You should look at this link posted by N8:
Interesting advertisement – it’s complete spin, though. Falwell is patently not mainstream, even for conservative Christians. One of the things that really cranks me about both sides of any issue with the ‘us’ v. ‘them’ mentality is that we always exploit the worst in each other. We say we’re against the war in Iraq so we trot out Falwell to make all Christians feel like if they support the war, they support Jerry Falwell. Nobody is that homogeneous, even the Christian right – who I’m usually all over. It’s spin…
I can spin their ad…I love a bunch of these guys, Hauerwas, Dunn, Campolo – but their stance is incoherent. I quote, “We reject the notion that America is a ‘Christian Nation,’ representing virtue, while its adversaries are nothing but vicious.” But the whole ad is meant to urge America to act like a Christian nation while saying it’s not a Christian nation – if it’s not a Christian nation, it should be expected to act in its own best interest. Most in the Bush administration speak very diplomatically about Muslim nations and faith. See, spin is fun!
If you want to have Bruce, Eddie, Jackson, John, Dave, et al, make up your mind for you, check this out. Holy cow, this is a new low. Lucky there’s no IQ test for rock star, right Mr. President?
Speaking of IQ test: I read this today, and I think it’s sort of funny – it shows what I mean about spin. This guy takes Kerry test results and Bush test results and converts them to IQ tests – Bush comes out with a higher IQ. It’s all spin!
