Abstract 

In this article, author Joe Atkins delineates the need for liberal Democrats to incorporate, rather than to ignore, religion. He points out that Republicans have redefined the Democratic demographic as a group of disgruntled members of minorities rather than average Americans. He warns the Democrats that they have forgotten the lasting legacies of many highly regarded and faith-filled civil rights activists. Additionally, he insists that a fear of the Religious Right has caused the Democrats to assertively disassociate themselves from religion in general.
