The Clinton Sermon

In case you haven't seen this yet, it's a good antidote to the Keyes' "What would Jesus Do?" lecture: Clinton at Riverside Church in NYC on Sunday. (You can also watch it on C-Span.) Some highlights:
Politics and political involvement dictated by faith is not the exclusive province of the right wing. Religious values can include commitment to the common good, concern for the poor and vulnerable, the middle class families, the preservation of our God-given environment, unity over division, and for truth in campaign advertising. . . . And don’t let somebody [say] you’re not a good Christian because your views on certain issues don’t fit the party line on the values voters crowd. And remind them that all have sinned and fallen short of God's glory and all of us see through the glass darkly.
Update: I'm watching it on the c-span link now. Much better on video than on paper (or screen).
