Michael Tomasky asks, "What kind of Christian is Barack Obama?" In that, he means, what is Barack Obama's real stance on gay marriage? Is he "really for gay marriage but just isn't ready to say it yet"? Or, Is he "actually and genuinely a Christian and is against gay marriage on pretty straightforward religious grounds"? Tomasky thinks the former is true but notes that the second option suggests Christianity automatically entails conservativism, ignoring the fact that "there are lots of kinds of Christians out there."
