Obama Appoints 26 Year Old Pentecostal Preacher to Faith-Based Initiatives Office

This news is sort of breaking and is a important story to Catholic and other faith communities. Get Religion has an inital of overview of who this man is and what he believes at Covering the faith in faith-based.

It will be interesting to see how the Press covers this. One of course wonders how the press would have covered the appointment of a political savvy Pentecostal by a Republican. As the article points out Palin's Pentecostal leanings were covered a great deal and not in a general positive light.

The article brings up again a statement that President Obama made as to faith based groups and federal grants that has troubled many. So this is an important appointment to watch
