Liberalism is the political expression of "love thy neighbor;" Conservatism seeks to explain why you're not my neighbor.

The current state of the Church mirrors the Laodicean Church described in Revelation 3:14-22 with its emphasis on and worship of money. The "Jesus" of contemporary Christianity is simply Mammon (god of Money) dressed up in finery and wearing a Halloween mask.
Like Jesus Himself, those of us who endeavor to be authentic Christians (meaning "like Christ") are standing outside the Church and knocking.

Thus saith the Lord; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes; http://bible.us/Amos2.6.KJV
If God did not spare Israel, how can America expect to escape.

Jerry Falwell once preached that Christians should stay out of politics, not long after he changed his mind when President Carter threatened to remove tax exemption for White's Only Christian Schools. After awhile, Falwell realized there was more contributions to be had fighting abortion.
I tend to agree. Not that Christians shouldn't care about politics and vote their conscience, but the Right went too far and wedded Christ to harlots, the Republican Party (it would have been just as bad had the Left done the same thing to the Democratic Party).
By calling, I am what various denominations would call an intercessor, a Christian Mystic, a Habakkuk, if you will. One who's greatest ambition is to sit alone in my metaphoric watchtower with one eye on the news and the other focused on Heaven to "see what He will say," but became distressed that God's Name was being blasphemed by associating it with the Republican Party so I got off my knees and added my voice to those risen in protest in the wilderness.

What do our opponents mean when they apply to us the label “Liberal?” If by “Liberal” they mean, as they want people to believe, someone who is soft in his policies abroad, who is against local government, and who is unconcerned with the taxpayer’s dollar, then the record of this party and its members demonstrate that we are not that kind of “Liberal.” But if by a “Liberal” they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people —their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties —someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a “Liberal,” then I’m proud to say I’m a “Liberal.” -JFK
