» WaPo: Fix Picks: The Secret to Giuliani's Success (Chris Cillizza)
Second, Giuliani has found a way to speak to religious voters, not by drawing on his own personal faith but rather by emphasizing "an alternative vein of American religious thought -- the gospel of success." As Von Drehle notes, the idea that God wants his followers to be successful has gained considerable traction among people of religious faith and is touted by such well-known preachers as Rick Warren and Joel Osteen.
Shouldn't the bigger (and more newsworthy) story be that there might be preachers out there who tout the opposite?
Granted, Cillizza is a political reporter, not on the religion beat. But still.
