130 South Carolina Ministers endorse Barack Obama

Senator Barack Obama picked up the endorsement of 130 black ministers today in the early state of South Carolina.

"We believe Barack Obama will not use his religion as a crutch or a hammer, but will draw on the moral imperatives of our faith and apply them to the political, social and economic problems of our country," said Rev. Joseph Lowery, founder of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.

Barack was characterized as a person who will combine political with spiritual leadership. "Here we have a man who brings together the political and the spiritual in a very active way," said Rev. C. T. Vivian, a close adviser of Martin Luther King Jr.
