CHICAGO -- In the past four years churchgoing Americans have grown increasingly intolerant of politicians making compromises on such issues as abortion and gay rights, according to a survey released yesterday.
At the same time, those polled said they were growing bolder about pushing their beliefs on others, even risking offending people.

Machiavelli said something like, "A public man can be corrupt, incompetent, cruel, vindictive, vacillating, self-seeking, weak, and stupid, and yet attain to the highest honours in the state; but if he is ridiculous, he is undone."
More and more, the Left (including the MSM) is approaching self-parody. The more that they are held up to ridicule, the less power they will wield. And if that means that I get a few yuks along the way, that's just a lagniappe.
Sad to say, they may have gotten a few pointers from some folks on FR.
Didn't the memo get out??! Saying "Merry Christmas" automatically qualifies as pushing your views on others.
Just wait until they find us raising our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord.
I didn't realize...
Guess I'll just have to quit voicing my opinion now.
anniegetyourgun,Do as you feel is good for your children and if the rest follow fine.I was spoiled and in a Position to do TV for Children-did as I pleased.
I'm sure the gay activist and feminists are much more fanatical about their beliefs than churchgoers, but I'm sure the Boston Globe won't call them "rigid".
viagra never came to my mind. I was thinking more along the lines of Aaron's rod.
"Churchgoers More Rigid"
This title make me suspect:
a. The journalist who wrote it is gay
b. He is taking a bitch-swipe at middle America
Thanks spod. I thought it odd that it hadn't been posted yet. I see it had....under a completely different title. I suppose I should have realized as it was a wire story pickup....
It's good to know that the sense of humor of the Luddite Patent Counsel isn't going "wobbly"
Rigid ? My wife is going to insist on my going to Church on Wednesdays as well.
I think this is more a MSM waking up to the fact that ALL people of faith are waking up and voting. People of faith have LONG had rules for life.
This is just a propaganda piece to make all oposition to the democrat as only religious and not thought out.
This whole notion translates into whining, screaming children screaming the adults are all unfair for not letting the children run wild.
the same freaks who giggle every time a republican is tricked into saying "log" and "cabin" to describe homosexuals.
If people get offended because of Christ, so be it. I'll wipe the dust from my feet.
