Understanding the faith of Dan Rather

Theology matters. What a person believes about the makeup of the universe will affect how he makes his daily decisions. Geoffrey Hunt at The American Thinker has applied that observation to answer one of the unanswered questions about Rathergate, as well as a number of others floating around it:
Indeed, religious belief transcends human experience. Religious people, reinforced by shared values and faith that cannot be reduced to scientific analysis and analytic propositions, try but usually fail to co-opt language in expressing the inexpressible. The religious notions of the supernatural, for example, have no analog in a mathematical proof. Either you believe or you don't.

If you haven't seen the ideas of Tertullian and Aristotle applied to 2004 politics recently, it's worth a read.
