The response in the discussion period and in personal conversations afterwards was almost like a "camp meeting" with Democratic officials eager to say "I'm a Presbyterian," "I'm a Baptist," "I'm a Catholic," "I'm a Jew," "I'm a Unitarian." Everybody was "testifying," as we say. The level of comfort about being "religious" for these Democrats was very new according to almost everyone there.

I was trying to make a distinction between those, like you, who are doing a better job regarding religion, and those who are not.----------Wallis

OK, that isn't cool.  A "better job" regarding religion? 

I must say,  I think that's chilling.   Wallis is no better than the rest of them, if this is the tripe he comes up with.   Pray in your closet, let not  your left hand know what your right hand is doing.
 
 Religion isn't to be how a person is judged here  in our country.  "Friendly" or "not so friendly" to religion, that does not matter.

Wallis has something. Reread his article again. Take what he is saying at face value, and leave your preconceptions at home.

Then if need be , blast him again.
