Talking To Pastor Dan

Faithfully Liberal interviews Pastor Dan about the intersection of Democratic politics and religion, the issues he'd like to see politicians address more and mental health parity. Really, I'd like to hear a version of the following exchange every time Democrats are quizzed about religion:

Q: What additional work do you believe Democrats need to do to make further inroads to moderate people of faith?

A: I don’t think they need to do anything. They need to celebrate the people they have, not sell their birthright for a mess of pottage. Progressive political ideas are mainstream and very popular. If Democrats want to attract people, that’s what they should sell, not some phony stance on being “friendly to people of faith.”

Anyway, it's an interesting interview. You'd probably enjoy it if you clicked on over to read the whole thing. Even if you're some kind of godless pinko.
