But I'd feel a lot better if our side spent less time running down the religious right, and more time building a religious center-left. After all, those who fought for civil rights in the '60s saw standing up for their political convictions as a natural extension of their religious convictions. Reverend Martin Luther King filled the Mall with a sermon.OK, let's forget for the moment that the reason he mentioned the Mall was because of the recent march for abortion.
religion has generally been a negative influence on human history and America would be a more liberal, just place if religious expressions in politics died out entirely.There are some reasonable comments. At least, as of post time.
...No wonder the DLC has be marginalised by most upstanding liberals...
...Can we please lay off this religion bullshit? Great waste of a "guest post" spot. Can it... [from perennial favorite "Dave"]
