Evangelicals Posturing Against Elusive War

How nice. The evangelical arm of the political far-right is once again posturing against the elusive war on religion. 

 Hundreds of evangelicals gathered in Tampa, Fla., on Sunday to highlight the importance of the November election due to President Barack Obama’s “war on religion.” The speakers at the Faith and Freedom Coalition rally included Mike Huckabee, Ralph Reed and Newt Gingrich.

Reed, founder of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, addressed a crowd of about 1,000 people at the Tampa Theatre Sunday afternoon, ahead of the Republican National Convention. He said conservatives were partly responsible for Obama’s victory in the 2008 election when 17 million evangelical Christians chose not to vote. “The church has allowed this to happen. I vowed that after the 2008 elections that as long as I have breath in my body that was never going to happen in America again,”

Tampa Bay Times quoted Reed as saying. “If we have to, we will crawl across broken glass, but we are coming and when we come we are going to have the biggest victory we have had for time-honored values in the history of this country. That’s what’s getting ready to happen.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee compared the Obama administration to Hurricane Isaac, whose threat forced the GOP to delay the start of the RNC until Tuesday. “We will take a hurricane getting near us in August, but we will make sure that the hurricane of this administration is way, way, way away from us come January of next year,” he said.

  1. Love Ralph Reeds claim he’ll, “crawl across broken glass”

    These folks missed their calling…they belong on a Broadway stage.

  2. All of this to elect a non-Christian, after all that worrying about a Muslim in the White House. The irony is astounding.

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
