Barak Obama continued his dramatic attempt to redraw America's political map yesterday when he met with a group of influential Evangelical Christian leaders in Chicago. According to an Associated Press story, the meeting actually has some of the Who's Who list of long-time Conservatives making some surprising, perhaps shocking, choices.
As Charisma Magazine publisher Steve Strang asserted, "Here is a liberal--Barak Obama--reaching out to the Christian community at a time when the conservative-- John McCain--seems to be distancing himself from the so-called Christian Right. I think McCain has a lot of work to do to get the support of the Christian community. Obama seemed to have the support of at least half of the 43 leaders who attended the Chicago meeting. And in my opinion, he made points with the rest."
We may very well be witnessing a sea change as Obama secures his right flank--a feat that would have been unthinkable even four years ago for a radical pro-abortion, pro-gay rights, pro-government schools, secularist Liberal.
