Strange bedfellows

 
What’s going on with certain religious leaders and the Democrats? Am I overly suspicious? Since the liberal Democratic Party (the Party of abortion, gays in the military, homosexual marriage, and expelling the church from public space) announced a plan to capture the evangelical vote and talk more about their faith, I started to notice the plethora of comments and articles on this subject from within the Party, from some evangelicals, and of course from the main stream media. 

The plan has appeared to me to require the liberal politicians to get much more “religious”, and the evangelicals to be much more “political”. Now I’ve noticed something else.  Is it possible that there is a much deeper cooperation between some world evangelists and liberal Democrat politicians?  Consider the following events:

-Prominent evangelist Rick Warren (of global PEACE Plan fame) invites Barrack Obama to share his mega-church pulpit.

- Rev. Warren pays a gratuitous visit to Syria and its’ despotic leaders, and proclaims them “tolerant”, “peaceful” and somewhat of a misunderstood beacon in the middle east.

-A “peace” summit is announced involving Syria, Iran and Iraq.

-Obama is quoted widely as encouraging the summit.

Is it just a string of coincidences, or is it a backdoor foreign policy designed to embarrass the Bush administration (and the USA), give Sen. Obama a head start on his presidential run, and give the Democrat-controlled Congress a launch point for foreign policy? 

Whatever the case may be, there have been some serious miss-representations made by both evangelical and political participants.  Rev. Warren needs to explain or apologize for his farcical statements (he claims he was misquoted and a YouTube video of him has gone missing), and Mr. Obama and others need to detail what kind of  “peace process” can be had with the Islamic despots of Syria & Iran. This would go a long way to dispelling my suspicions both religious and political.
