“general conservatism” vs. “orthodox Christianity”

John Warwick Montgomery of Patrick Henry College made another appearance on Issues Etc. recently [mp3] and about 32:15 or so, while discussing the idea of a generic school prayer, suggests that politically active conservative Christians “easily confuse a general conservatism with orthodox Christianity.” He then goes on to suggest that Jesus is not a Republican.

That’s odd. I was under the impression that Patrick Henry College was nothing but an attempt on the part of right-wing Christian homeschoolers to take over America and establish a theocracy. Hmmmm. Perhaps it is, and Mr Montgomery just isn’t in on the plot.

In all seriousness, if you can stand to listen to Todd Wilken, and you can stand Montgomery’s pedantic, sing-songy delivery, almost every appearance he makes on Issues Etc. is interesting-to-fascinating.
