When The New York Times, The Washington Post, and CNN all show interest in what Jesus would think on an issue, it's likely that the liberal political agenda is involved.
That was the case late last month, when the "What Would Jesus Drive?" campaign fired on all cylinders. The Evangelical Environmental Network (EEN) and other religious groups got a lot of mileage out of arguing that it's immoral to drive big, fuel-inefficient vehicles. "We want to start a discussion in the evangelical community on transportation as a moral issue," the EEN's Rev. Jim Ball told ABC.
