David Kuo used to head up the President's office of Faith Based Initiatives and has just released a book criticizing members of the Administration as being, um, less than genuine in their cozying up to Christian conservatives. In a 60 Minutes piece last night, Kuo predicted immediate and scathing attacks from the President's lackies and it hasn't taken long for that prediction to ring true.
Jason Christy of the Church Report has posted this Christ-like rebuttal:
Don't be fooled by Kuo; he is someone who has been described as a "wolf in sheep's clothing." Don't let his smarmy tones and pouty eyes fool you. Having done campaign work for several Kennedys, having contradicted himself and his own letters, Kuo is being used to try and prop up the liberal left, to breathe life into lifeless campaigns and his master literary work is a mere smokescreen. Questioning the faith and motivation of this administration is wrong.
And for what? For saying the Bush administration hasn't been supportive enough of Christian values--oh, and for daring to say religion shouldn't be politicized:
"This message that has been sent out to Christians for a long time now: that Jesus came primarily for a political agenda, and recently primarily a right-wing political agenda - as if this culture war is a war for God. And it's not a war for God, it's a war for politics," said Kuo.
