I don’t want politics in the church

Virginia is engaged in elections again for city, county, and commonwealth offices.  Though not officially on the ballot, the specter of Obama is present in each and every race.  For that reason alone, if you don’t live in Virginia, you might want to cock an ear in our direction come November 8th  2011.
I am focused on these “smaller” elections as I believe that if the people of Illinois had properly vetted Barack Obama he would still be a two-bit ambulance chaser married to an angry woman in Chicago.  In that vein I invited one of our local candidates to attend our church this morning.  More than one woman told me “I don’t want politics in the church.”  I tell them I don’t either. 
We have a local Democrat politician who attends most Sundays.  He wears his county nametag and drives a car with a “Christian and Democrat” bumper sticker on it.  I notice that he usually arrives late now.  I think it might be because if he beats me to church I park one of my cars next to his as all of mine have “Don’t blame me; I voted Republican” stickers on them.  My wife says it’s childish – but I don’t care.  Interestingly enough – I’m the only one who gets accused of bringing “politics” into the church.  But I digress. 
I don’t’ want “politics” in the church, I want Christians to stop voting like freaking heathens.  How on earth can you leave church on Sunday and then on Tuesday pull the lever for homosexual “rights,” abortion, and an unrelenting attack on the very church and religion that you subscribe to?  The first two are easy to see – Democrats (Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, whatever) are beholden to radical homosexual activists and radical feminists.  A vote for any Democrat is a vote for homosexual marriage and murder in the womb.  That goes without saying.  But an attack on the church? 
Recently a minor official in the Veteran Administration forbid the use of “God” or “Jesus” in burial ceremonies in a VA administered cemetery in Houston, TX.  Think about that.  In the 235 years of our history veterans have been buried in mostly Christian ceremonies.  Can you ever remember this being an issue?  The VA recognizes a variety of religions with headstones.  Has anyone heard any complaints of Buddhists, Hindus, Atheists, Muslims, or Eckankarians (yeah I didn’t know what they are either) being buried with appropriate ceremonies?  No – only Christians. 
But the Anti-American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) leads the assault against Christianity you might say.   True – but think about it – can you imagine some minor bureaucrat in the VA pulling this crap under President George W. Bush?  Hell no!  Having a Democrat dominated administration green lights every heathen, pervert, and half-wit to move the evil agenda forward.  In every race in Virginia this year, just as Obama is on the ballot subliminally, so is God.  The difference is that Obama is represented by the (D) and God is represented by the (R). 
That’s why being a “Christian and Democrat” as my fellow parishioner’s bumper sticker declares is impossible.   You don’t have to talk politics to get to that conclusion; you just have to evaluate your Christian values.

  1. Go get 'em CS. I am amazed at the number of people that think you can be Christian (or just have faith in a divine being) and Democrat. Apparently their idea of God and mine are completely different.

  2. Amigo,

    Well said brother. Rock on!

    Anyone that calls themselves Christian and Democrat is a hypocrit. But then again Democrats are hyprocrits, aren't they?

    As you pointed out there is no middle ground.

  3. Thanks Gents - It was kind of interesting. I figure that about 1/3 of the church are Republicans, 1/3 are Dummycrats, and 1/3 are more upset that the Washington Redskins may not play this year than that their country is burning down.

    It's pretty amazing. That last 1/3 somehow believe there is honor in not dabbling in politics yet can't understand why they are living in Sodom and Gomorrah.
