Stem Cell Opposition

With Obama's embryonic stem cell decision being posed by some a widely supported measure, it's important to remember that the opposition, although perhaps in the minority, feels quite strongly on the issue. Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said today: "President Obama's executive order shows disrespect for the deeply held moral convictions of tens of millions of Americans by compelling taxpayers to fund this deadly experimentation."

Which stands in stark contrast to the political good will some projected after Obama solidified his ties to Rev. Rick Warren by inviting him to deliver the invocation on Jan. 20.
