Though he ministers to Capitol politicians, who tend to vet even the least controversial ideas through polling and focus groups, pastor Ralph Drollinger lets his thoughts loose with a minimum of hedging.

Like a few weeks ago, when he wrote in a Bible lesson that women lawmakers with young children at home are sinners.

"It is one thing for a mother to work out of her home while her children are in school," wrote Drollinger, president of a national Christian evangelical group known as Capitol Ministries and a former UCLA basketball player. "It is quite another matter to have children in the home and live away in Sacramento for four days a week. Whereas the former could be in keeping with the spirit of Proverbs 31, the latter is sinful."
