Conservatives grow wary of mixing church, politics

From the Associated Press a report on the way conservative Christian thinking is shifting. Looks like the Moral Majority days are over.

"Fifty percent of conservatives think churches and other places of worship should stay out of social and political matters, up from 30 percent four years ago, according to a survey released Thursday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life and the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.

That significant shift in conservative thought has brought the country to a tipping point on the question: a slim majority of Americans - 52 percent - now think churches should keep out of politics."
