In his current posting on Redstate Erick has a fear because:
Evangelicals have, over the past few decades, gotten involved in the rough and tumble world of politics sometimes too politically and sometimes exploitatively.
This has driven up the cynicism of young Christians already being wooed by a world that cleverly casts out Christian sinners as hypocrites, helping undermine trust.How is it possible that anyone could see Christians as hypocrites?
Could it possibly be because of self-professed Christian Erick Erickson who posted the following on his twitter account?
The nation loses the only goat fucking child molester to ever serve on the Supreme Court in David Souter's retirement.I can't claim to be a Christian like Erick Erickson but I do remember the Commandment "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour". Unless Erick has some evidence that the rest of the country isn't privy too I'd call his statement a bald faced lie. And pretty vindictive at that.
Maybe what he really needs is someone to explain the meaning of hypocrisy.
