A new survey of evangelical Christians. Some interesting points:
Over 52 percent still felt Bush was a better Christian than former Democratic President Bill Clinton, while 13 percent felt the reverse was true. About a third rated them evenly.52% thought Bush was a bitter Christian than Clinton. Okay, but about a third, 33% or so, thought they were even, and 13% thought Clinton was a better Christian than Bush. Combined, that means 46% of evangelicals thought Clinton was as good a Christian, or better, than Bush. That's interesting.
Oh yeah, and they can't stand Jerry Falwell, who keeps claiming he's one of their leaders.
Among Christian leaders, evangelist Billy Graham -- a household name in America who has long distanced himself from overt political activity -- was viewed favorably by 86 percent of the evangelicals polled by Beliefnet.
The Rev. Jerry Falwell, a prominent conservative Christian, was viewed in a favorable light by only 17 percent.
