Pagans at the DNC

I love it when Mike Hein of the Christian Civic League sends out email blasts that are intended to incite indignation and disgust -- often, they alert me to something interesting and Maine-related that I might have otherwise missed. Take the email he sent out on Sunday, in which he reprints excerpts from Blue Pagans at the DNC, a blog penned primarily by Democratic Mainer Rita Moran, about pagan involvement at the Democratic National Convention in Denver. I think the excerpts are supposed to inspire outrage by themselves; Hein doesn't indulge in his typical editorializing (other than a few emphases added -- which, of course, he doesn't point out for the reader).

Moran's blog (on which her Kennebec County Democratic Committee co-chair Ed Lachowicz is also posting) contains thoughtful observations about the intersection of religion and the Demcratic Party, from a perspective that's not frequently voiced. For more observations and anecdotes from Denver, check out this week's Phoenix, where we'll have interviews with Lachowicz, state rep Jon Hinck, Portland's NAACP president Rachel Talbot Ross, and Danny Muller of Peace Action Maine
