Evangelicals on Iraq, in Brazil

"I was struck by the way that just before the Iraq war was started, all these evangelical congressmen, however conservative the party they were in and however wild and woolly the charismatic church they were from, were all thoroughly against the war," Freston said. "I didn't hear a single word from anybody in favor of that."

--quote from Paul Freston, an expert on the political influence of evangelicals in Latin America and professor at Calvin College in Michigan,in an article today in the Los Angeles Times on the influence of evangelicals in Brazil.
