17. I agree to some extent with your third paragraph.

I think the liberal/progressive religious leaders do hold some responsibility for countering the religious right. While many have, you don't hear much about it. There are a number of reasons for that. It's not very sexy so get very little press. The voice of the religious right was very loud and very well organized by the neocons, while the left has not had that kind of organization or support. Liberals/progressives in general are somewhat ambivalent about religion and some are overtly hostile towards believers, as can often be seen on DU (gee, right here in this thread, as a matter of fact). With limited support from within your own political community, it is difficult to find a voice.
