    Warren personally, how do you know

    Rick Warren is a wonderful Christian who does care for the poor.

    I also know a lot of people with right wing political views who do a lot of volunteer work and care for the poor. Knowing other socially progressive right wingers doesn't mean Warren is a wonderful Christian who cares for the poor.

    Given that most of the people who responded to this diary think the opposite, I am wondering what brings you to the conclusion you have drawn about Warren.

    What do you mean by

    a straight forward reading of the Bible
    ? Is that how you see left wing fundamentalist Christianity differs from right wing fundamentalist Christianity? Are there any other differences between the two? If you find all verses of the bible relevant, how would a left wing fundamentalist Christian act on the verses of Leviticus, for instance?

    You asked

    Do you think people here would be interested in this diary?
    Perhaps. But I am probably not the best person to ask.

    From my experience reading and commenting on (not writing) the diaries on Daily Kos, I would suggest you be prepared to have your diary dissected thoroughly. There are very intelligent (and sometimes argumentative) people in this forum. How thick is your skin? How brave and sure are you? Are you willing to stand up for your points and back them with reliable sources? IMHO, writing here is not for the faint of heart or the writer of little conviction.

    On the other hand, what do you have to lose?
