Wow. Here’s Erick Erickson, supposedly one of the main voices of conservatism in this debased climate, passing judgment on President Obama and declaring: Barack Obama Is Not a Christian in Any Meaningful Way.
And the reason Erickson gives for this judgment: Obama admitted having doubts about religion. He just isn’t fanatical and unquestioning enough.
In a nutshell, this is everything wrong with the self-righteous religious right and the conservative movement. These people are every bit as zealous and unreasoning as ISIS.
The GOP’s idea man, Erick EricksonI wish the President would stop professing himself to be a Christian if he is not going to proclaim Christ as truth and the only way to salvation. The “all paths” nonsense and moral equivalence might fit in with the present age, but the present age does not really fit with Christ.
And as for doubts on whether I’m right, “the starting point of faith is some doubt” in my ability to save myself, not in whether I’m right. I know I’m a sinner. I know I cannot save myself. I have no doubt that Christ is the only way. It’s not that I’m right, but that Christ is right. So, Mr. President, get off your own high horse.
