    And maybe I didn't do a strong enough job pointing out that not all Christians of course by into this propaganda.

    But my key point was more about the fact that there is a creeping scourge on a faith with many great members who have done many great things.

    I don't want to dismiss all of Christianity, the implication of a War on Christianity implies that there are two sides.. including one who stands up for the principles of the master.

    But it certainly doesn't stop a group from basically ignoring their own teachings to harm others.

      diaries at DK?  Seems like instead of poking folks of different faiths--especially the Catholic church and the evangelicals--we should be doing more to show them that liberals/progressives have a message that is much more in tune with their beliefs?  Why not find organizations within these faith traditions that support much of what we do and invite them in?  

      Two examples off the top of my head are the National Catholic Rurual Life Network has a lot of stuff that aligns with most of us here:


      The Sojournors

      If we disagree with these groups on some issues, fine, we already disagree with each other on a whole array of issues.  What I don't think is very productive is what seems like a drumbeat of anti-Catholic, anti-religious diaries that really do nothing but drive folks away.
