In his remarks at Ground Zero today, President Obama quoted Psalm 46. Via the AP:
“God is our refuge and strength,” Obama intoned, “a very present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear.”
Howard Friedman said that Obama’s remarks were limited to the psalm verse, and that the president did not identify the source of the quote. What made that a bit interesting was that some religious leaders had criticized the secular nature of the anticipated 9/11 services.
