The Truce Gets A Boost

After the Wall Street Journal published an article by Richard Land of the Southern Baptist Convention titled, "Americans Don't Want a 'Truce' on Social Issues," its readers responded. The result is a page of letters defending Mitch Daniels and insisting that actually, that's exactly what a significant number of Americans want. Dish fave:

There is a deep longing in large segments of the American populace for recognition that one can be Christian and still able to see the many shades of gray coloring the complex social issues of our time. Mr. Land, and seemingly the entire "conservative Christian movement," would like to dismiss those of us who don't share his black-and-white view as moral relativists.

I congratulate Gov. Daniels for having the courage to acknowledge that there is only so much government can doa welcome confession to Christians who believe that absolute certainty in one's own correctness is less an expression of profound faith than human hubris.
