Former Senator Danforth Doesn't Like Christian Conservative Influence in Politics

I'm a Christian. And I'm conservative. I can give you a Christian-based critique on the "Religious Right" and some mistakes I think they make. But Danforth has a more theologically liberal critique:
As a mainline Episcopal priest, retired U.S. senator and diplomat, Danforth worships a humbler God and considers the right's certainty a sin. Legislating against gay marriage, for instance? "It's just cussedness." As he sees it, many Republican leaders have lost their bearings and, if they don't change, will lose their grip on power. Not to mention make the United States a meaner place.

So Danforth is certain that certainty is a sin.

Let's all scour our Bibles for the instances where "humble" is mentioned as an attribute of God!
