In reply to comment: Most "Christians" who follow (see in situ)


most people who call themselves "christian" and are actively involved in a church are quite moderate/liberal politically. The "christian right" are only like 12% of the voting population and about 75% of the voting population claim to be christian.

The leadership of 9 out of 10 of the largest christian denominations in the US came out against the Iraq War on Just War Theory grounds. The dissenting leadership was of the Southern Baptists and a poll in the Baptist Record newsletter showed that 66% of them disagreed with the Iraq War.

The "christian left" are VERY politically active. Perhaps more so than the right. Catholics and United Methodists and other groups are legendary for their left-leaning activism.

I know more Fox News fans that are secular/atheist or belong to the churches of Nascar and/or Budweiser than active church attendees and I'm right smack dab in the middle of the bible belt.

The following link is an excellent breakdown of the American political landscape by belief groups (including secular) and what percentage of each group is conservative/moderate/liberal:
