From yesterday, before called away for work/family/debate: I should perhaps have included the phrase “concept of” in my remarks about the differences between the Jewish (concept of) God, the Islamic (concept of) God, and the Christian (concept of) God. And then, there’s each individual’s concept of God, including that there is none at all! I did not mean to imply a pantheon of gods, each belonging to (and in possession of) a particular group of believers. For the purposes of this strip and this discussion, though, I think it’’s useful to consider the differences and how they might come into play in our political arena. Clearly the LDS concept of God is of great interest right now. Does the fact that He has changed His mind so many times about women, blacks, etc. have any bearing on Mitt’s reversibility (thanks, montessoriteacher)? Would Mitt be as changeable in the presidency as he has been to date? This would not be a matter of taking orders from the church, but of taking a cue from one’s deity as to how one might proceed.
