Terry Jeffrey, editor at large of Human Events, yesterday on CNN:
JEFFREY: Well, you know, first, we have to get into a pretty serious -- first of all, we would have to discern what actually Ann Coulter said and what actually Ann Coulter meant. And then are we really going to get into a debate in presidential campaigns about people's theology? Everybody is trying to say that we don't have a religious test for office in this country? Are we going to go to each candidate and ask them, OK, we want to know exactly what you think about the nature of Jesus Christ, the nature of Christianity, the nature of Judaism?

No. I don't think we want to get into that.

As long it's conventional wisdom that candidates should be talking about their faith, then they should be talking about their theology. Unless religious is just this ultimately meaningless contentless thing.
