Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley apologized Wednesday for his inauguration day remarks about only Christians being his brothers and sisters and said he would work over the next four years for people of all faiths and colors.
What a screw up! Of course, from a theological point of view, Bentley is correct, and as a Christian he should be able to say this. We are all created in God’s image, but we are not all brothers and sisters in Christ. (ML King had a better cadence when he said we are all God’s children.) But as governor, Bentley should have been much more careful in what he said and how he said it, since in that office he represents everyone.
