God & Politics

January 25, 2008

Tonight the PBS NOW program focused on God and Politics in 2008. Surprisingly, this piece was even-handed, demonstrating both the socially progressive and politically charged expressions of faith in Evangelicalism. Pastors from across Kansas were interviewed, revealing disturbing to encouraging stances on the role of faith and politics. An interesting quote (as best as I can recall):

“More often than not, when you mix religion and politics, you get politics. As a preacher I am called to preach the gospel, that’s good news. Its about deliverance. Politics can’t deliver; it never will.”

    That was extremely interesting. It’s nice to see a public media forum discussing evangelicals across the spectrum.

    Yes, I was pleased by the balanced approach.
