AP - An evangelical group that wants to reshape the movement's political reputation for being focused on opposing abortion and same-sex marriage is hoping that a series of meetings stressing its roots in women's suffrage and abolition will help it break out of the mold.
Recent surveys have found that younger evangelicals are less tied to the GOP than their parents have been, even while remaining deeply opposed to abortion. They are especially concerned about environmental protection, leading many conservative Christians to reassess their views on the issue. A group of Southern Baptist leaders issued a statement March 10 saying the denomination had been "too timid" on environmental issues and has a biblical duty to stop global warming.
RLCC Comment: That's good news concerning the environment.
One can oppose abortion and homosexuality and be for women's rights and against slavery and for the environment all at the same time.
The RLCC is opposed to coercive laws regardless. All must be voluntary.
