The Left Eats Its Own: NYT Profile Shows Deep Rift Between Christian and Secular Progressives

On Sunday, The New York Times published a story about the religious Left on the front page, suggesting a resurgence of Christian liberals in politics. But buried deep in the report was a stunning admission: religious liberals are at loggerheads with “secular fundamentalists,” and the Democratic Party fears to promote religious voices in its ranks.

“Most progressive religious leaders I talk to, almost all of them, feel dissed by the left,” the Reverend Jim Wallis, founder and president of Sojourners, told the Times. “The left is really controlled by a lot of secular fundamentalists.”

    The left are far more dangerous fundamentalists than any Christian fundamentalists I am aware of.

    Hmm. Jimmy Carter is an Evangelical. I wonder how he feels about this.

    Progressive Christians. The bottom of the useful idiots pecking order.

  • Why would Christians ever think that leftists were their friends?

    Perhaps it is my ignorance as a non Christian, but I fail to see how one can be both a Christian and a “progressive”. They are two opposing faiths in my opinion.
