A friend sent me this commentary from Rebecca Hamilton, a state representative in Oklahoma. Get this woman a platform, raise some money for her, and let's find a way to put her on the national stage! How refreshing to find a partisan - and a state representative is by definition a partisan - who is so willing to challenge her own party! Not that Hamilton is merely "all mavericky" a la Sarah Palin. Hamilton has clearly thought through the implications of what she says, looked at some of the deeper issues, and come to some conclusions that commend themselves to all of us who care about the relationship of politics and religion.
