Today’s Dispatch Hot Issue poll asks:

Do you believe your religion is the only way to salvation?

I was actually surprised by the results…

58% of respondents answered No either because they haven’t bought into the whole my-religion-is-the-only-true-religion brainwashing crap or, like me, they disagree with the basic premise of the question: that salvation is actually even possible.

Tim Dickinson’s take at Rolling Stone:

If you unpack this it’s really disgusting. He’s playing to all the worst classist and racist fears of the Greatest Generation. Obama’s the uppity black guy who some court forced your country club to admit and now he’s flaunting his sexual appetites — why is Rove […]
