Candidates get religion


I didn’t watch it and the only thing I’ve learned by about Obama’s and McCain’s performances at the faith forum hosted on Saturday night by pastor/author Rick Warren, is that Obama brought his lawyer’s knife to a preacher’s gun fight and McCain may have cheated.

In a world with no room for nuance, I can’t believe that a forum touching on gay marriage, abortion and all of the other deep, philosophical and moral issues that our culture grapples with all the time, could have been that productive.  I’d much rather hear a couple of philosphers or theologans debate this than the guys running to head our secular (as far as I remember) government.
