I wish I had more time to write on this, but we are about to launch our coverage from the annual meeting of the American Historical Association in Atlanta and I just don’t think I will get to write something larger than a quick post.
Have you seen this:
As most of my readers know, I am an evangelical Christian. I thus believe just about everything Rubio says in this video.
But this video represents everything that is wrong about the political union between American evangelicalism and the Republican Party.
I can’t think of another presidential campaign ad that operates solely as a personal testimony of a candidate’s religious faith. (Please tell me if I have missed one since the age of television began). There is not a single policy mentioned in this video. It a blatant attempt by Rubio to use his faith to win political points in Iowa. And it will probably work.
I appreciate that Rubio wants to store up his treasures in heaven, but how does this influence his views on immigration, foreign policy, the economy, etc… ? He is running for President of the United States, not Pastor of the United States.
It is a shame that Christian faith has now become subservient to politics in this way.
