    ...to the conservative stereotype of liberal secularists: they don't have any notion of right vs. wrong.  In vignettes like this, but also in bigger-picture situations like the budget, I get the impression that Obama lacks any sense that his positions aren't just his, but that they're right, while radically different perspectives are, well, wrong and something wrong to the point where it's ethically unsound to engage with them.  To me that's not healthy tolerance and pluralism, it's a funhouse-mirror version of that "relativism" conservatives decry.
