Dr. D. James Kennedy, RIP

Headlines are reading today that a "megachurch pastor" has died. In the current climate that tells most people all they need to know, I suppose, but it's hard to overemphasize the impact of the ministry of Dr. Kennedy over the last several decades. An unfriendly-to-Christians article in Rolling Stone a couple of years ago called him "the most influential evangelical you've never heard of."

That pretty well sums it up. The scourge of leftists and squishy Christians, Dr. Kennedy upheld without fear or compromise a Christian vision of America at a time when it was vanishing from memory. In this regard he held the fort for the next generation of believers, which seems to be less ashamed of what made America great and will certainly advance that vision.
