The Texas Freedom Network was formed to monitor the religious right. It's primary support comes from the religious left. TFN charged a certain organization with a "political agenda, of dismantling the wall of separation of church and state and increasing the role of religion in public life." Well, we can't have that! Even though they don't hesitate to share their religious/ethical perspective "in public life." Jim Wallis said that a lot of "young, articulate spokespeople should be out in churches speaking." Does anyone know how to spell HYPOCRITE?
