Fifty most influential Christians in America

The Church Report has published it's list of the fifty most influential Christians in the U.S. I'll leave it to you to decide how accurate you think the list is.

A couple of interesting parts, though.

Pope Benedict XVI only made it in at 44.
Fr. Theodore McCarrick made it in at 47, right behind Sen. Rick Santorum.

In case you are curious,
T.D Jakes was #1.

Interesting...I checked out the list and I think there's less Catholics in it than the fingers on one of my hands! While the source of this list has to be taken into account, it does open up an interesting perception on Catholic Christianity in America. I realized (especially through taking a class at a Methodist Seminary last semester) that we tend to stay within our own "denominational reference point" in many ways. Perhaps this reflects that!

Denominations aside there is a complete disconnect from any Christians who represent views counter to fundamentalism and or so called conservative ideology.

Where is Jim Wallis? Where is Richard Rohr?
How does President Bush get ahead of the pope?
