Does Evil Exist?

While I admire Rick Warren in many ways, I also believe (like my younger brother) that he is out of his cotton pickin' mind in some regards. Nevertheless, I have listened with great interest to excerpts from the "Faith Forum" that Warren hosted this past weekend with John McCain and Barack Obama. At the Forum, Warren asked each candidate the same two part question, "Does evil exist? And if it does, do we ignore it, negotiate with it, contain it, or defeat it?"

I am tempted to provide my own commentary on the candidates' responses, but I think they speak volumes for themselves. For those of you who mistakenly believe there's no significant difference between the two candidates, I challenge you to watch this clip.
