Red Sox theology watch: Church and state edition.

At the First Parish in Concord today, my minister said he knew being a Red Sox fan was a religion when his reaction to Curt Schilling's Good Morning, America endorsement of President Bush was that Schilling was violating the separation of church and state!

(At the end of his sermon — which was a good old New England Election Day sermon — he said, "I'm Reverend Gary Smith, and I approve this message." We all laughed heartily.)

I see that Theo Epstein and John Henry have decided to cancel out Curt Schilling's endorsement with some campaiging of their own. At least there's diversity in the Church of the Redsoxians!
