THOSE "CHRISTIANISTS" ARE EVERYWHERE: "Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards says Jesus would be appalled at how the United States has ignored the plight of the suffering, and that he believes children should have private time to pray at school. . . . Edwards has often cited religion as a part of his politics, frequently linking his efforts to fight poverty as a matter of morality."
Can't we keep religion and politics separate?
UPDATE: Reader Robin Lyons emails: "I doubt Edwards was thinking of the plight of the suffering when he was moving in to the $20 million mansion......."
Motes, beams, and all that.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Chuck Simmins emails: "Glenn, his new home means that he, at least, will not be suffering. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
Plus, still more religion in politics:
So I just want to talk a little about Moses and Aaron and Joshua, because we are in the presence today of a lot of Moseses. . . . They took them across the sea that folks thought could not be parted. They wandered through a desert but always knowing that God was with them and that, if they maintained that trust in God, that they would be all right.
Though, technically, I guess this isn't "Christianism."
