Obama's Meeting with Evangelicals

Charisma magazine's Stephen Strang reports on Obama's meeting with top Evangelicals. Here is the money quote:
But the most significant thing is just the fact that the meeting was held and that several dozen prominent leaders took time to meet with Sen. Obama who I believe won over the loyalties of many.

I urge Sen. John McCain to have a similar meeting-or several such meetings. There is a lot of latent support for him in the Christian community. But after being "still armed" by the McCain camp, while being wooed by the Obama camp, this may be the first time a majority of evangelicals will vote for a Democrat for president since Jimmy Carter, who talked of being "born again" and got many evangelical votes in 1976."
