crackpot Christians

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Walter Uhler has posted the third piece in his series on “Crackpot Christians” at HuffPo: “Bush and the Third Great Awakening.” (I commented on his previous pieces here.) Uhler quotes extensively from Reinhold Niebuhr, lamenting that, “America now appears incapable of producing such formidable Christian heavyweights.”

Instead, we get "theologians" like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, James Dobson and D. James Kennedy, who appear incapable of judging the Bush administration's illegal, immoral invasion of Iraq as Niebuhr surely would - in strict accordance with Christian ethics.
