Obama and HSLDA (Update)

In deference to HSLDA and their trademarked name Generation Joshua, the Obama campaign has decided to abandon the previously announced name, Joshua Generation for their youth faith outreach. HSLDA provided an excerpt from a letter they recently received from the Obama campaign,

"Please know that the Campaign respects the intellectual property of others and wants to avoid any unnecessary confusion. As you may already know, the Campaign is no longer planning on using the "Joshua Generation Project" name or any other confusingly similar name in the future. We appreciate you informing us of HSLDA's marks."
And they all lived happily ever after.

The End.

Well, not quite. Obama is still attempting to reach out to evangelical voters. This week he announced plans to expand Bush's faith-based inititatives but liberals for the separation of church and state are giving his faith inititative a big thumbs down. And as David Brody explains his pro-abortion stance is still a major stumbling block to broad evangelical support despite recent nuances to his position.

That's what happens when a candidate tries to be all things to all people. Obama may turn out to be the candidate no one can believe in.
