Jim Daly, the head of Focus on the Family, has some interesting quotes in a LA Times article yesterday:
“If the Christian message has been too wrapped around the axle of the Republican Party, then a) that’s our fault, and b) we’ve got to rethink that.”
“I think what we’ve got to do in the Christian community is be far more humble … and not call it a war, a culture war.”

He also said it would behoove conservatives to forge a working relationship with the Obama administration, which he said he tried to do in the president’s first term, most prominently by taking part in the president’s efforts to combat fatherlessness, and encourage more two-parent families. Daly said that he and Obama share the experience of growing up without a father, and he hoped to continue working on the issue during Obama’s second term. “Frankly, after the election, I felt sorry for President Obama in one respect: He’s got a tough job,” Daly said. “We need to pray for him, as the Christian community. I mean … I think President Obama needs divine guidance.” He stressed that he did not mean that in a condescending or sarcastic way. “I’d say the same thing about Mitt Romney,” he said. About Obama, he added: “We have these differences and they’re deep, but in reality, he’s simply a human being. … If a Christian holds that back and he or she isn’t willing to pray in that way, they’re not living a Christian life in that regard. If hatred or anger has built up to that level, then they’re missing the Gospel of Christ.” Read the article here… Thoughts? Todd
