Facts for the "Democratic Party Reformation"
The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life has just published two important pieces on the role of religion in the 2004 elections. I strongly recommend that people read both, particularly if one wants to pontificate about the need for Democrats to find religion. I realize that facts tend to dampen the vigor of both hand-wringing recrimination and maniacal gloating, but they nonetheless tend to improve the utility of discussions.
