Jeff Sharlet weighs in on Obama/Warren

December 21, 2008

Jeff Sharlet, author of The Family, weighs in on Obama/Warren, although the word “Obama” doesn’t actually appear in his article.

A media establishment that defines itself as “moderate” in all things — as if moderation wasn’t a political pose — needs religion it can define as good (read: innocuous). This, of course, is as much of an insult to believers as to those who oppose sectarianism in official life.

After that Sharlet does just enough to connect the current controversy to his book.
