I have been telling Brody File readers for months that if Barack Obama becomes the Democratic nominee he will make a pitch to win over independent/moderate Evangelicals. Well, we now have evidence.
In Kentucky, he is making a direct appeal to Evangelicals with flyers that mention his conversion experience and they highlight a big old cross. Remember Mike Huckabee’s supposed subliminal cross in his Christmas campaign ad? Well, Obama campaign ditches the subliminal and goes for the in your face cross. Look at the flyer here.
Many secularists are tired of seeing candidates–Republican or Democrat–appealing to religious voters. After this, I’m getting to the point where I agree with them. Policies–those relating to religious freedom in the public square and especially in schools–are what count.
The good feelings won’t matter much when emotionalistic pandering turns to demonisation and incarceration, the favourite activities of American advocacy groups and the government, respectively.
