The Miami Herald reports on the “religious left” movement to woo Christians away from conservatism with a new focus on poverty, privacy, and environmentalism. Will conservative Christians trade the crucial life and family issues for fluffy liberalism? Only time will tell.
''They will completely lack credibility if they turn a blind eye to the sanctity of life and marriage,'' he [John Stemberger] said. ``They can have their little conference in Washington, but they're never going to attract serious-minded Christians.' "
''They're really ramping it up because they've seen what value voters accomplished in the last race,'' said Stemberger, whose group recently hosted 600 people at an Orlando fundraiser. ``I don't think it's sincere . . . You can't hire consultants to learn how to talk to Christians.''
Frank Pastore provides a helpful critique of the recent discussion about liberalism and religion at TownHall.
