Check the historical record

Because God is revealed through history, say some. Including Sam Brownback, in his announcement of his candidacy for the Republican nomination for President in 2008:
The two-term senator said he will fight to renew the nation's cultural values and pledged to focus on rebuilding families.

"Search the record of history. To walk away from the Almighty is to embrace decline for a nation," Brownback said. "To embrace Him leads to renewal, for individuals and for nations."

OK, lets check the record:
394 AD - Emperor Theodosious declares Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire.
410 AD - The Visigoths sack Rome (D'oh!)

Sam Brownback, in his announcement of his candidacy...


Another vanity candidate who will have dropped out of the race by the end of '07.

Gad, I wish they'd all drop out.

Did you hear Hillary channeling Karen Hughes? Or was it Martha Stewart?

Actually, what little I've heard Brownback say -- and it's very little -- it's kind of hard to disagree with. Not the god part, but the be nice part.

The problem is not so much what he believes but why.
