Obituary for the Religious Right

Cal Thomas, himself a committed evangelical Christian, has written an obituary for the Religious Right. His point, which he makes very well, is that, for thirty years or more, many evangelical Christians, some with national TV or radio pulpits, have been trying to change the US through the ballot box.

It hasn't worked. It won't work. It shouldn't work.

Thomas suggests another way. He's not the first.

The way to change the US is through -- radical thought! -- being like Christ, to those around us.

Thanks, julana.

The power of thought is stronger than the majority of the population realizes.

Thanks, barbara martin. Being like Christ is a radical thought, and it's powerful.
