, just make sure everyone knows you are a Christian.

The pathetic state of freedom of religion in America.

Defend the bad against the worse."
