Evangelicals in Washington

The scariest article I've read in months: on how the wingjobs in Washington are struggling to cope with what it means to have become the establishment. Money:
"This new generation has the same convictions but without the edge," says Michael Cromartie, an evangelical scholar at the Ethics and Public Policy Center. "They may believe all the same things, but they are not going to go on 'Larry King Live' and say all homosexuals should die. They've learned how to present themselves."

"How to present themselves...."

Scary, yes, but galvanizing, too.

(Note: the article centers on a woman with the unbelievable name of "Lyric Hassler"; that alone is worth clicking on the link for.)
