Christian Magazine Buys Newspaper Ad

By  | 

A Christian magazine upset about conservative religious support for President Bush is taking its message to Colorado Springs.

Sojourners Magazine says it will buy a full-page ad in The Gazette on Friday to reach people in the city that is home to conservative religious groups like Focus on the Family. The ad will say "God is not a Republican. Or a Democrat."

The magazine paid for the same ad to run in The New York Times during the Republican National Convention. The magazine says it wants Christians to evaluate candidates on a range of issues, including the Iraq war, poverty and the environment.
