Rod Dreher’s making a good deal of sense today. I frankly couldn’t care less what (if any!) religion a political candidate happens to practice. A candidate who exhibits integrity and shares my political views will get my vote. End of story.
Christoper Hitchens, on the other hand, went on a rant about Chanukah on Monday. Mind you, it’s a rant that gets quite a bit wrong. The Maccabean revolt wasn’t a revolt against philosophy or beauty; it was a fight against a severe religious persecution that sought to wipe out a faith. Or has Mr. Hitchens forgotten just what Antiochus Epiphanes did in Judea?
