The Hypocrisy of the New Christian Left
Following the 2004 election loss for Democrats, the left systematically planned and executed a political/religious movement designed specifically to counter the Christian right that had grown and happened naturally over time not by design of the Republican party.
(CBS NEWS) July 10 2006- At a church in Washington, hundreds of committed Christians met recently and tried to map out a strategy to get their values into the political debate.
But these are not the conservative Christian values which have been so influential lately. This is the religious left.
"Jesus called us to love our neighbor, love our enemy, care for the poor, care for the outcast, and that's really the moral core of where we think the nation ought to go," Dr. Bob Edgar, General Secretary of the National Council of Churches told CBS News correspondent Russ Mitchell.
So, it remains to be seen whether there's any action behind the words. But there's no doubt they're on a mission.
That was from 2006 and now we see it in full bloom where the President's own pastor is an America hating pundit spewing anti-Republican politics from the pulpit on a daily basis and pastors in every city preaching leftwing talking points to their flock while proclaiming those on the right need to adhere to separation of state and church.
Who was it that said "religion is the opiate of the masses"?
UPDATE: For those unfamiliar with the term "New Christian Left"- for you to enjoy.
