Among the interesting bits in the new Pew poll is the finding that conservatives fear there’s too much religion in politics. In 2004, 30% said churches should stay out of politics. Now, 50% do. Among white evangelicals, the percentage jumped from 28% up to 39%
Why? The cynical interpretation might be that conservatives don’t like Obama playing the faith card. Suddenly, when a Democrat is using religion as a prop, it’s unseemly.
In other words, while moderates and liberals fear that church involvement in politics hurts politics, some religious conservatives have increasingly come to feel it hurts Christ.
