Anthony Wade has an excellent column titled "Religion Gone Wrong, Be Ye Not Deceived
". For the most part he sums up how I view the current situation in our nation as a progressive Christian. Here's a snippet:
The issue is not that Americans are frightened to have a President who speaks to God. It is having a President that assumes he can speak for God that is frightening. It is having a President who is seemingly without morals, who speaks of morality, that is worrisome. Most Americans believe in God and the teachings of Christ, so the fact that Bush is a self-avowed Christian is not the issue. It is the fact that his policies are decidedly un-Christian that is the problem.
