While touring a country that’s dealing with religious cleansing, U.S. President Barack Obama revealed what strengthens him—his Christianity.
“In our lives, Michelle and I have been strengthened by our Christian faith,” Obama said, according to ABC News. “Still, as you may know, my faith has at times been questioned—by people who don’t know me—or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing.”
“He has a serious practice of faith even though he doesn’t necessarily wear it on his sleeve,” former White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships Joshua DuBois told the New York Times.
The president made the comments during his second tour of India, which included a visit with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He warned Nodi that religious persecution could splinter the country.
