This is an interesting piece from NY Times.

What does Hillary, Obama and Huckabee show to us (sex, race and Christianity)?

At a New York or Los Angeles cocktail party, few would dare make a pejorative comment about Barack Obama’s race or Hillary Clinton’s sex. Yet it would be easy to get away with deriding Mike Huckabee’s religious faith. Liberals believe deeply in tolerance and over the last century have led the battles against prejudices of all kinds, but we have a blind spot about Christian evangelicals. They constitute one of the few minorities that, on the American coasts or university campuses, it remains fashionable to mock.

What has the libs done? Why are they not in Darfur, Burma, Laos, Tibet or Iraq helping someone in great need? Many are busy mocking the Christians or indulging in their own flesh…

In parts of Africa where bandits and warlords shoot or rape anything that moves, you often find that the only groups still operating are Doctors Without Borders and religious aid workers: crazy doctors and crazy Christians. In the town of Rutshuru in war-ravaged Congo, I found starving children, raped widows and shellshocked survivors. And there was a determined Catholic nun from Poland, serenely running a church clinic.

That is why the challenge by Greg Bahnsen in the great debate to the atheists still left unanswered till today!
