  •  Reaching out to evangelicals - or others? (1+ / 0-)

    Perhaps because some of them can be so loud and noisy "evangelical" seems to get applied as an equivalent term to "Christian" or "religious". It's not. Far more Americans claim to be religious than claim to be evangelical; and even among evangelical faiths many are not of the stereotypical "right wing fundie" in belief or practice.

      I do mean evangelicals.  They seem to be more obviously focused on community outreach and hence would probably be more of a target for these kinds of programs.  It helps Obama build his base with this demographic.

      My problem is that the program seems to be currently administered in a way that escapes scrutiny and promotes certain organizations over others, and I hope he would change that.  I will be a difficult task to accomplish.

        That should be "It will be a difficult task to accomplish."
