Andrew Sullivan warns of Christianists

Andrew Sullivan has an essay on the dangers of Christianists. He explains with this money quote:

"I dissent from the political pollution of sincere, personal faith. I dissent most strongly from the attempt to argue that one party represents God and that the other doesn't. I dissent from having my faith co-opted and wielded by people whose politics I do not share and whose intolerance I abhor. The word Christian belongs to no political party. It's time the quiet majority of believers took it back."

Andrew and I rarely agree (although I love reading his blog), but on this we stand shoulder to shoulder.
