Top Christian leaders often described as "evangelical opposites," Rev. Jim Wallis and Dr. Richard Land, agreed this week that the 2012 elections could be the ugliest in decades.

Wallis, president of the progressive Christian group Sojourners, and Land, president of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, discussed the role of religion in the upcoming elections at a National Press Club event Wednesday in Washington, D.C.
