Arriving thirty years late and ready to rumble...
After 30 years of sustained effort by leaders like Rev. Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Dr. James Dobson to merge evangelical Christianity with a conservative political agenda, a new grassroots progressive organization on the political left will announce its creation on Thursday in Jacksonville. The Christian Alliance for Progress is a national movement of Christians seeking to reclaim Christianity and transform American politics.
This new hard-hitting grassroots national Christian organization will be launched during an outdoor press conference at 10:00 am on Thursday, June 23 in Jacksonville, Florida across from the auditorium of the First Baptist Church of downtown Jacksonville at Beaver and Hogan Streets.
Unlike the Democrats, they actually have a platform—
The Christian Alliance for Progress will speak out when conservative Christians misrepresent the gospel to support their misguided political positions. The Christian Alliance for Progress, founded firmly on the teachings of the gospel, will stand for pursuing economic justice; responsible environmental stewardship; equality for gays and lesbians; honoring the sanctity of childbearing decisions through effective prevention, not criminalization of abortion; seeking peace, not war; and achieving health care for all Americans.
Best wishes. I hope they're prepared for the lions.
