EXCELLENT article by David Harsanyi at Reason.com.
I would add 2 points.
1) During a debate in 2000, GW Bush said one thing about Jesus one time. Based just a few words and just a few words alone, millions of totally undiscerning Christians followed him slavishly for the next 8 years, even though there was little, if anything, Christian about his presidency. The Obama cult is nothing new.
2) Speaking of Christianity, this article reminds me of the story in I Samuel 8:4-20. The people begged God for an earthly king. God said, in effect, I well let you have a king … but you’ll be sorry you ever asked.
