Evangelical Update

A resource for lefties who want to understand conservative Christians.

Well, I managed to get myself to work today, and get on the computer so I wouldn’t let my friends down here at the Update. Today I thought we could have a nice little chat about war. Specifically, the one we are currently waging in Iraq. I don’t know if the battle lines of this issue fall so clearly between Christians and non-Christians, but there is undoubtedly a strong religious contingency of supports for this war. I’m curious – how many of you were in favor of going to war in Iraq? Do you believe the world is a safer place since invading Iraq? Do you feel the United States has a duty to spread democracy to oppressed nations? Those of you who favored the war, do you still believe we did the right thing?
