God and other famous liberals.

That's the title of a good book by the Unitarian minister Forrest Church. Sadly, it's also a phrase that doesn't currently make a lot of political sense in the US. Amy Sullivan argues in the Washington Monthly that Democrats are making a fatal mistake by keeping religion under wraps in national politics. "Disaffected evangelical and Catholic moderates could find a natural home in the Democratic Party, which shares their values of social justice, concern for the earth, and economic equality," she writes. "They're not looking for a tent revival at the Democratic Convention. They're just looking for a little respect."
