Good Jesus freaks

You know how I go off on the Christo-Fascist, Right-wing, bible-thumping, Jesus freaks. Well, there are some good ones out there. Via Melanie at Just a Bump in the Beltway:

Church Folks for a Better America

We are Christians, from different communions.
And citizens who span the political spectrum.

We grieve that our nation is not standing for “liberty and justice for all,” nor treating Iraqis as we would be treated. We believe that accountability begins at home, that wise leaders know their mistakes, and that honest leaders admit them. Fear and resentment will never guide us to a just and lasting peace. Any nation that hopes to be “under God” must live for a positive vision of world community, not a blind response to terrorism that tragically makes others see us as if we were terrorists ourselves.

If you're the God-fearing sort and want to see what level-headed Christians are all about, go see 'em.
