That Newsweek piece...I've read different takes on Lincoln. I've read he was a most religious man. Perhaps he got a whle lot of religion during the turnign tides of the Civil War.
The Newsweek piece you linked, is written by the Editor of Newsweek. Believe he is from the Episcopal Church. Like the (Roman) Catholic Church, they are having their issues. This week, I'll be interested in getting a copy of Newsweek. The cover story has to do with the pastor of the church I attend, debating one of the foremost atheists in America. Should be out on the stands by now.
