The Heart of Christianity

Doug Wilson (who I disagree with on certain issues is spot on here) quotes President Obama and offers an excellent response.

President Obama (discussing the proposed ‘Ground Zero’ mosque): "For in the end, we remain 'one nation, under God, indivisible.' And we can only achieve 'liberty and justice for all' if we live by that one rule at the heart of every religion, including Islam-that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us.”

Doug Wilson: “That religion is Americanism, ick, poo, a religion that wants all the "sectarian" faiths to take their place on the god shelf, and adopt as their central belief whatever the president says their core values ought to be. But in the case of the Christian faith, it is not the Golden Rule -- the heart of Christian ethics, sure, but ethics is not the gospel. Christ crucified, buried, and risen -- that's the rule at the heart of our faith. Not only is it the center of our faith, it is a center that cannot, by any means, be made to fit on the rickety god shelf of the secularists.”
