Helpful -- What liberal Christians can do next

I think this is the right idea:

"One of the things a few of us are talking about is a reassessment of how the Democrats deal with an issue like abortion -- could there be a more moderate ground, where even if they retained their pro-choice stance, they talked about uniting pro-choice people together to actually do something about the abortion rate?' said Jim Wallis, editor of the liberal evangelical journal Sojourners.

If the Democratic Party were to 'welcome pro-life Democrats, Catholics and evangelicals and have a serious conversation with them' about ways to reduce teenage pregnancy, facilitate adoptions and improve conditions for low-income women, it would 'work wonders' among centrist evangelicals and Catholics, Wallis said."
