Roy Moore's crusade.
Richard Land says the Alabama chief justice and loose cannon Roy Moore has divided Evangelicals by mixing up two very different campaigns:
The first issue involves whether or not the Ten Commandments in particular, and acknowledgment of God in general, are permissible in public buildings in the United States. On that issue, I, like most evangelical Christians and many other Americans, agree with Judge Roy Moore’s position. . .
However, we are a government committed to the rule of law. That is the second issue in the Ten Commandments-Judge Moore controversy. Do evangelical Christians really want to say that this United States government is no longer a legitimate government and that we are no longer obligated to obey its courts when we disagree with their rulings? If so, let us understand it for what it is. It is insurrection.
A helpful reminder that there's a big difference between a conservative and a religious revolutionary. So which side of this divide will the Republicans pander to?
