The Sermonizing Doesn't Stop


Satveer Chaudhary, a practicing Hindu, was elected a state senator in Minnesota. His opponent, Rae Hart Anderson, whose campaign materials focus quite strongly on her "Christian faith," sent him an e-mail rather than phoning to concedede the race; in the e-mail she proceeds to try and convert him to Christianity.

The message continued, "God waits to be gracious to each person that knows they need to be forgiven. Do you? I think you do. "

"When I read it I just shook my head," said Chaudhary. "This just sums up the type of campaign voters were rejecting."

I can't imagine what good she thought she was doing; even more, I can't see how being rude by failing to deliver the concession by phone was going to in any way enhance her "Christian" message.
