Darryl’s Obama point is a good one.
But I still find myself partial to how the Constantinian outlook puts one in cahoots with Bill Maher (did someone say radical?). It was Maher who, in an election-year interview for “Religiulous,” claimed that Sarah Palin was unfit for office due to her unorthodox form of Christian beliefs and practices. 1 Corinthians has something to say about who may come to the Table, but Mark 12 and Romans 13 seem to be at odds with the premise that religious belief dis/qualifies one for Office. Sarah may have been wildly unfit for public office, but it wasn’t because she and her pastor practiced witchcraft together.
