Default Re: Values Added: Religion in the Republican Race (Amy Sullivan & Sarah Pulliam Bailey)

Well you know, if, you know, Sarah, you know, did not constantly say you know, you know, this diavlog would have been 15 minutes shorter, you know.

Now let me understand this - unless you have a deep understanding of evangelical theology, you should not write about evangelicals. And we should only use experts that evangelicals approve of. And we have to accept your view of evangelical heroes like Francis Schaeffer. But which Schaeffer? He kept getting farther out there his entire life. Maybe Sarah should have listened to the Lizza/Ponnuru diavlog.

Sarah is a graduate of the evangelical Harvard, Wheaton College. She has been in an evangelical cocoon. Her opinions are soooooo well informed from a broader world view. How about trying to understand the the non-evangelical world before demanding a better understanding of your narrow world view by the rest of society.

I see the biggest threat to this country as Calvinism. John Calvin was one of the most despicable people who ever lived. His theology permeates all of evangelicalism. And now the tea party is putting forth a secular Calvinism. It is not libertarian. It wants small government in some realms of life but wants gross intrusion of government in other areas of life. I will take the tea party seriously once it calls for an end to the drug war and large cuts in defense spending.
Even a blind man knows when the sun is shining, he can feel it.
