Incumbent Democrat airs overtly religious campaign ad

Mark-Pryor-ad

A campaign ad for U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, an Arkansas Democrat, seems at first blush to be better-suited for a candidate of the Religious Right.

Blogger Andrew Sullivan has PULLED TOGETHER several analytical pieces about Pryor’s ad (a video of which is included) and offers his own slant on the matter:

I actually thought it [the campaign ad] was pretty inoffensive. It doesn’t cross the line into Christianism of right or left, because he leaves space for disagreement on how a Christian might respond to emergent problems in a multi-cultural society. And it may seem a little desperate, but not completely phony to me.
