Newest 'Values Voters' Adversary to America: The Emergent Church

(RNS) Christian conservatives who think Satan is using communism and Islam to bring down America can add a new “adversary” to the list: the Emergent Church movement.

A portion of the upcoming Values Voter Summit in Washington will stray from its usual focus on politics and consider the Emergent Church as one of three “channels the adversary is using to bring America down.” Art Ally, president of The Timothy Plan, a Florida-based mutual fund company devoted to “biblically responsible investing,” will lead the breakout session.

The 'emergent' church is the end of Christianity that I used to be involved with. Interesting to see right wing Christians seeing them as a threat - I never thought they were having much impact, being small and fairly disorganized almost by definition.

We just had a speaker at Pagan Pride, a Christian from one of these kinds of churches who has had a lot of interaction with Pagans, says he's learnt a lot from them, and is now working in inter-faith contexts with Pagan groups. Not something you'd hear from a lot of church contexts.

It's not surprising given that conservative Christianity (at least the Protestant variety) is almost anti-progressive. They see almost all "progressive" ideas as coming from Satan. Even if they are direct from the mouth of Jesus in the New Testament.
