Will Wilkinson is a contributing opinion writer for The New York Times and, even better, a Vox columnist, so we’re thinking we’re going to be reaching for that “Vox Site Safety” sign pretty quickly. Combine the sort of person Vox would hire as a columnist and Christianity and you know you’re in for a treat.

What seems to be bothering Wilkinson is a piece in The Economist claiming that evangelicals “have become increasingly likely to support Republican candidates for office.” We don’t doubt that, but for the life of us, we just can’t figure out what Wilkinson is trying to say in these tweets:

OK, wait. The core of “standard” Christianity is unconditional love, especially for the most vulnerable among us — but that says nothing about abortion? What?

Hey Will, the Constitution also doesn’t say anything about abortion, but the experts managed to find it in there.

It is, but he’s not done yet.

“Moral personhood.” OK, so since we’re making up terms here, when exactly does “moral personhood” begin? Is this one of those magical things that happens at delivery but not one moment earlier?

That’s the most self-unaware thing we’ve read today.
