A friend sent this article from Salon to me. Salon is a left-leaning publication, so Evangelicals will be suspicious of it. The author is generally correct, however, in her assessment of the role of Evangelical Christians in American history.
The current Religious Right and its predecessors have found themselves on the wrong side of history many times in ways that propagated bigotry and other evils to which it leads.
This is a sobering call for Evangelicals to think deeply about the way they interpret the Bible regarding current events and social movements.
