The Christian Left does not seem to be so well-organized or publicized as its right-wing counterparts. Opponents state that this is because it is less numerous. Supporters contend that it is actually more numerous but composed predominantly of persons less willing to voice political views in as forceful a manner as the Christian Right, possibly because of the aggressiveness of the Christian Right. Further, supporters contend that the Christian Left has had relatively little success securing widespread corporate, political, and major media patronage compared to the Right.
The religious left is not the religious right. The left isn’t as organized or assertive. For the most part, it seems to have made its peace with the mishmash of morality under the Democratic umbrella, rallying instead around some core Democratic tenets: protection of, and equality for, the disenfranchised and providing greater opportunity and assistance for the poor.
So what are we going to do about this situation? Are we going to be like we’ve usually been in the past and let the right out organize us? It’s our call.
We think it’s time to rise up people with passion. We’re looking for a core group of people. People who will pray for us on a regular basis, and people who will support us financially on a regular, predictable basis, like every month. We have big plans and It's time to put them into motion. Financial support doesn’t have to be in big amounts, at all. It just needs to come from your heart and be consistent. Please contact us at TCL@TheChristianLeft.org if you would like to be one of these people. Please make the subject, “Core Group.”
If we want to see change, we need to be the change.
