Reading back through my posts in the Good Olde Days of 2005-2007, I ran across several railing against the idea that few acknowledged that there is a Religious Left that involves itself in politics and claims to speak for Jesus. We heard about the Religious Right endlessly for decades - still do - but the very idea there was a religious left was dismissed out of hand as fevered and conspiratorial. I had forgotten it was even an issue. I spent a fair bit of energy making my point, as in When I Say "Religious Left..." You might find it fun to read for it's historical value.
But no one doubts it now, do they? Maybe it was my brilliant arguing at the time that turned the tide, eh?
