Why is Christianity Today liveblogging the midterm elections?
It's not because no one else is offering commentary on tonight's results. And it's not because we're tired of talking about Ted Haggard. (Okay, it's not only because we're tired talking about him.) But most places talking about today's election will be focusing on politics. We want to find out what today's votes mean for American Christianity. Are evangelicals' priorities changing? Are evangelicals as "dispirited" as some claim? Are many voters today motivated by antagonism toward the Religious Right? Is this the Religious Left's moment? We'll be asking these questions as we look at tonight's results and the media coverage of them. We'll also be checking in with some of the others religious blogs tonight, and rounding up responses from Jim Dobson to Jim Wallis.
