This is why I am so consistently wary of the role of religion in politics. JTA has a short story about Steve Cohen’s opponent refusing to condemn this flier because she hadn’t seen it, as if hearing those words weren’t enough. It would be fair to say “Steve Cohen doesn’t share the beliefs of black Christians” but what I don’t understand is why the language has to be so inflammatory. Oh wait, that’s right. This isn’t about religion, at least in as much as it’s not about racism. It’s about politics.
