Obama’s Kingdom


This presidential election will, like the last one, be filled with ‘God talk’. Fair enough, chattering about the big guy upstairs is an authentic part of America’s political dialogue. That said, I did like this comment from Reason’s Nick Gillespie on Senator Obama’s apparent belief that “we can create a Kingdom right here on Earth.”
” Establishing the kingdom of heaven on earth always means rendering more to Caesar than what was originally due.”

Quite. And that, sadly, can be true of the right just as much as the left.
