US election – they DO do God

by quaesitor

This is an interesting website – because the Americans DO do God when they vote. Not that we get to cast anything in this election, despite the fact that it affects us all…

    at least the environment is on the agenda…that is a step in the right direction for the religious right at least!

    OK – just realised this isn’t a religious right website. But still good to have it recognised that the environment is a religious issue for Christians.

    Still interesting to see what isn’t there… it seems to me that the issues may well be set by the hot-topics mostly of the religious right in the US even thought his is not the typical right wing site. I mean I like the concept a lot, but it would be interesting wouldn’t it if they worked through scripture and added other issues that the BIBLE – not the media or politicians – talks about e.g. poverty/ economic inequality; immigration (caring for the alien); families and children/ broken families/ children in care; what does it mean to be a peacemaker in the realm of international relations, etc.
    We could then perhaps also judge the candidates sins of omission as well as commission, and congratulate/ encourage them when they speak up about unpopular issues that are nonetheless important. Just a random (perhaps overly radical) thought….
