Are Evangelicals Dangerous?

My column at CNN.com, “Are Evangelicals Dangerous?,” was posted there on Sunday’s front page. By mid-Monday, there were 75 pages of comments at the site. That tells us something about the volatility of the question.

You can count on more debates along these lines in the media as the 2012 presidential election looms larger on the nation’s agenda. My conclusion:

Above all, evangelicals are those who most concerned about telling others about Jesus. Most of America’s evangelical Christians are busy raising their children, working to support their families and investing energy in their local churches.

But over recent decades, evangelical Christians have learned that the gospel has implications for every dimension of life, including our political responsibility.

We’re dangerous only to those who want more secular voices to have a virtual monopoly in public life.
