In an article in the latest Out of Ur newsletter, Skye Jethani mentions, Michael Lindsay, author of Faith in the Halls of Power, who refers to many current Christians as "Cosmopolitan Evangelicals."
- reject signifiers of "populist" Christianity, such as the Left Behind books and Thomas Kinkade paintings.
- are less involved in local churches, but highly involved with parachurch organizations.
- may not theologically agree with same-sex civil unions, but they don't see them as an assault on the culture.
- remain definitively pro-life.
- are more engaged with matters of local and global justice. AIDS, poverty, and human rights have been added to "traditional family values" in their set of concerns.
- recognize the legitimacy of environmental matters and view them through the theological lense of "creation stewardship."
