And Jesus went on with his disciples to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And on the way he asked his disciples, "Who do people say that I am?"
The "I Stand With God Pro-Family" political rally featuring Republican presidential hopeful Gov. Mike Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, has upset political ministers of the left. They disagree with the politics and with the rally's titular implication that so doing means they do not stand with God. It's an understandable objection.
They write their rebuke in The News & Observer, do William Barber and Timothy Tyson, and do they seek to rebuke the rally for using Jesus for political partisanship and remind them of Jesus' ultimate mission, the reason Jesus came down among us?
No, sadly. They do the former, but only to replace using Jesus for conservative political partisanship with … using Jesus for leftist political partisanship.
And then they fail their own test, to boot.
