Evangelicals and the Religious Right

Anyone who knows about the work of Jim Wallace and Sojourner magazine, or reflects on the Reverend Martin Luther King's work, knows that Evangelicalism has never been as attached to the Right in politics as it is today.

This New York Times story Disowning Conservative Politics Is Costly for Evangelical Pastor, 7/29/2006, is very interesting indeed.
“When the church wins the culture wars, it inevitably loses,” Mr. Boyd preached. “When it conquers the world, it becomes the world. When you put your trust in the sword, you lose the cross.”
