Liberal Evangelicals for McCain

A bit late to make much of a difference in people's voting, but Anne Morse of Prison Fellowship (most CT readers will recognize her as the coauthor of Charles Colson's columns) offers reasons why evangelicals concerned about social justice should be rooting for McCain tonight, not Obama. It's not quite clear why she thinks only "liberal evangelicals" care about social justice (I know a lot of very conservative evangelicals who care about poverty and AIDS), but here's her argument:

Liberal evangelicals who think McCain is against social justice need to look at his website more thoroughly and consider that certain topics they might have ignored are actually very relevant to social justice. For instance, he's in favor of funding scholarships, charter schools, and tutoring for poor students stuck in bad public schools.

Social justice, anyone? ...

To put it another way: John McCain is fighting global poverty and has a strong record of promoting justice on an international scale.
