Politician Don’t Preach

To go by some responses to my latest American Spectator dispatch, you’d think I was calling for a new secular inquisition to purge all religion from politics. Thank God a good number of readers see that interpretation for the Guinness Book of World Records-winning stretch that it is.

Like most Americans, I am comfortable with a good amount of religious influence on politics and occasional nods to God from the stump. What I object to is an absolute refusal to see any distinction between the sacred and the secular. The stump is not the right place to sermonize and the pulpit is a poor place to politick. Feel free to disagree with that, but you’re wrong.
