Great article about Tim Kaine

CBS News posted an article titled "Reaching Out To Religion". Virginia is one of two states holding statewide elections this year and many eyes are on the race for governor.

The article discusses Kaine's beliefs and strategy. It explains why the DNC is giving him a record $5 million.

Kaine is quoted as saying that the Religious Right should not be attacked but rather their ideas. I'd like to think that this space does just that, except one time I came close to name-calling.

Will Kaine succeed? The article points out that many conservatives are of the mind that "God wrote it, I believe it, that settles it". I pray that these people will sincerely listen to both candidates and make an informed decision.

Especially since my wife is in Seminary and has impressed on me that the Hewbrew/Greek to English translation has the result of losing the original meaning in parts. Thus, even with the Bible one has to have an open mind and really study it to fully grasp it's meaning.

  • Good post. I think Kaine is right to reach out to religious people...Democrats aren't anti-religious, even if some people say we are. The best way to fight that misconception is to try extra hard to show that Democrats and religious people have a lot of values in common.
