>This is a real head scratcher for me. I have similar feelings to Jeff on this subject (No Longer Afraid of Constantinianism). I have heard so many left of center Christians complain about the fusion of religion and politics. However, pretty much all of their criticism is directed at conservatives. On the other hand we have those on the left such as Jim Wallis and Sojourners and Brian McLaren and the Matthew 25 Network who are just the other side of the same coin (as people such as James Dobson and Focus on the Family). Now on top of that we have the emergent pastor of Solomon’s Porch running for the state legislature of Minnesota. You can read about it here. I never hear these same people complaining when it involves those on the left. Maybe those people worried about religion and politics being in bed with each other will speak out against this. I guess we’ll see what happens.
