WHAT'S RIGHT IS RIGHT, DARN IT!
Timothy Noah writes in Slate
that the Christian Right now wants to be called "evangelical Christians." Apparently being called "right wing" is getting as bad as being called a "liberal."
Thing is though, they're not the same thing. 76% of evangelicals voted for Bush. Which means almost a quarter of them voted for Kerry. If you want to talk about the pro-Bush anti-Kerry evangelicals, call them what they are: right wing Christians.
After all, Christ himself was something of a leftie. He was not confident of the spirituality of rich folks. He hung around with poor folks and a reformed prostitute. There is no natural connection between Christianity and the right.
Names frame the argument. Let's keep calling the right the right. It's only right.
