Elections, Republicans and the Bible in today’s letters to the editor.
Pick of the day: Political exegesis cuts both ways
In an opinion in the Wall Street Journal, Karl Rove lists an act of God as one of his excuses for Mitt Romney’s losing of the election:
“The president was also lucky.
“This time, the October surprise was not a dirty trick but an act of God.
“Hurricane Sandy interrupted Mr. Romney’s momentum and allowed Mr. Obama to look presidential and bipartisan.”
You can’t have it both ways; if this was an act of God, then doesn’t it stand to reason that God must have wanted Barack Obama to win?
