God as Divine Therapist?

From CNN:

Dean says more American teenagers are embracing what she calls “moralistic therapeutic deism.” Translation: It’s a watered-down faith that portrays God as a “divine therapist” whose chief goal is to boost people’s self-esteem.

Check out the article and let me know what you think. Are parents watering down Christianity for the sake of their children’s self-esteem, or is it a natural progression of Christianity as people come to understand God better?

Exit polls are funny

We’re watching CNN at FnC while Brian talks (he was willing to have it running silently in the background so people would come instead of staying home), and it’s been really funny to see the results popping up.

Iowa has been projected for Obama with 0% of precincts reporting. It’s absurd. But to help balance that, Utah has been called for McCain… also with 0% of precincts reporting.

Even better are places like New Mexico, which has been declared for Obama despite the fact that only 6% of precints have reported in and McCain is currently beating Obama by 2 to 1.

We know how horribly inaccurate exit polls are, so why do they keep reporting on them?
