The new face of the Christian Right.

Good article in the New York Times on the "new breed" of Evangelical Christian leaders that are taking over from the likes of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and James Dobson. They are:
  • more likely to be pastors than media evangelists -- and as such, they are more reluctant to do anything that might annoy large groups of people.
  • more interested in social issues such as climate change, Darfur, and AIDS.
  • but just as conservative as the "old guard" when it comes to abortion and gay rights.
