Don't answer that, Mister Huckabee. And the pandering is on both sides of the aisle. This video from The Interfaith Alliance proves what I said in December of 2006, that athiest author "Sam Harris and company will have to hold their noses when Obama gives his acceptance speech in Denver..."

The most glaring example has to be Tim Russert's "favorite Bible verse" debate question. I would have answered, "Why Tim! It's John 11:35! You know, "Jesus wept." And if he heard your stupid, pandering question, he's weeping again today."

On topic are Bruce Wilson's excellent article, "How Fake American History Feeds Christian Nationalism," and The Reverend Barry Lynn's editorial, "Thou Shalt Not Mix Religion and Politics."

Can you help us out?
