A Newfie for Obama

posted by David Kuo

NPR asked me to do a short memo to the president-elect. I chose to do it on the dog he should choose… and why. Check it out.

McCain’s “The One”

posted by David Kuo

John McCain’s band of white advisers had best take a stroll down the lane of African-American oratorical history before they launch their next anti-Obama missive. [This is not to suggest that there is anything racial about McCain’s ad. I’m sure […]

Meet Barack Dobson

posted by David Kuo

How different are they? Really? James Dobson and Barack Obama? On the face of it there is little, save their shared humanity, that seems to unite the two men. From their skin color to their positions on abortion, gay marriage, […]

DiIulio returns, Faith-based alive… despite Bush

posted by David Kuo

Two things of note. First, John DiIulio is back. In the 1990s, DiIulio emerged as one of the most consequential voices in public policy. Articles like this one and this one and this one and scores of others challenged the […]

A soldier on waterboarding

posted by David Kuo

A former soldier, a Christian, continues the conversation on waterboarding and the Christian conscience: For me, there are some fundamental challenges that national security issues present to a Christian world-view. Being a former citizen soldier, I have already been forced […]

Erik Prince and Blackwater

posted by David Kuo

An intense article about Blackwater and its founder Erik Prince in the newly-remodeled version of Newsweek. Prince’s casual mingling of his Christian faith with his “private security firm” has always struck me as just a little bit odd. I try […]

the “religious left” and fasting

posted by David Kuo

A year ago, when Tempting Faith was published, one of the things that received a lot of attention was my call for evangelicals to “fast” from politics. Here is a snippet: I’m not talking about a permanent retreat from politics. […]

Religious books back in prisons

posted by David Kuo

After saying it was sticking by the policy to only allow “approved” religious books in prisons, it seems the government has changed its mind: After the details of the removal became widely known this month, Republican lawmakers, liberal Christians and […]

A Jewish lesbian’s crush on Ahmadinejad

posted by David Kuo

You really can find absolutely anything on the Web. Anything. For instance, an entry entitled “Why I Have a Little Crush on Mahmoud Ahmadinejad” . The writer, Sally Kohn, begins: I know I’m a Jewish lesbian and he’d probably have […]

My last Slate post

posted by David Kuo

I’ve posted my last email to Hanna Rosin over at Slate. It has been a wonderful exchange and I look forward to her final response later today. Here is part of what I had to say. To read it all, […]

Prison book purging

posted by David Kuo

This one is beyond puzzling. The Bureau of Prisons has assembled a list of “acceptable” religions books. That means that in prisons across America libraries are being stripped of religious texts not on the approved list. You couldn’t have sold […]

Korean hostages

posted by David Kuo

Did the South Korean government go too far in negotiating for the release of the hostages? Talk about a hard case. Everyone should be celebrating the release of those men and women. How truly, truly wonderful. At the same time, […]

Gonzales

posted by David Kuo

Over the past few months as people asked the question, “Why hasn’t Gonzales resigned yet?” the answer I kept hearing was two words long, “Karl Rove.” The White House fear was that if Gonzales left all the Democrats firepower would […]

Stunned by “God’s” politics

posted by David Kuo

Long article in yesterday’s NYT Sunday Magazine on how the West’s march towards rational secularism is stopped dead in its tracks by the political fundamentalism of radical Islam. A little more than two centuries ago we began to believe that […]

More on Gerson

posted by David Kuo

Pete Wehner, once Mike Gerson’s deputy in the White House, and a friend of colleague of Mike’s (and mine) since the early 1990s writes a fact-based response to Matt Scully’s piece attacking Gerson at National Review Online. Wehner, someone singled […]

Karl Rove funds the Democrats (indirectly)

posted by David Kuo

Steve Jobs couldn’t be much more loyal to the Democratic Party. A review of his giving finds more than $250,000 going to Democratic candidates. He did give $1,000 to a Republican once… in 1982. Karl Rove couldn’t be much more […]

“Godly” money?

posted by David Kuo

More on “In God We Trust” on our currency. John E. points out: American presidents such as Theodore Roosevelt strongly disapproved of the idea of evoking God within the context of a “cheap” political motto. In a letter to William […]

No “In God We Trust”?

posted by David Kuo

An email is making its way back around about the new dollar coins – not that anyone really knows we have the coins or cares that we do – omitting “In God We Trust” from them: Subject: DO NOT ACCEPT […]

The Sunday morning debate

posted by David Kuo

Is the complete mess of the Republican party any clearer than with the fact that all of these men who are trying to compete for votes and attention – and are really trying to mobilize the completely disinterested conservative Christian […]
