We evangelicals aren’t inherently stupid, although we do get that way at election time. Push the scare button, give us a choice, and we’ll choose Barabbas, the people’s criminal, 9 out of 10. Nonetheless, even our political gullibility has its limits. Supporting mean-spirited, hawkish, unyielding ideologues isn’t the path my Sunday School teachers taught me. Obama may not be the absolutely perfect, heaven-come-down package. But I’ve already god a Messiah, I’m just looking for a decent president. Obama ‘08.
