The following snip from a Pew article about Obama and United Methodists has me shaking my head:
About 200 miles south, at Faith Community Church of West Chester, the Rev. Norm Coleman said he likewise plans to vote for the Arizona senator. "I don’t know about Obama’s Christianity, that’s what brings me into question about him."
And he gets information on McCainâ€™s Christianity exactly where? McCain refuses to talk about Christianity, only a vague generic â€œfaithâ€ which he invariably ends up defining as â€œfaith in Americaâ€. Now thereâ€™s a strong theological understanding there. And McCain also doesnâ€™t even seem to attend the church where he is ostensibly a member. So again, exactly where do people get the idea that McCain is â€œmore Christianâ€ than one who apparently has no problem talking about church, faith in Jesus Christ, and the rest? From the right wing media, who is just as clueless about faith except in how to manipulate it. And this audience sucks it all in and accepts it.
