Progressive Christian Weighs In on Influence of Religious Left

Date: July 30, 2010

The Rev. Jennifer Kottler, an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), has no doubt that progressive Christians have had significant influence in the latest "legislative victories."

While there wasn't a lot of success in their efforts to raise such issues as poverty in the 2004 election, Kottler said that they've focused on getting more of the progressive Christian voice out there "so that it's not only the voices on the right that are getting through."
