With Election Day finally having come and gone, God-o-Meter is closing up shop till 2012–or at least 2010. Till then, get your faith and politics fix over at Beliefnet editor-in-chief Steve Waldman’s blog.
God-o-Meter has learned that the Obama campaign is about to email religious supporters an annoucnement about a new line of Obama faith merchandise–bumper stickers, buttons, and signs with three different messages, featured here–along with the following note:
Great news! We now have faith merchandise available for you to show your support for Barack Obama as a person of faith.
Check out the Believers for Barack, Pro-Family Pro-Obama, and Catholics for Obama buttons, bumper stickers and signs….
Believers for Barack rally signs and bumper stickers, along with all Pro-Family Pro-Obama merchandise, are appropriate for people of all faith backgrounds. We’ll soon be rolling out merchandise for other religious groups and denominations, but I wanted to get this out to you without delay.
Take good care,
Deputy Director of Religous Affairs
Obama for America
You can see samples here and here.
God-o-Meter hears that the campaign will be unveiling gear for other Christian denominations very soon, along with “Clergy for Change,” and “Pro-Israel Pro-Obama”
