When infamous political operative Roger Stone announced his conversion to Christianity in April, he knew there would be doubters. “I’m aware of the fact there are skeptics who are going to say, ‘Stone is posturing. Stone is maneuvering for public sympathy,'” he said.
Well, count me among the skeptics. But I don’t believe Stone wants sympathy; I think he wants power and sees religion as a means to get it.
I can’t judge the state of his soul, of course, nor can any mortal. But Stone — as I am certain he would agree — has made a career on unscrupulous calculation.
