It’s clear after watching the coverage last night that Obama’s candidacy and presidency have deep meaning to many, many Americans. People crave a new kind of hope, and Obama represents that. (Too bad they’re not looking to Jesus, though.) And particularly for the African-American community and all who have felt marginalized in the United States, Obama’s victory is a huge moment, announcing that we’re moving past all that. It’s an unspeakable shame, though, that the flip side of this is further marginalizing the current class of non-persons, unborn children. This is no victory for humanity.
I think he could surprise us with his adeptness at economic and foreign policy. Let’s pray that he has a conversion of heart on moral issues.
