Tom Foreman is a correspondent on Anderson Cooper 360. I actually read through his letter the first time thinking that it was written by Anderson Cooper, and although it’s not, it is written by one of his guys and displayed by CNN on their website. Foreman has been writing President Obama a letter each week since he took office. Here is a sample of his latest offering, in reference to Christians in America, since Easter is this week:
People of faith sometimes mistake their own fist for the hand of God; non-believers sometimes mistake scientific findings for proof that God is not there. Faith by its very nature is not subject to proof one way or the other. If you had proof, it would not be faith. If you need proof, faith is far away.
And if we can learn to accept those opposing stances in each other, we’ll be a stronger nation where both the faithful and faithless can share the peace and wonders of our world…
Read the entire letter here, and tell me what you think. Is Foreman’s take on religion in America just about right?
