I read with hope Kathleen Parker's WaPo column suggesting that a new generation of the Christian Right might not be following their elders into politics. The problem, she notes, is pragmatism: 'defined as the compromising of principles'.

Global Review is a proponent of sharper distinctions between Christianity and politics (see here and here). I believe there is a place for people of uncompromising faith in politics, but that faith can only be invoked to defend issues that are clearly and purely moral (like abolition of slavery and protection of life).
