God & Politics

http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Vatican-Gay-Marriage/2012/11/10/id/463616?s=al&promo_code=10A99-1

The Vatican has re-affirmed it's belief that marriage is between one man and one woman.  For decades now I have been warning that Christians, particularly Catholic Christians that moral issues need to take a broader role in society.  The liberals have taken over the public form and left conservative Christians out of the conversation.

As a result, Christians can't speak in public about Jesus Christ, about the right to life for the unborn and about tradition marriage because those are religious issues and therefore cannot be spoken about in a public forum.  Then the liberals complain when we speak of these issues in church because these are suddenly political issues and have no place in church, effectively silencing traditional Christians.

Christians need to vote their values.  If you believe the Bible, then St. John recognized Christ from the womb.  That certainly is an excellent argument against abortion.  If you believe the Bible it's speaks often about marriage between a man and a woman and about homosexual acts being sinful.  Of course the Bible also speaks of Jesus Christ being the Son of God and one worthy of emulation.  In a democratic society it is our obligation to consider the will of God and vote accordingly, too many in the USA failed to do that in our recent election; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
