Is the Wish Father to the Thought?

This piece claims that the evangelical movement is "cracking up."

I'm not sure that I'd trust the New York Times for the most accurate account of the inner working of the evangelical mind and movement. Are there differences among evangelicals? Of course. But that's testimony, quite frankly, to the burgeoning numbers of visible, influential evangelicals on the national scene.

And if one is going to leap from the theological to the political, the phenomenon is advantageous for Republicans, not Democrats. For no matter how hard some Dems try to court the religious, ultimately they're going to have trouble convincing most Bible-believing Americans that unproven allegations of manmde global warming trump events that currently take place -- like the millions of abortions each year in America.
