Clinton supporters aren't the only Democrats who aren't thrilled with the presumptive nominee. At a gathering today of Spiritual Progressives, a priest, a rabbi, a Muslim, and an evangelical Christian lamented Barack Obama's move toward the center.
Through his unabashed Christian faith, Obama is redefining the American Dream. His vision is one of individual freedom but tempered by obligation. Obama is pious and he is going to put us on a national diet.
The right wing evangelical agenda was never a quest for freedom; it was a quest to deny it to others. This year might see significant political, and yes, spiritual growth among the evangelical voting population
Supporters of Fr. Pflegler believe street-level advocates bring about the change Obama speaks so eloquently about. To turn away from that in the face of shoddy criticism seems to second guess their work.
