Short story: when driving through Wisconsin, we passed a huge sign that simply said, "God Bless America". Progressive, liberal me winced at the percieved conservatism, evangelism, and other ickiness I attribute to that sort of sentiment. However, there's nothing overtly Republican, Tea-Party, or conservative about that phrase -- so where are the people using it in any other way? The wonderfully liberal side of Jesus gets trotted out by modern progressives ironically
, but I don't see any genuine deeply-christian progressives promoting those sentiments unironically
. A Google for the phrase "God Bless Obama" finds some things along those lines, but it's pretty sparse. Does anyone know a good source for non-conservative, progressive, liberal Christian
politics? Such an animal may not exist, but I still hold out some hope...
