“If evangelicals want to be relevant in American politics, we need stop focusing so much on things that divide us and start to focus on things that unite us. Unlike many older evangelicals, most younger evangelicals are not single issue voters. We recognize that corporate greed, environmental degradation, and war-mongering are just as much (if not more) of an affront to our faith than the same old issues that the old-guard evangelicals keep pushing. Times are changing and we must adapt.”
Question: How can the Christian right re-invent itself to become relevant again?
