Obama's church attendance

Yesterday at the Newsweek/WaPo "On Faith" site, this question was asked:

Obama and Church

President-elect Obama hasn't been to church in three weeks, saying he doesn't want to disrupt the service for others. Reagan and Bush said the same thing, but Carter and Clinton attended church regularly. What's your advice? Where should presidents worship?

I responded that presidents, along with other Christians, should follow the command of Jesus to pray in private:

But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
(Matthew 6:6)

Exactly what my husband said when we were talking about it this morning. Great minds think alike. :)
