Elizabeth Bumiller’s Idiocy

Elizabeth Bumiller of the New York Times asked, at the end of the last
Democratic debate on Sunday, “Really quick.  Is God on our side?”

(You can find more facts and opinions here.)

Beyond the idiocy of such a question, it belies a fundamental
misunderstanding by may of the Northeastern liberal elite (of whom I’m
probably a member, on some level) about religion.  The better
question that Bumiller (and her lack-of-religious-understanding bedmate
George W. Bush) might ask: “Are we on God’s side?”

And there’s no easy answer, or even any answer to that question.
