Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
The "evangelical left" people with whom I had the most personal experience tended A. to be in religious training, or religious vocations, because of their faith, and B. to find that they perceived the goals and actions of the "left" to be more in accord with Christian principles than those of the "right". I personally didn't see any of them "politicing" their faith, or seeking to gain power for their religious organizations; they were more apt to be marching with whatever Jew, atheist, or Zaroastrian that happened to be protesting against the Viet Nam war or active for civil rights.
