Good article on a megachurch pastor breaking with conservative politics (HT: Will Samson; the article link is a NYT article, use Bugmenot for a login). This is the stuff I love to see, and still a bit too rare I think. I still have a jaded view of megachurches generally, but stuff like this give me hope. I say that losing 1,000 people (20% of his congregation) is a good thing in this case. I’d venture to say that this 20% weren’t his followers anyway. Good on him.
