Kuo's book is cause for disappointment, not joy, among Christians who aren't right-wing Republicans. Christians with different political perspectives should regard these matters as a cautionary tale, a pit into which any politically active religious community may fall if it loses focus and fails to practice accountability. Political parties organize around doing what it takes to win elections. When religious communities participate in policy and politics, however, they should be guided by principle rather than partisanship.
Of course, the big question in Washington right now is how Kuo's book will affect the midterm elections. That is neither my focus nor my time frame. To me, the most important question is whether more Christians will reevaluate the relationship between their faith and partisan politics. If a sufficient number of Christians do so, it may or may not be good for the fortunes of one or another political party. But it will be good for our faith and good for America.
I'm still waiting for UPS to deliver my copy of Kuo's book.
