why more than abortion matters...
Among those on the so-called Religious Right, it is common to reduce political interests to "life" issues-- most notably, abortion.
But in recent months, in the midst of the financial crisis and economic recession, I've gotten many letters and emails about fund-raising problems within Christian organizations.
Although such concerns don't rise to the level of abortion, they are non-trivial as well.
Beyond that, there are many issues which speak to "economic justice"-- another huge Biblical theme.
So, we only have so much time to invest in politics, but economics and political shenanigans within the economic sphere should not be dismissed out-of-hand.
