Barack Obama isn't in the White House yet, but conservative evangelical Christians are worried that he will threaten their freedom to live according to the Bible and profess it as the literal word of God. If evangelicals don't act now, prayer in schools and on the airwaves would give way to pornography and same-sex marriage, some predict. "We've seen what we feel is a clear rise in hostility among our institutions -- political institutions and media institutions," said Craig Parshall of the National Religious Broadcasters, a Virginia group.

EVANGELICAL Christians are responsible for President Bush's presidency, but electing a fellow born-again only made them hungrier. Now these 60 million soul-winners are intent on transforming our democracy into a theocracy under Christ. At least, that's a common conspiracy theory among liberals who, still shell-shocked by the emergence of evangelicals from their cloisters of non-engagement, see them as simple-minded people of unified intent.

IN Hollywood, the white knight in the fight against global warming is Al Gore, whose film, "An Inconvenient Truth," was received with great media hoopla when it arrived in theaters earlier this year. But in much of the rest of America, the man spearheading the battle against catastrophic climate change is someone you'd never see at the Ivy, hobnobbing with the Bush-hating, abortion-allowing, carbon footprint calculating nabobs of Hollywood elitism.

The board of the National Assn. of Evangelicals has voted to move the organization's headquarters from Carol Stream, Ill., to Azusa. "We had 50 board members vote and 75% voted for giving the new president the authority to move ahead with a move," said the Rev. Richard Cizik, Washington director of the organization. President Kevin Mannoia intends to rent a facility in Azusa until a decision can be made about a permanent location in the Los Angeles area, Cizik said.

The Rev. Jerry Falwell, one of the few big-name television evangelists still on the video screen, says "the cause of Christ is better off" because of the recent evangelist scandals. In his first-ever appearance before the National Assn. of Evangelicals, the fundamentalist leader also stated his preference for Rep. Jack Kemp (R-N.Y.) as a running mate for Vice President George Bush, the man whom Falwell has long backed for the Republican presidential nomination.

Evangelical Christianity and ecological conservation ought to be natural allies. Shouldn't people who believe that Earth is God's greatest gift to humankind protect and preserve his creation? The problem is guilt by association, with environmentalists usually thought of as liberals. Many evangelicals wouldn't believe Al Gore if he said it was raining, let alone that the planet faces imminent man-made catastrophe.

In an uncommon display of political unity, leaders of the U.S. evangelical movement joined with moderate and liberal religious groups Monday to urge President Bush to boost development aid to Africa. Evangelical leaders said they hoped their participation would increase pressure on the president to announce a significant increase in U.S. aid before or during next week's summit of the world's wealthiest nations in Gleneagles, Scotland.

The recent slayings at a Sikh temple, allegedly committed by a white supremacist, no doubt have prompted moments of private reflection, perhaps prayer. A coalition of religious leaders now argues that such moments, though admirable, are not enough - that extreme violence demands unified expressions of grief. “This is a time for public mourning and public lament,” said Mark S. Hanson, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America. Hanson, joining other religious leaders in a teleconference with reporters Thursday, said that “we have underestimated” the power and value of public lamentation.
