Evangelicals for Social Action, posted 3/11/05

Something is happening in the world of evangelicalism. For two days running the New York Times has had significant stories about a move to expand the evangelical agenda beyond abortion and same-sex unions. Who would have thought that, just a few years ago, the newspaper of record would have carried this news?

For three days, these two pieces have been among the Times' 10 most emailed articles.

Even so, this hopeful move has already been attacked by Focus on the Family, which for all its genuine wisdom about child-raising has become more and more ferocious and mean-spirited about the larger agenda.
