As has been noted on this site and others, it is a great misfortune that Pat Robertson and the mainstream media both seem to think that he is a spokesman for evangelical Christianity. Many of us have bemoaned this fact and some of the inane things Robertson says on his 700 Club. Today I ran across a petition asking Pat to shut up and/or retire. Its pretty funny and pretty serious all at once.

Who would you suggest be the spokesman for evangelicalism? I’m not certain that there ought to be one at all, but in our media age of news-saturation there will always be people that fulfill such a role. I would think the ideal candidate would be someone who would be very reluctant to do it. No camera-hounds or those with media ambitions. Who do you suggest?
