Evangelical Diversity Article in the Washington Post

A thoughtful article about the diversity of perspectives in the Evangelical Christian camp. I think this is important because the religious media czars are all a lot of people ever see, but there is a lot more out there.

Let's Stop Stereotyping Evangelicals

"Whether or not that's true, these evangelicals -- Bible-believing and socially conservative -- are redefining social justice. They're mindful of the material conditions that breed poverty and despair, but they emphasize spiritual rebirth. Though willing to partner with government agencies, they prefer to work at the grass roots, one family at a time.

Thanks Nate!

An unnamed Department of Labor employee sent me this factoid by email:

"To the stereotyping evangelicals entry... To illustrate the last couple lines, FEMA (I think and if not, some other org. down there), has said that churches have been by far the most beneficial and effective, in all aspects of the Katrina recovery project. Too bad that doesn't go any further than the parishes in which they were/are working."
