This is a great speech whittling the Religious Right down to size. And I especially like the fact he delivered it to the national meeting of the United Church of Christ, a denomination that’s been in the forefront of efforts to push back against the far right’s hijacking of the Christian religion (Obama is a member of a UCC church).
Somehow, somewhere along the way, faith stopped being used to bring us together and faith started being used to drive us apart,” the Democratic presidential candidate said in a 30-minute speech before the national meeting of the United Church of Christ.
“Faith got hijacked, partly because of the so-called leaders of the Christian Right, all too eager to exploit what divides us,” the Illinois senator said.
“At every opportunity, they’ve told evangelical Christians that Democrats disrespect their values and dislike their church, while suggesting to the rest of the country that religious Americans care only about issues like abortion and gay marriage, school prayer and intelligent design,” according to an advance copy of his speech.
“There was even a time when the Christian Coalition determined that its number one legislative priority was tax cuts for the rich,” Obama said. “I don’t know what Bible they’re reading, but it doesn’t jibe with my version.”
I’m becoming increasingly convinced that the Democrats need Obama somewhere on the ticket (my personal preference would be as number two to Gore’s number one, but that’s looking less and less likely). He brings a sense of vision to the process none of the other candidates can match. And that could decide the election.
