Politics Slips Into Obama Easter Worship

Reuters has an interesting story about the Obama family making a rare Sunday church appearance yesterday in Washington.
Here's an excerpt:

The president declined the pastor’s invitation to speak, but a little bit of politics did slip in: the man who led the church in prayers, when mentioning the Obama family, said: “Lord, they’re going to need you for the next six year[s].”
Shouts of “Oh yeah” followed that intercession.
