My wife loves this girl named Brooke on American Idol. But it’s not that she thinks she’s a particularly good singer or that she’s in possession of gobs and gobs of talent. The reason she likes her, the reason that so many Christians across the country dig her? She seems Christian. The key word in that sentence is “seems.” She hasn’t said that she is but at one point she admitted she had never gone to an R rated movie. Is that a reason to vote for her in a singing competition? Maybe not, but we love to pull for Christians. Love your neighbor? Sure. Vote for cute little David the Mormon instead of the possible believer Brooke? You’ll have to convince my wife.
Update: A reader sent me an article where Brooke talked about being a Mormon. We’ll always have Chris Daughtry.
