Confessions of a Silent Prophet

By Keith Pavlischek

David P. Gushee, distinguished university professor of Christian ethics at Mercer University and president of Evangelicals for Human Rights has taken to the pages of USA Today to confess—well, sort of—that things haven’t turned out exactly as he had hoped with President Obama. Gushee identifies himself as one among “a group of self-identified centrist or moderate evangelicals” who had “built a friendly relationship with Barack Obama and rejected the Christian right’s vilification of him.” Yes, of course, following close to script, Gushee, as a “centrist” or “moderate” must vilify the Christian right’s vilification before proceeding to confession.
