Thoughts are but coins. Let me not trust instead
Of Thee, their thin-worn image of Thy head.
--C.S.Lewis, The Apologist's Evening Prayer
With liberals having lost two straight presidential elections and their power in Washington at an all-time low, so-called liberal people of faith are coming out of the woodwork. They read the New Testament as a blueprint for an anti-war, social justice agenda. In their minds Jesus is pro–higher taxes, anti-war, and pro–gay marriage, a combination of John Lennon, Gandhi, and Karl Marx. As absurd as this may sound to religious conservatives, it should not be discounted. I do not believe the right is prepared to make proper rebuttal, and this is potentially disastrous.
