The Washington Post has asked members of its “On Faith” panel the following question:
As the presidential campaign begins to take shape, do you think it is appropriate and or important for the candidates to express their personal religious views and to use religious rhetoric? Why?
Bishop John Bryson Chane’s response is currently featured in a link from the Post’s homepage.
I am glad the Post has initiated the”On Faith” feature, but even in comparison to other online religion sites, the comments tend to stray off topic almost immediately as people ride their favorite hobby horses.
