Of God and politics

[Media Source*]

The majority of Americans believe in God, but not all Christian conservative believers speak with one voice, a common misconception outside the U.S., says author Jim Wallis.

Wallis is the author of God's Politics How the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesn't Get It. "We have a rule for polite company not to discuss religion and politics are a dinner party, maybe because there are about ultimate issues, significant issues and the deepest questions.

Great video (although the narrator has a weird voice). Click the Source* to see the video. More of the transcript below.

Partial Transcript:
President George Bush is not one to shy away from questions of faith, often invoking god in public speeches. "I think it's an issue that people want to find a way to talk about it," says Wallis.

"Lincoln did it right, He said don't talk about God's blessings, or we being in God's favor or God being on our side and that leads to triumphalism and bad foreign policy but worry and pray that we are on God's side."

The problem probably comes over what each side believes is the main issue with God. Republicans emphasize taking care of little children, morals and principles while Democrats focus on taking care of the poor (although neglecting babies aka fetus's is against Psalms though as God considers the "fruit of the womb" his reward). Their needs to be healing on both sides of the issue, but I suspect Christians on the Right are more organized and united than Christians on the left (as the left seems to be holding pretty extreme views now-a-days). Selah!
