No one is mistaking the Texas Freedom Network for an objective news source. They have a clear agenda to challenge the Christian Right’s influence in Texas politics. Yet they often seem to get it right. Here is a recent example:
UPDATE: And now we see a press release in which the Family Research Council says it is trying to gather 1 million Americans to pray for U.S. Senator Jim DeMint, the Republican tea party champion from South Carolina. From Tony Perkins, Family Research Council’s president:
“We want the men and women from both parties to know that an attack on Sen. DeMint is an attack on all conservatives and people of faith.”
Why? Is Sen. DeMint the Messiah? The arrogance would be astonishing if it weren’t so typical.
Why not rally 1 million people to pray for Barack Obama?
1 Timothy 2: 1-2:
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
And for all of you Christians out there who are politically liberal: How often did you pray for George W. Bush when he was in office?
