Wayward Christian Soldiers

New York Times has an op-ed by an avowed evangelical Christian decrying the conservative movement's unthinking loyalty to Bush's war: "What will it take for evangelicals in the United States to recognize our mistaken loyalty? We have increasingly isolated ourselves from the shared faith of the global Church, and there is no denying that our Faustian bargain for access and power has undermined the credibility of our moral and evangelistic witness in the world. The Hebrew prophets might call us to repentance, but repentance is a tough demand for a people utterly convinced of their righteousness."
