DH writes in response to today’s column: Amen, brother. I’d be curious to know what kind of a response you’re getting from the ‘conservative’ Christian crowd.
I don’t think strong government appeals as quite as much to cultural conservatives as it once did. Perhaps the lessons of George Delano are beginning to sink home. Much to my surprise, no one has written in to take virulent exception, and the general tone of even the skeptics is, yeah, that makes sense, but how do we handle property division, taxes, children etc. I suspect that the failure and subsequent perversion of the War on Drugs also plays a part in growing Christian distrust for government solutions.
