Glad to see the demise, even if only temproary, of God-o-rama. Sorry to hear you intend to re-open this “debate” again next time. Seems you have forgotten that there isn’t supposed to be any religious test to hold public office inn America. This obnoxious (and appropriately under-read) column wants to ensure there will be.

More Innacurate Faith Storylines From the Media
God-o-Meter is struck by the number of faith-based storylines the news media appear to have gotten dead wrong this year. One was the line that Obama was poised to make big gains among white votes, especially evangelicals, who were undergoing a generational shift in their political thinking and reexa

Democratic Faith Gains: Overblown?
For all the time, money, and effort that Democrats and their liberal allies spent trying to move the faithful into their column--particularly the white faithful--it seems that they have relatively little to show for it, despite Obama's decisive victory. Yes, Obama narrowed the God Gap. He took 44-pe
