If this article is true, I’m not that excited about this shift. True, it’s better than what we had under Bush, but why can’t we just leave religion out of politics? Why does every politician feel they have to drag their religion into the public sphere?
Kathleen Parker had a very good editorial in the newspaper today on Evangelicals are killing the Republicans. I think she gets it: “But, like it or not, we are a diverse nation, no longer predominantly white and Christian.” I can only hope for the day when the political machinery of this nation realizes this too.
