Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Response to DavidL (Original post)

8. During the early years of DU, one poster (I forget his name) was the son of

a retired Assemblies of God minister. He said that his father had noticed pretty blatant Republican infiltration of that denomination before his retirement, confusing Jesus' message with the Republican party platform.

(Traditionally, fundamentalists and Pentecostals--which is what the Assemblies of God are--were non-political, believing that it wasn't a good thing to get too involved in "the world." But that changed around the time of the Reagan administration.)
