Something from NewDonkey to make you go hmmmmmm:

The National Association of Evangelicals, with 50,000 church affiliates representing 30 million or so people, is meeting next week in Washington, where it will consider a manifesto on "civic responsibility" that might cause Karl Rove some heartburn.

To be sure, the manifesto reiterates familiar Christian conservative positions on abortion, gay marriage, and so forth, but also has surprisingly bold sections on economic justice, environmental stewardship, and even war and peace.

Regular church-going does not make you a conservative. It's not an automatic thing. Jesus helped the poor and the sick and a lot of people get that message in church. You can go to church every week and never even think about voting for Bush for a single moment. Take my parents. Please.
