Debunking the "Evangelical Christian" Stereotype

Read this article on a study of the effect of religion on American lifestyles.

Americans who attend church with greater frequency than their neighbors tend to be richer, healthier, and happier, less prone to commit acts of crime, and more likely to get and stay married; possible explanations include educational background and the influence of religion in withstanding worldly pressures.

It's amazing that Hollywood continues to portray white evangelicals as stupid rubes when the exact opposite is more commonly the case. You would think their "capitalist natures" would compel them to produce some movies that more accurately depicts the religious right...even though they despise us...just for the sheer purpose of getting us to give them more of our money.
