Tooley on Mega-Churches

The Weekly Standard has posted an article by Mark Tooley on mega-churches. Tooley specifically uses McLean Bible Church in the Washington D.C. area to make some surprising points about mega-churches in general. For example, even though the vast majority of mega-churches are conservative theologically and politically, they don't emphasize political action (for the most part), even though they're regularly charged with it by some (liberals in the media). It's an interesting article that can be found here.

Here's a sample:

"But mega-churches are not a phenomenon exclusive to red America or the deep South. They are most common in large and affluent suburbs and exurbs, appealing to families with frenetic schedules and eclectic spiritual needs that often do not fit with more traditional churches."
