Share A Little Faith
Above Average Jane would like to perk up the dinner party by talking about a couple of personal topics: She wants to know how faith informs your political views.
With Martin Luther King Jr's Day coming up Jan 16, Jane is asking people - in particular, bloggers - to write about about something she says she doesn't read enough about: faith on the left. I presume the middle and right are welcome, too, but this is Jane's affair, and she's setting the table this way:
It has been said many times by many people that the Democratic Party does not have the same kind of connection to its religious party faithful as the GOP does. It may be that party leaders do not understand the beliefs of constituents and voters. It may be that there is no agreement among Democrats as there is among the evangelical wing of the Republican party. It may be that there is a greater diversity of belief among Republicans than is represented in the media.
Jane's blog carries the subtitle, "The mostly political ramblings of a small-time, big-mouth community activist, somewhere in the greater Philadelphia area:"
She is hoping that bloggers will discuss how their beliefs effect their political inclinations, voting behavior, and support of candidates. She asks: What suggestions would you have for the party of your choice, to reach out to and connect with the party faithful?
To get the ball rolling, she offers two examples of what she's looking for, one philosophical from the Huffington Post, and one more personal from a Philly blogger writing from Center City.
