I’m happy to be able to let you know that the latest issue of our magazine, Religion in the News, is up on the web. There’s a special section, God’s Own Party, dealing with electoral politics, mostly as concerns Republicans. Of particular note is Bill Lindsey’s exploration of the Missionary Baptist roots of Mike Huckabee’s economic populism, Phil Barlow’s reminiscences of Mitt Romney as Mormon Bishop, and Charles Reagan Wilson’s account of the 2007 Barbour-Eaves gubernatorial knockabout in Mississippi. Elsewhere, Andrew Walsh’s cover story on religious environmentalism offers, among other things, a useful caution to those who think that evangelical support for environmental causes is something new under the American sun. And for something entirely different in the religion and politics biz, check out Ingrid Jordt’s analysis of the Burmese monks’ protest.
