Time's 25 Most Influential Evangelicals in America

Here you go…a nice list of folks to monitor for all kinds of hypocrisy and impropriety over the next few years. House Blenders, start Googling these folks so we can add them to the Conservative Values Monitor. Feel free in the comments to add interesting tidbits on our new friends below. I’ve not heard of many of them, but I don’t doubt they’re power brokers — just outside of the spotlight, unlike our favorite media whores. I wonder if Ralph Reed, Pat Robertson, Paul Weyrich and Rev. Tinkywinky feel left out? (Time via AmericaBlog):
