more responses … and yours?

This one comes from a “post-pentecostal” friend from Europe …

I want to congratulate you and the world, for the right choice the American people made in choosing Obama as the next president of the United States. Even though many evangelicals, Charismatic/pentecostals are not happy with the election of Obama,
I am very happy! Africa is rejoicing today, because this time Africa has exported a President instead of a Slave!

This is from a friend in a swing state from a few days ago …

I just wanted to say thank you for your wise and hopeful words throughout this campaign. The spirit of your words was in such stark contrast to the fear-mongering of much of the so-called “right.” It truly opened my eyes to an ugly arrogance/ignorance (a dangerous combination) thread that runs through a good deal of evangelicalism. And I resonate with the comments on your blog this a.m.. As an American, I have the right to remain silent about my political choices, but I don’t have the ability. 🙂 As a result, it is quite clear that many of my Republican friends think less of me.”
