Obama skips church, hits the gym

President-elect Barack Obama has yet to attend church services since winning the White House earlier this month, a departure from the example of his two immediate predecessors.

On the three Sundays since his election, Obama has instead used his free time to get in workouts at a Chicago gym.

Asked about the president-elect's decision to not attend church, a transition aide noted that the Obamas valued their faith experience in Chicago but were concerned about the impact their large retinue may have on other parishioners.

Good for him. He shouldn't be wasting his time in church, anyway. I think it's refreshing to see someone caring more about their health than about religion.

Does anyone really care about this stuff? At least he is doing something constructive with his time.
