Since when did believing in God and having moral values make you pro-war, pro-rich, and solely pro-Republican? And since when did promoting and pursuing a progressive social agenda with a concern for economic security, health care, and educational opportunity mean you had to put faith in God aside?

Great read - takes both the left and the right to task, and lays out what our priorities ought to be, based on what the Bible has to say. Explains the value of faith in public policy while discrediting single-issue evangelical screeching. I'm sure some will claim it has a liberal slant - I don't think it let the left off the hook at all.
