    lots of the nondenominational crowd are theologically very close to SBC, although I don't know that they have been politically mobilized to the same extent. I'm open to evidence there.

    Megachurches vary considerably in their political views and mobilization. Here's something Rick Warren said about this point:

    The second myth is that mega-churches are politically active. In fact, you don't get to be a mega-church if you get involved in other issues. You would find that most of the churches that are politically active tend to be medium- or small-size churches. They are not the largest churches. And because they tend to get caught up in a political agenda, they don't grow to the size of others. The largest churches tend to focus on issues like the ones that we're focused on.

    I don't think that's exactly right, but there's something to it.
