10 Questions for Brian McLaren

On the political side, research defines the Evangelical church as 45% religious right, 45% moderate or mainstream, and 10% progressive. The interesting thing is that the 45% in the middle never, ever speak against the 45% who are the most conservative. So let’s say I'm over in the 10% progressive side. An awful lot of ink and energy gets spent on the danger of somebody like me is, but nobody ever talks about what's the danger of Jerry Falwell, or what’s the danger of James Dobson or the danger of Pat Robertson and the enormous power they have — not only the power with huge amounts of money and power with huge influence on the media, but also power in a sense to brand Christianity.
