I applaud Mohler's position and only wish that he had articulated such things during the days of the Bush administration. I do not know Al's record on Religious Liberty or Church-State separation, but his alignment with the religious right,some of whose members do not hold to religious liberty or separation, make his comments now more than a little suspect. When Bush held his first faith-based meeting in the youth quad of our church (between his election and his inaguaration), it was only the baptist and the rabbi in the group who objected for these very reasons. Ron Sider, Jim Wallis, the head of the Catholic Bishops were all cheering him on.

I echo the above comment on where was Mohler when it was Bush? I'd like to see Obama abolish the faith-based institutions section in the White House, but it ain't happening.

On the Bush torture policies: facing the truth, no matter how ugly, is the only path to preventing a repeat. We MUST have investigation and prosecution.

I worry about Afghanistan being the downfall of Obama (not to mention the U.S.) as much as Vietnam was to LBJ.

I am just an un-educated (at least I have no degree) old man from a dry land farm in Texas. I knew from the very get go that faith based governmental funding was a bad thing for any religious organization. Why did it take so long for some one as well degreed and thought of as AL Mohler this long to come to the same conclusion? I think it is either lack of thinking power to begin with or it has just now become politicaly expediant.
