Belief Bytes: Your Thursday Religion Roundup

From Religion News Services’ David Gibson, it’s mostly political news most of the time in today’s Religion News Roundup. I especially like the reference to Dylan Thomas’ lovely poem and the link.

Here’s a nibble:

Rick Perry, once the Great Evangelical Hope, is dropping out. Was he ever in it?

Perry reportedly will throw his support – and both his supporters – behind Newt Gingrich. That should ice it.

Tough day all around for Mitt Romney: Turns out Rick Santorum actually won the Iowa caucuses, so he can claim he is doing as well as Mitt – until Saturday, at least.

The churn brings us to our Existential Question-of-the-Day: Is the Religious Right dead or alive?

On life support? Or just kidding themselves?

If the Christian right is dying as a political force, it is not going gentle into that good night. To wit:

Romney’s four (now three) challengers ripped into him last night at a pro-life forum in South Carolina last night. Romney, perhaps wisely, was not there.”
