Christianism In Its Essence --- posted by Andrew Sullivan. You won't believe the Sarah Palin quote.... Read it.
From Mr. Sullivan:
If the context, meaning and implications of this sort of conservatism still befuddle you, if you still think of yourself as a conservative but do not fathom how a former beauty queen sportscaster is now most likely the future of the GOP, please read my prediction and analysis of this development in "The Conservative Soul: Fundamentalism, Freedom and the Future Of The Right."
I know this is a shameless plug, but the money will all go to Harper Collins, not me. And I wrote that book not for the money, but for the message. But I do not believe you can understand contemporary conservatism as a political entity. It is a religious entity. And until more Americans understand its true nature, they will keep getting surprised by the virulence of its message and the power of its momentum.
