Gov. Brewer, President Obama Put Religion Front and Center This Week

Religion is front and center this week on political stages in Phoenix and Washington.  At this hour, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is hosting the "Arizona Prayer Breakfast", and earlier this week, President Obama held an Easter Prayer Breakfast.  Last week, the President hosted a Passover Seder.

The Arizona Prayer Breakfast is put together by Arizona's Legislative Chaplain, Donna Kafer.  The inter-denominational get-together is hosted by Gov. Brewer, is patterned after the National Prayer Breakfast (put together by a Christian organization known as "The Family"), and is "centered in Jesus Christ".  This year's featured speaker is the well-known Christian disabled ministry leader Joni Tada.  Tickets were $35 each.
