Of Stem Cells and Religion -- Who Owns the Dialogue?
With welcome breaths of fresh reason, civility and moderation, John C. Danforth challenges the Christian Right's claim to ownership of Christian politics. He thoughtfully wrests that ownership from the Right and establishes a claim for Moderate Christians everywhere in a NY Times column I wish I'd written myself.
Here's the opening paragraph:
IT would be an oversimplification to say that America's culture wars are now between people of faith and nonbelievers. People of faith are not of one mind, whether on specific issues like stem cell research and government intervention in the case of Terri Schiavo, or the more general issue of how religion relates to politics. In recent years, conservative Christians have presented themselves as representing the one authentic Christian perspective on politics. With due respect for our conservative friends, equally devout Christians come to very different conclusions.
John C. Danforth is an Episcopal minister and former Republican senator from Missouri.
