-- tonight First Lady Michelle Obama speaking at a church conference in Nashville Tennessee saying this social problems of America things like poor education.
And obese children should be discussed in houses of worship.
Anyone who says that church is no place to talk about these issues.
-- you tell them there is no place better no place better.
-- -- -- These are not just political.
They are moral issues.
Not all ties into the social justice concept and joining us from Washington to react Fox News analyst and radio talk show star.
More in -- I I gotta I gotta and the segment I -- -- and a -- Annika needed disability.
I mean that I'm I gonna get a drink from Florida from the radio thing out Panamax and I asked -- for -- a little bit of a pain in neck.
-- you know what I tell us about you O'Reilly that we've got to pop -- have a little bit you're just a little bit.
-- -- 655 and the Mac.
So Michelle Obama saying look this -- of the problems we have in America even though they are and a political round.
Our moral situations that we have children who are suffering were being.
You know not given what they should -- to succeed in life and you sent.
Well look I wanna look at the bright side number one the First Lady talking about morality that's a great thing and I think there's that's to be celebrated by real.
Yeah you know saying that sarcastically senate okay now I I say that in all seriousness and any time we have 88 prominent.
Citizen of her stature then that's great I am and I don't personally have a problem with going to a church and talking about those things.
That the issue I think arises here with the Obama as though.
Of the decades of course of liberals attacking.
Faith and politics right there's always as you alluded to.
The separation of church and state that's close to be sacrosanct so.
So -- George Bush shorts -- conservative goes to a church and talks about months.
Marriage traditional -- imports to the -- -- abortion and any of these types of issues I -- people on the left will usually say.
All helping you this is is your politicizing the pulpit and how dare you do -- and tell you he argues there moral issues as well.
How -- their moral issues it to a vast majority I would submit of of African American pastors would think that much of what the obamas have done on on.
Issues of of the HHS Monday.
And even -- so let me down and hit just a dog's gonna conflict with their -- you just made an excellent point -- if if Michelle Obama we're here this evening.
And you said.
Obama would you consider.
A conversation about gay marriage.
In a church.
To be legitimate what do you think she would set.
I would I think bill language that probably devolved into well it's okay however we need to be taller rented -- all evolved to this position in other words.
The debate is really kind of shut down for a lot of people that she couldn't say that -- Laura because in some churches they go by the Bible.
And the Bible basically says that marriages between a man and a woman so I don't think he could say anything like dog sitter is that issue at this at this Tennessee Baylor item made at eight which is pretty amusing because.
Obviously there was great consternation you explored it on the fact I he would have -- today.
Yes that that is a legitimate subject to be discussed in a house of worship I don't you have to do remained insistent.
The problem is a lot of the group says as you pointed out that support the a -- -- would be going ballistic right because.
They are dedicated this idea of expunge it got from the public square.
And and vice -- -- right if you're if you're getting tax exempt status as a church.
Should you be doing an explicit get out the votes effort which when you look at -- and Michelle Obama's speech quite a lengthy speech but when you look at the language she talks about -- -- starts at -- change starts with each of us.
Using the language of her husband's campaign.
And then moving to talk about the need to get out on Election Day and be part of the process now.
That's far from just talking about morality what I think is history you -- you is using that church in Nashville Tennessee is a campaign stop.
I without a doubt I mean there's there's that she said I haven't done this before it did that it with it to this type of degree -- -- talking about the need.
For individuals to get out and vote and she referred to congress members of congress for not gonna get the things they want -- unless we have the right people in Washington and what is -- talking -- -- -- not getting out to vote and yet.
I agree -- on him to slow that's crossing the line that I think she did a little bit our Laura thanks.
