Obama's Theology

Poulos responds to my post on Bloomberg and Thatcher:

...what troubles me even more than the slide of right-wing politics toward a kind of theologically-frosted ideology is the slide of theology itself toward a therapeutic leftist politics of experiencing a sense of meaning through the symbolic group performance of the rhetoric of compassion. As relieving as it is to see how calm and collected Obama can be in office, I can’t help but shudder at the prospect of our future public theology as suggested by how soaring and transcendent he can be at the podium.
