I've been reading a lot of the blog coverage of the Barak Obama speech, and it's fallout. On the right, is Al Mohler and others, blasting Obama for “secularism with a smile.” On the left are people blasting Obama for falling into the right's arguments. Some of us are in the middle. And these are simply manifestations of the deep divisions we have in this country about the role of religion in public life.
I generally think of myself as a, well, third tier blogger. Mostly read by my friends and acquaintances and folks who I have connections with in cyberspace. Well, today, I seem to have moved up a tier. I got quoted in Slate!! I do read Slate now and again, but maybe I should read it more often! Anyway, the post that quotes me has some other good links in the whole Obama discussion, which has continued to have repercussions in the blogosphere.
