"Known for his distinctive baritone preaching voice and methodical delivery, Kennedy was a leading conservative in America's cultural battles and often used his broadcasts to touch on such issues as abortion, 'gay marriage' and evolution. In addition, he was well-known among evangelicals for his books and sermons about the nation's Christian founding fathers. "I am sorry for his family, but Kennedy did an awful lot of harm to our separation of church and state as well as the politicization of our faith. Oh, and his statements on history have been particularly harmful, and he was an advocate for Christian dominionism. Again, I am sorry for his family, but I will not miss him.
