Williams has a point:
LAST WEEK’S presidential forum between Barack Obama and John McCain, hosted by Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church and a best-selling author, offered the good and the bad about our current political discourse.
The good was in its groundbreaking nature. The evangelical Christian movement has been largely white, conservative, Republican and linear in its theological perspective. Moreover, the traditional wedge issues like abortion and same-gender marriage were mentioned but not the dominant themes of the evening.
It would have been hard, if not impossible, to imagine the late Rev. Jerry Falwell putting on a similar event at his Thomas Road Baptist Church, and even less likely that a Democratic presidential candidate would have accepted the invitation.
