Just When You Thought the Culture Wars Were Over
Just when you thought the economy and deficits were going to be more prominent in the mid-terms than social and religious issues, you read something like this:
… that’s one of the things that’s most destructive about the growth of government is this taking away that freedom, the freedom, the ultimate freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation, and to find Christ for me and you, and I think that’s one of the things we have to be very, very aware of that the Obama Administration and Congressman Carnahan are doing to us.
Those words were uttered by Republican Ed Martin during a radio interview Monday. Martin is positioned to take on Democratic Congressman Russ Carnahan this fall, for the opportunity to represent Missouri’s third congressional district.
Granted, I haven’t had a chance to review Martin’s comments in context. Perhaps there’s something in the full interview that justifies or mitigates this seemingly unfounded accusation — although I’m having a very difficult time imagining just what that might be.
