Newsflash! Obama prays!

Currently (July 26, 1:49 pm) the lead story on Yahoo News–

Like many visitors to the Western Wall, Obama left a prayer note when he visited.  Apparently a seminary student thought it was OK to remove Obama’s note and give to the Israeli media, and one newspaper decided to publish it.

Aside from the violation of Obama’s privacy, I wonder what’s going to happen to the seminary student who stole the note.  The article makes clear that doing what he did is strictly forbidden.  Does he get to waltz off into the sunset?  I sure hope not.  I’m not especially religious, but neither am I in favor of vetting religious leaders who blatantly violate their own rules.
