Transcript for Strait Talk Detroit: What the Obama Administration Could Have Done Better for Religious Groups
This presents purple. And I would like to be its fares across the candles lost. In what ways has to current administration disappointing Q as a person of faith and what is your hope for the next administration. As saying. I think on the religious liberty issue again that's been public the biggest area of disappointment and there's and you know. A sense I think among a lot of Christians that it's sort of us against the culture and it doesn't need to be that way you look at the Catholic church and the Catholic Church is the largest provider nongovernment writer charity. Education and health care services to the Ford. And so I think very Catholics feel like. You know we're being sort of put into this ideological get it seems like well what you know. You look again I like a little sisters of the poor and these are women who have devoted their lives to caring for corn dying ultimately people. And so I think there's been a little that in a sense that we've been picked Don and we're not sure why. And so my hope for the future is that we conservatives get back to first principles in this country and agrees. You can disagree about things.

You know any structures that perpetuate relieve the bias. Against Arabs or Muslims or people of color so certainly civil liberties and civil rights what will always be you know forefront issue for the mosque and community at this time. I'd also say terms of perhaps the years of Obama. It issue of Israel Palestine. Is very important to Arab and Muslim Americans as is. You know health care and the economy and all the issues at the traders care about. Many Arab Americans and Muslim Americans they're children of immigrants from the Arab world. And they continue to watch. With concern the conflicts abroad and I think there was some hope with Obama in terms of solving. The issue with Israel Palestine but he saw bombardments and Gaza and the like and think that was very disappointing.
