Preacher Huck: Christians under attack

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 10:30 AM

Brummett's column on religion and politics was timely. Despite the indication that other issues are more important these days, it doesn't mean politicians aren't still taking care to water the religionist roots of the Republican Party.

Such as Mike Huckabee. This came in via the Austin newspaper. Gone in his altar call for a meeting this week of evangelists -- LaHaye, Wildmon, etc. -- is any hint of the moderation he uses successfully before different audiences. The opening lines catch the spirit:

America and our Judeo Christian heritage is under attack by a force that is more destructive than any threat America has faced since Adolph Hitler in 1934. Defeating the radical jihadists will require renewed resolve and spiritual rearmament by the evangelical pastors in America.


Rediscovering God in America’s goal is to ignite people of faith to again engage the culture and bring America back to our standing around the world as a Beacon of Hope and a Shining City on a Hill
