I think looking towards left christian groups is very different than looking to "organized religion." And, I dont think anyone has suggested that we rely on organized mainstream religious groups, any more than anyone has suggested we look to Bill Clinton. Most of the left christian folks are fighting against organized mainstream religious groups. Your reaction seemed like a pretty thoughtless knee-kerk reaction to me. Perhaps next you'll equate Republicans with Libertarians, because of their shared beliefs regarding social spending, and ask why the republicans are not more pro-choice and stronger defenders of the first amendment.
