David Brat's Public Theology


Michelle Boorstein, in the Washington Post writes a 
long, not very astute article about David Brat, comparing and contrasting him to Pope Francis, without really understanding either. Does David Brat? He describes himself as a Calvinist, who goes to a Catholic church. 

But this is what jumped out at me. A statement by David Brat in 2011
“Give me a country in 1600 that had a Protestant-led contest for religious and political power and I will show you a country that is rich today,” Brat wrote in 2011.

Well, that convinces me.
