Christian university reps attend White House policy briefing on Iraq, Afghanistan

Two political science professors, a theology dean and a president of universities associated with Churches of Christ were invited to the White House recently to discuss U.S. policy in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Participants included Randy Lowry, president of Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn.; Mark Elrod, political science professor at Harding University in Searcy, Ark.; Mark Hamilton, associate dean of the graduate school of theology at Abilene Christian University in Texas; and Caron Gentry, associate professor of political science at ACU.
The Abilene Reporter-News reported on the ACU representatives’ experience. The Link, Harding’s student news website, interviewed Elrod. And a Lipscomb news release explains Lowry’s role and credentials.

    I find this very interesting. The Obama administration is now reaching out to the Christian community to seek advice on policy. And, I just read (on the Drudge Report) that the Obamas went to church this morning. Could this be a “repositioning” in advance of the November elections? Just wondering.
