The Catch-22 of the religious left
If you believe the state should take and spend other people’s money on social programmes you condone its use of force in places like Iraq... or on the church.

The five denominations listed, along with the Unitarians, are competing for the same shrinking, increasingly irreligious liberal white upper middle class in the States (their numbers are pegged to the white birth rate), and these five are slowly merging (basically COCU is happening after all).

The Protestant religious wrong
Neither Catholic nor secular-but-authentically conservative (identified rightly or wrongly with early-1960s Barry Goldwater for example)

From LRC.
