  •  As much as I'd like religion to not play a role.. (3+ / 0-)

    in politics (as it tends to corrupt both politics and religion), we don't have much choice in the matter as the righties have not only hijacked the meaning of faith in political discourse, but they have invaded our churches, taking Jesus and replacing Him with an elephant.

    For liberal Christians, this isn't about getting votes.  It's about taking back our religion from the pharisaic people (Dobson, Robertson, and the like) and making it focused back on the teachings of Jesus.

    People tend to get worried in liberal circles about the discussion of religion because they have it anchored into their brain that religion=conservatism.  It's a false frame that we need to be continue fighting.
