Some Good Ol’ American Religion

It is clear that our friend Stephen is a great writer, but I was particularly impressed with this fantastic conclusion to his recent post “Sometimes Liberals Say the Darndest Things.”:

If one’s religion is more “American” than someone else’s, it doesn’t make that religion any more true, it just makes their god an idol who gets on his knees before the US Constitution.  If you prefer to invest pieces of paper and men wearing powered wigs with some sort of sacred aura, that is all well and good; when you decide to become a Christian, the crucified Palestinian is waiting for you still.
