Metaxas’ Piercing Words to the President

My friend Todd Leonard brought this to my attention last night. I am only familiar with Metaxas’ name through his Bonhoeffer biography, and a passing reference from Stephen Mansfield, but it will be hard to forget his name from now on. Mark Joseph summarizes the Metaxas’ speech on a piece at NRO. Metaxas’ phony religiosity speech is best summarized by this paragraph:

“When he was tempted in the desert, who was the one throwing Bible verses at him? Satan. That is a perfect picture of dead religion. Using the words of God to do the opposite of what God does. It’s grotesque when you think about it. It’s demonic.”

You can watch the speech here.
