It’s official. Let the numbing and liquidation of Christianity begin.

The quick-thinking, always grapsing, never quitting creative team of now Democratic Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, has created “Operation Joshua Generation” designed exclusively to reach out to the body of Christ.

Get it? Joshua? The name is based on the biblical story of how Joshua’s generation led the Israelites into the Promised Land. Again, get it? Promised Land? The sarcosanct real estate in question would have large WHITE columns attached to a big WHITE HOUSE.

Obama’s cracked staff even went so far as to give David Brody, CBN’s senior correspondent, the exclusive. No, that’s not a typo. C-B-N, as in Pat Robertson’s network. They figure most politically-active faith-based folk watch him, as if his comments about Hurricane Katrina and Islam hasn’t shunned away most of them already.

At any rate, Obama’s rhetoric is in full swing unveiling this kitschy stunt… er, focused outreach. He has even gone so far to tie in Joshua’s steps around to Jericho to that of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s march across the Edmund Pettis Bridge en route to Montgomery:

“I’m here because somebody marched. I’m here because you all sacrificed for me. I stand on the shoulders of giants. I thank the Moses generation; but we’ve got to remember, now, that Joshua still had a job to do.”

As Brody reports, “The folks behind this believe in not only the mission of winning over faith voters to Obama but the larger mission of not ignoring faith voters when it comes to politics.” This may be true, but Wall Watchers, lest not you forget how this concerned candidate feels about other issues we keep close to the vest like abortion, civil liberties (NOT rights) and the divisive fuse ready to spark between church and state.

Nonetheless, to maintain my non-partisan (not to be confused with apolitical, which I certainly am not), kudos to Senator Obama for not believing the hype that all Christians care about is if their candidate du jour say ‘Jesus’ during a televised speech. Note the acclaimed popularity of our current President among the body of Christ and anyone will note that the Church cares a lot more about gas prices, the environment and political ethics than most think.
