How Prayers Poll

Article

I heard about this guy who called himself "evangelical," said he lived a "Bible-centered life," had a personal relationship with Jesus Christ ? and voted for Al Gore over George W. Bush.

A confused, lonely, iconoclast? Actually, in 2000, at least 10 million white "evangelical Christians" voted for Gore.

Many people, especially secular liberals, misunderstand the nature of religion in politics?which is, to be fair, ever shifting. To them, if it's not about Jerry Falwell or Joe Lieberman, it's kind of a blur.

I know alot of warm fuzzy Christian liberals. I think that the break down in this article is quite interesting and Im curious to see what the next election brings. I predict it will be a wider shift to whatever candidate has the most commonsense policy.

Personally, I think Bush is out the door. Im amazed by the amount of people down here in the Bible belt that are abuzz with all his transgressions. I overhear them at dinner.. while at the grocery store.. at the fair.. various events in Midland/ Odessa his home town.

It makes me gleefull.
