Quote of the day

February 20, 2008

Brian LePort warns against “messianic politics,” and hits the nail right on the head:

 “This can become most dangerous when, for example, a Christian who supports Huckabee, or Obama, or whoever, begins to justify all the actions and stances of his or her candidate of choice. This is why we have had so many Evangelicals–people who follow the religion of a person who died on a Roman cross without putting up a fight–supporting the war in Iraq. It is felt that to preserve anti-Roe politics for instance, we must then also support war because, well, it is give one-take one. Once you’ve been invited to sit in the Big (White) House it is hard to criticize the host.”
