The Gospel According to Rick Scarborough

April 12, 2006

Ethics Daily has run a couple pieces this week on the Reverend Rick Scarborough, founder and president of Vision America. Scarborough's organization hosted the "War on Christians and the Values Voter" conference a couple weeks ago, where embattled Republican politician Tom DeLay spoke a few days before announcing his retirement from Congress.

Yesterday Ethics Daily ran a piece on Scarborough by Britt Towery, who used to know him. Today, Ethics Daily ran a column I wrote that takes a tongue-in-cheek look at some of Scarborough's recent statements and theology.

Both pieces hopefully work to urge Christians not to follow the example of Scarborough. We need to focus on sharing the love of Jesus, not trying to gain political power.
