Should people of the Christian faith be involved in the politics of America? Or, should they stick to church work? And, what about the “separation of church and state”?But, that is not what the Constitution or the 1st Amendment says. In fact, the 1st Amendment was designed to keep the government out of mandating what churches could or couldn’t do; not keep people of faith out of government leadership or involvement.
“Why shouldn’t the church be there?” said Graham. “Who says we can’t speak up? Who says our voice can’t be heard? Get involved.”
A radical progressive political agenda and left-wing educational ideology implemented over the past seven decades has led to this notion that faith has no place in government.
But, the absolute historical truth is that faith, specifically the Christian faith, has been at the heart of American culture from its very beginnings. To object to Christian involvement in government is to deny our history and heritage. Rev. Graham is exactly right. Christians have just as much right to participate in government and politics as any other citizen of America. To think differently is to be an anti-religious bigot!
