Religion and Politics Round Up

It being Sunday and all, I decided to do a round up of the best articles on Religion and Politics.

T L Davis at Tea Party News starts us off with his “The Competition of Church and State”. In this insightful article, he explains why politicians who are Christians, can use their faith in God as a moral compass in governance.

Citizen Tom goes into the differences between Christian thought and actions and the Christian Left’s version of Christian thoughts and actions. Here’s where Tom makes his case…

Some of you may not know by now but I am a follower of Jesus Christ first, and then all of the other labels follow.

I don’t personally identify myself with anything other than a follower of Jesus Christ. I’m definitely not liberal nor am I a libertarian.

There it is…take the time to visit these blogs and read the complete articles.
