Obama and Biden Speak At White House Easter Prayer Breakfast

Both Vice President Joe Biden and President Obama yesterday addressed the annual Easter Prayer Breakfast at the White House (full text of remarks). While Catholic News Service reported at length on his religious remarks, much of the media gave prime billing to President Obama's three apparently off-script sentences:
On Easter, I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian, I am supposed to love.  And I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned.  But that's a topic for another day. (Laughter and applause.)
 Christian Post covers the event.
