The Religion that Dare Not Speak its Name

Rev. Timothy Ahrens is fed up with the religious right and, according to Andrea Hopkins of Reuters, he's not going to take it anymore.

Ahrens is calling on moderate church leaders to counter the conservative presence in American politics -- and convince mainstream voters that Christians care about more than banning gay marriage and abortion and restoring school prayer, reports Hopkins.

"People are fed up with having religion represented in such a skewed way," says Ahrens, senior minister at The First Congregational Church in downtown Columbus.

"At our opening meeting, pastor after pastor said they have members ... who won't even tell people they are Christian any more, because Christian is such a dirty word," Ahrens said.
