Religion and the 2006 elections again

Here’s an oversimplified and deeply misleading article by Alan Wolfe, who cites this piece by David Kuo, who still isn’t quite ready to commence his fast from politics. of the two, I prefer Kuo’s, which doesn’t willfully over- and/or misinterpret the political significance of the Ted Haggard situation, identify evangelicals with two old-guard leaders, make too much of a swing in the Catholic vote (which I expect will keep swinging for quite some time), and assert that evangelicals are powerful "perhaps" in the Supreme Court (I guess Wolfe is thinking of those noteworthy evangelicals Roberts, Scalia, Thomas, and Alito, joined by the liberalizing cousin Kennedy).
