God-o-meter

Really there is nothing more important to our political discourse than ranking, although I suppose labeling is pretty important to. Anyway, here is a link to belief-net’s ranking of the candidates with a cute meter like interface.

Belief Net, whose mission is “to help people like you find, and walk, a spiritual path that will bring comfort, hope, clarity, strength, and happiness,” make efforts to even handedly represent the beliefs of all faith. In other words, they’re a bunch of lefties. So, I find their attacks on Obama frustrating. Not that I don’t think we should be careful not to repeat the mistakes of the Bush administration, but because my biggest problem with Bush is how he governed, not how he campaign. Thus, making the comparison to Bush is irritating.

For example, Obama is not going to employ people only from a Christian law school. Obama is not going to overrule scientists to meet is spiritual directives. At some point, the actual substance of what one is doing saying has to matter. It is different to say, we should help the poor because Jesus says so than to say we should invade Iraq because Jesus says so. Ug.
