God-o-Meter joked earlier about Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton trying to out-church one another, but now that actually appears to be happening. Just as Obama is winding down his “40 days of Faith and Family” tour of South Carolina, the Clinton campaign is announcing a “For Such a Time as This Faith Tour” of the Palmetto State.
Featuring the prominent black pastors and authors Dr. Suzan Johnson-Cook and Rev. Marcia Dyson, the one-day tour happens tomorrow, with seven “ministers events” in Charleston, Columbia, Greenville, and Rock Hill, all focused on women’s issues. From the media advisory:

“If at this time you say nothing, then help and salvation will come from some other place, but you and your father’s family will come to destruction: and who is to say that you have not come to the kingdom even for such a time as this?” Book of Esther 4:14
Senator Clinton’s “For Such a Time as This” faith and values campaign in South Carolina is a reflection of her personal faith and how she embodies her faith in her public life and work. Her values are South Carolina values.

As it nudges Clinton’s meter up God-o-Meter asks: why aren’t the Republican candidates ever this public about their church outreach efforts?
