I came close to supporting Marco Rubio for president when he reportedly had the courage to say that there are not many answers in the Bible. I say "reportedly" because this was one of many Ted Cruz fabrications. Rubio really said, "All the answers are in the Bible."
I appreciate most of President Obama's remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington on February 3, and at the Maryland mosque the day before. I agree with the president's call to respect the right of every American to practice his or her religion, and his observation that we can live happier and more productive lives by overcoming blanket, unfounded fear of others.
