Obama links economic policies with faith

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama says he relies on his faith and values to guide his work on the nation's most urgent problems, including the economy.

Obama says that as a Christian, he believes in the teaching that to whom much is given, much is required.

He says that belief, and his reliance on economic good sense, is behind his policies -- including his call for the wealthy to pay more taxes.

Obama urges other leaders to not abandon their values or "the moral glue" that has guided the nation for centuries.

Obama is speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast.
