The neocon God

William Kristol, who may or may not believe in God himself, has a quibble with Barack Obama --

His comment a week earlier at Wesleyan, that “our individual salvation depends on collective salvation,” I might add, would seem at odds with much of Christian teaching. But I’ll let Obama take that up with his minister.

Here's a comment that one would have thought poses a problem for Christian teaching --

We give thanks for our liberty -- and the universal desire for freedom that He [God] has written into every human heart.

That's George Bush, repeatedly claiming that he knows God's design and presenting this knowledge as justfication for the war in Iraq. William Kristol, theologian, has never offered his thoughts on that one.
