No Faith In Faith Forum

In my opinion the low point of Campaign 2008 will be reached this Saturday when Barack Obama and John McCain in their quest to gain the support of religious voters will discuss faith in public life, AIDS, the environment and other issues as guests of one of America‘s foremost evangelists, Rick Warren. Despite the traditional separation of church and state the candidates will be asked about how faith would fit into their potential presidencies. Their appearance as guests of Rick Warren is a mistake. They are both unwittingly encouraging efforts to inject the elements of a theocracy into our democracy. We are electing a Commander -in -Chief not a Pope, Pastor - in - Chief or Ayatollah. Their position on faith issues should play no role in the campaign.
