If evolution is right about how humans came to be, then the biblical story of Adam and Eve isn't. If you believe, as evangelicals do, that God himself is responsible for what's in the Bible, you have a problem on your hands.

Bryan Fischer spoke to thunderous applause at the recent Values Voter Summit. That he was so well received should frighten those of us who care about liberty and justice in America.

So why have evangelicals been so ready to reject the generally accepted conclusions of the scientific community on climate change? It has nothing to do with climate science per se.

Kindness, generosity, peacefulness, hospitality, patience, self-control -- these are radical virtues that should define evangelicals. Instead, we are largely defined by what we are against.

As someone raised evangelical, I realize anti-evolutionists believe they are defending the Christian tradition. But as a seminary graduate now training to be a medical scientist, I can say that, in reality, they've abandoned it.

Why is it that people on middle ground always seem to be on the "other" team? Has everyone in the country decided that there is only "us" and "them," so that "not us" equals "them"?
