No, Howard, when Jesus returns he won't bring toys

Tommy Denton's favorite Religious Left leader says Democratic National Committee Chairman "Howard Dean doesn't understand religion very much."

"As if mouthy Howard Dean didn't have enough troubles, now comes a left-leaning evangelical, much in demand by the Democratic Party, telling the party boss to shut up about religion," Paul Bedard writes in the Washington Whispers column of U.S. News & World Report.
"'Dean doesn't understand religion very much,' says Jim Wallis, who has advised many Democratic leaders. He meets with Dean this week as part of the chairman's effort to woo the church-going crowd," Mr. Bedard said.
"Now promoting his book 'God's Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It,' Wallis says he'll tell Dean not to fake it on religion. 'The worst thing people could do is be inauthentic,' he says.

Dean shocks the Southern Baptist Convention by "reaching out" with his innovative "hard rock baptism."
