Red, Blue, and Faithful

Reaction to the exchange has been predictable. Adam Gopnik of The New Yorker, for instance, was outraged — at Ryan. To say that faith informs everything you do is “disturbing and scary,” Gopnik insisted. “That’s a shocking answer — a mullah’s answer, what those scary Iranian ‘Ayatollahs’ he kept referring to when talking about Iran would say as well.”

By that standard, Gopnik must consider the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln mullah-like too.

And Biden. Biden freely admits that his faith informs his “social doctrine.” And social doctrine is a euphemism for political worldview.
