It’s always the right wing that gets accused of mixing in religion and politics. We get accused of bringing God into politics. The left doesn’t so much as bring God into politics, they just elevate their politicians to divinely inspired levels. (See: Obama)
One editorial in the Boston Globe: “Like all figures in history — and like those in the Bible, for that matter — Kennedy came with flaws. Moses had a temper. Peter betrayed Jesus. Kennedy had Chappaquiddick, a moment of tremendous moral collapse.”
Moses? Peter? Give me a break.
As Jonah Godberg rightly points out in NRO Peter did not betray Jesus but did deny Him.
But I guess it’s too much to ask journalists to understand the religious references they’re making.
