Bull Moose and Faith

I have been thinking about the left's stance on religion in politics for a little while now but haven't had a chance to write about it. Bull Moose has made a great argument;

"Consider the compassion and ecumenicism of the civil rights movement in contrast to the intolerance and the sectarianism of the contemporary religious right. It is no accident that many of the so-called pro-life judges endorsed by the religious right support gutting environmental and worker protection regulations of the past seventy years."

Read his full post - the left needs to be thinking about this seriously.
