Interview with Courtney Martin

Courtney Martin explored the New Life Church's youth outreach ministry for AlterNet here. But you've labored with words for far too long. It's time to sit back, grab a lemonade and watch TV. In that spirit, AlterNet presents our first author interview for those who want to meet the writers and get a more intimate perspective. We welcome your feedback...

From her Brooklyn apartment, Martin shared some of her experiences with the Colorado Springs Evangelical Church -- including the Godliness of Wal-Mart -- as well as thoughts on religion, '60s nostalgia and the future of the Religious Right.
