I've had a couple recent hit wherein someone has searched for "Joel Osteen on politics." Okay, folks, is this a big mystery which way he goes? Let's see: he's a fundamentalist "Christian," he's white, he's rich, and he lives in Texas (the American South). For the simple ones out there, the word that is usually included in that string of descriptors is Republican, maybe even conservative Republican. If you have rich, white, Christian and Democrat, generally we're talking about an Episcopalian or Congregationalist from the East, especially the Northeast. I realize I'm making a broad generalization here, but we are talking about the guy who thinks God wanted him to have a big, expensive house, and he had not a shred of guilt. Democrats who manage to earn or inherit wealth usually feel a little guilty about it: that's why they're Democrats.
