Radio Iowa: On a rainy Sunday, Obama focuses on God's creation
Excerpted from this post at Radio Iowa
It's been raining for hours here in Des Moines, with thunder
periodically rattling the windowpanes. A couple of hundred people
have filed into the meeting room here in the downtown Des Moines
Public Library, seating themselves in chairs arranged in a half-moon
shape, focused on a lectern with a placard that reads: "THE JUDGMENT
TO LEAD" pasted on the front. The event has been billed by the Obama
campaign as a forum to "highlight the role of faith in fighting global
climate change." A woman who had the microphone for a few minutes
mentioned Nobel Prize winner Al Gore and his movie. Now, Des Moines
Mayor Frank Cownie is talking about several "green" city initiatives.
"Get out and do the right thing," Cownie urges the crowd.
