An excellent reflection on the role of Christianity and its relation to political loyalties from Joe Carter at the evangelical outpost (no longer online). The key conclusion: “As a fellow traveler of the GOP, I find myself walking side by side with the party toward the same goals. But at other times our paths will diverge and I must follow where my conscience as a Christian conservative leads me. After all, to stand with Christ means that I can’t always stand with the Republican Party.”
Some of my thoughts on “partisan Christianity” are available here.
