Hugh Hewitt has a nice piece in Human Events arguing that secularists who don’t want a Mormon president, such as Slate’s Jacob Weisberg, will soon proclaim that other religious believers are beyond the pale. But I might take issue with this bit:
Hewitt cites a blog entry criticizing Weisberg by evangelical scholar John Mark Reynolds and goes on to complain, “Reynolds’ commentary on Weisberg’s bigotry was rather lonely. Weisberg’s naked exercise in faith-based bile went largely unremarked.”
“Weisberg’s attack on Romney is exactly the sort of attack on other Christians and believers in the miraculous that the secular left would love to make routine,” Hewitt concludes. “To mainstream Protestants and Mass-attending Catholics, the virtual mob against Romney because of his LDS faith may seem like someone else’s problem, but it is really another step down the road toward the naked public square.”

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
