Every Christian who votes and pays taxes (me included) has already agreed to pay for our wars, for the deaths of small children caused by our drones, for the continuation of the injustice of Guantnamo, for the "rendition" of suspected terrorists to countries where they are tortured, sometimes to death, and - depending on what state you live in - for the salary of the person who will kill someone condemned to death. [...] the general silence of religious people about serious moral matters in which we are implicated as citizens is impressive, in an entirely negative way. [...] the narrowing of morality to matters involving sexuality, while we overlook such issues as torture, our shameful incarceration rate (America has more people under "correctional supervision" than Stalin had in his gulags), and the deaths of innocent people in wars no one seriously believes we can win - this truly is obscene.
