Well, the political season is upon us (does it ever leave?) and I've seen a couple of recent posts that bring various thoughts to mind. Sir Paul reminds us in a recent post that we might be "evangelical chumps", taken for a ride by the Republican party. Almost at the same time, the Stand to Reason crew posted an interesting reflection of a recent 60 Minutes story in which a supposedly "politically-conservative Christian and Federal-government employee for the faith-based initiative office...claims that politically-conservative Christians are being manipulated by the Republican party so he suggests a "fast" from politics to be able to evaluate the relationship of Christianity and politics."
Here is the fellow's blog...he's been getting a lot of play from his comments.
What is your gut telling you this voting season? What specific issues will drive you to the polls (or keep you away) this season?
