The Party Faithful

That’s the title of a book I started reading and had to return to the library. I’m telling you. This book embargo is tough sometimes. But the subtitle is this: How and Why Democrats are Closing the God Gap. And here’s a brief little ditty from it:

“The God of Abraham and Isaac, the God who created the heavens and the earth, the God I was taught to trust and obey, could not be squeezed into the narrow confines of partisan politics. He wasn’t anybody’s campaign surrogate, and He certainly didn’t do endorsements. Baptists believe in an active and engaged God. But there is a difference between believing that the hand of God occasionally intervenes in human events and that it pulls the lever for Republican candidates” (p. 3).

And fear not…another good bit of political thinking (with a splash of feminism) will be along shortly.
