Religion & Politics

  • Jesus Politics has a link to the "Black Contract With America on Moral Values." This would be the conservative black churches' agenda, but looking at it, I was struck by how unconservative most of it is. Yes, gay marriage gets top billing, but c'mon. When was the last time Karl Rove ever advocated prison reform? A curious document, indeed.


  • Perhaps the pastors mentioned above are trying to curry favor with dispensers of goodies prominent politicians like Rick Santorum and Arlen Specter. (Thanks to acbonin for the catch.)


  • Ron Sider on the "State of the Union on Poverty." Go. Read.


  • Ralph Reed wants a conservative governor for Iowa.


  • The Christian Science Monitor goes to Europe and discovers...the French think about religion differently than Americans. Hmm. We'll have to keep an eye on them, despite what Dear Leader says.
