Truly depressing campaigning …

If you haven’t seen this piece by Amy Sullivan on the new low struck in the US presidential campaign, it’s worth checking out. I hope that my fellow Evangelical Christians will not be suckered by this kind of manipulative tactic, and I hope that as many of us as possible will speak out against it.
My suggestion: watch to see which Evangelical leaders speak out against this abuse of religious rhetoric. And watch to see which ones defend it – either vocally or tacitly. That will make clear where the constricting borders of the Religious Right of the future will be.
If you want to join me in expressing disgust at this kind of campaign rhetoric, join the Matthew 25 initiative here
