The media’s favorite senator (or perhaps second-favorite to the man from Arizona) says Democrats can’t ignore evangelicals. Imagine that!
But seriously, when was the last time you heard a Democrat, especially one constantly mentioned as a candidate for national office, talk like this:
“Kneeling beneath that cross on the South Side of Chicago, I felt I heard God’s spirit beckoning me,” he said of his walk down the aisle of the Trinity United Church of Christ. “I submitted myself to his will and dedicated myself to discovering his truth.”
As a result, “I think we make a mistake when we fail to acknowledge the power of faith in the lives of the American people and join a serious debate about how to reconcile faith with our modern, pluralistic democracy.”
