Why Do Evangelicals Oppose the U.S. Government’s Fight Against Obesity?

According to a recent poll by the Pew Research Center, evangelicals are the only religious group to oppose federal attempts to reduce childhood obesity.  Read about it here.

I can understand how such a plan might be offensive to libertarians.  They don’t want the government interfering in their lives and eating habits.

But is opposition to government-sponsored efforts to end obesity an evangelical position?

  1. Could the answer be that Evangelicals are being swayed by libertarian ideology more than they care to admit? Or is it only when the White House is run by “the enemy?”
