Prepped blog: David Kuo, "Temping Faith" Author, Dies
Kuo was best known for his criticisms of the Bush-era Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.
An early MSNBC review shaped all the news coverage that followed, Kuo told CT in an interview in 2006. Kuo said Christians were sold on the idea of George W. Bush as pastor-in-chief, and they failed to recognize that Bush was not advocating for faith-based legislation or even for the poor.
"I don't know how anyone could be a Christian in politics and not be moved to think about matters of economic justice and social justice and racial justice," Kuo said.
Previous CT reports also cited Tempting Faith in regard to the declining influence of evangelicals in politics following the 2006 elections and noted "continuing ambivalence" toward the faith-based initiatives office.
