More religion and politics

Well, here we go again with religion and politics. Governor Granholm made a remark in a TV interview using the Bible to point out the hypocrisy of cutting services to the poor while giving tax cuts to the rich. Governor’s religion remark rankles GOP lawmakers Of course these Republicans who are so quick to point to religion to support their causes were offended and attacked her. Liberals who want to argue on religious grounds to counteract conservative religious/political views will need to become theologically conversant. Conservatives are much more used to using religious rhetoric to support their arguments than are liberals. However, the Bible strongly supports the causes of peace and justice and is strongly opposed to the rich further enriching themselves at the expense of the poor. The culture wars rage on and will continue to increase in this presidential election year.

Solidarity,

Steve
