A Washington Post report about Mark Sanford’s congressional election victory last night in South Carolina noted that Sanford “sounded a spiritual note in his address, thanking ‘god’s role in all of this,’ and calling himself an ‘imperfect man’ who was ‘saved by god’s grace.’”
Did I miss something? Has the Post, a little big for its britches, decided to decapitate (or at least decapitalize) God? Or is the reporter suggesting that Sanford’s god is not the real God? Or is it just a mistake?
UPDATE: Once WORLDmag.com reported this and the GetReligion blog quoted us and pushed the story forward, The Washington Post fixed the theological error and stated, “An earlier version of the post incorrectly did not capitalize the word ‘God’ in Sanford’s remarks.”
