    The Roman Catholics and Anglicans form the left flank of Christianity in most of Latin America, Africa and South Korea.  Evangelicals and Pentecostals are on the rise, and they tend to be of the fire-and-brimstone variety, or at least the Rios Montt variety (diddling with Reagan's CIA).  You may remember the witch hunter at Sarah Palin's church.  

    The Evangelicals and Protestants may even be the Religious Center in parts of Africa, with Saudi-influenced Islam on the right.  Pagan practices still extant vary greatly, and not all of them are conducive to the full development of every human being.

    So American voices that pull in a liberal direction are probably drowned out by voices from the global South that demand that "every jot and tittle of the law be fulfilled".  

    "Politics should be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage." -- Lucille Ball
