It'll be interesting to see if anyone from Sojourners joins in here. Good on you, Jim (T) - I think that's the way to do it.

"His point is that the right does not care - has made the wrong moral choice."

I'd draw a distinction between the two halves of that sentence. It is perfectly possible to care deeply, and act on the basis of that care, and yet still make a wrong moral choice. In fact it happens all the time. I have no doubt whatsoever that we agree on that point anyway, even if we might apply it in different ways.

Political choices are moral choices. Otherwise they are just a kind of gambling or sport.
