Two Men Two Religions

The Weekly Standard: Reagan and Obama
Obama may not be speaking in openly religious terms as Reagan did, but he nevertheless looks on America in a way that could be seen as religious: he sees it as a nation conceived in original sin, one that has gone on to commit offenses against the world for which it must now atone. And Obama views himself as the special instrument through which America can finally purify herself, join the world of other nations as an equal rather than a leader, and go forth and sin no more. You might say that Reagan believed in American exceptionalism, whereas Obama believes in Obama's exceptionalism.
