Politics and Religion

Last night's Larry King Live had a thoughtful and interesting discussion on religion and politics. Multiple viewpoints were represented and discussed by 4 fairly calm people waiting their turn to talk:

LARRY KING, HOST: Tonight, Bush versus Kerry. Born again versus Catholic. Does religion when picking a president? One week before the election we'll ask religious leaders Max Lucado, minister and bestselling author, the Reverend Jesse Jackson, twice a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, Pastor John MacArthur, the nationally syndicated Christian broadcaster, Father David Hollenbach, professor of theology at Boston College. And Reverend Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and States. ...

I don't have time to go through and pull out excerpts right now, but please do go read it if you're interested in the subject. It's probably the most pre-election sanity on the subject that we'll hear on the cable networks.

Also, the transcriptionist did a terrible job with some of Jesse Jackson's comments, a few of which read incoherently. I was listening, and I think much was lost from certain statements.
