Answering a question about faith in yesterday’s Iowa Democratic debate, Mike Gravel was the only candidate to forego any mention of religion or spirituality: “What I believe in is love. And love implements courage. And courage permits us all to apply the virtues that are important in life.” And yet God-o-Meter remembers that as a U.S. Senator, the Unitarian Universalist Gravel helped get the Pentagon Papers published in book form through Beacon Press, a department of the Unitarian Universalist Association. And since Unitarian Universalists eschew specific religious beliefs, God-o-Meter concludes that Gravel may have been invoking his personal faith after all.
