    The Boston Globe has started a three-part series on key evangelical leaders who are also a force to be reckoned with in politics. The first article features James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family. This is a paid subscription site, but if you go to the Globe's general website listed below and do a search for Brian MacQuarrie, you should be able to pull the article up and read it. It is a long article (5 pages). With any luck at all, Kathianne may be able to provide a url for you to read these articles.

    Thanks, Kathianne. Maybe you can do the same for the other two articles in the series. Those three guys really have a different approach to connecting religion with politics.

    Does anyone who's graduated from kindergarten need to actually read a Boston Globe article about white Christian leaders? That's like bothering to read what Der Sturmer has to say about a prominent rabbi. You can kinda guess...

    Although the series was a product of the Boston Globe, the articles were a fair representation of all three men and their ministries.

    Not everything is bad about the Globe. After all, Jeff Jacoby is on their staff, and he writes some of the best conservative articles in the business. Thanks to the Globe, I am learning a lot about Governor Romney and his stand on current issues as he makes a campaign tour through the south. I haven't seen that coverage in any other newspaper.
