Politics: Church goers are less willing to compromise their positions now then 4 years ago and are less willing to forgive politicians who do.

Survey Finds Church-Going Americans Less Tolerant Sat Jan 22, 2005 06:38 PM ET By Michael Conlon CHICAGO (Reuters) - Church-going Americans have grown increasingly intolerant in the past four years of politicians making compromises on such hot issues as abortion and gay rights, according to a survey released on Saturday. At the same time, those polled said they were growing bolder about pushing their beliefs on others -- even at the risk of offending someone.

How dare they have convictions! and Reuters couldn't wait to project their bias in the headline.
