Thought of the Day

Russell Moore, whom you know I greatly enjoy reading, has offered another thoughtful comment or two on the 2012 presidential race. One thought I enjoyed was this:

Unfortunately, American evangelicals have too often longed for a secular authority to serve as a spiritual leader, and political professionals have been all too willing to exploit this by teaching candidates to parrot evangelical-sounding phrases and “testimonies.” In such cases, political leaders become totem-like for evangelicals. An attack on a candidate who identifies with “us” is an attack on “us” or, worse, on Jesus. That’s unhealthy, regardless of whether the politician is male or female.

Read the whole post here–it’s a good reminder to be cautious about deciding on political candidates based on the mere assumption that we might stand on similar theological ground.
