Liberal Clergy promote liberal political agenda
With a week left to register to vote in the next election, metro Detroit's religious leaders urged their congregations Sunday to become politically involved, and asked them to spread the message to their neighbors.

At a rally on the University of Detroit Mercy campus in Detroit, the group known as MOSES -- which stands for Metropolitan Organizing Strategy Enabling Strength -- invited Michigan's political and community leaders to learn about the six main issues it wants the government to address.

"We expect a commitment... to work with us in each of these areas," said the Rev. Kevin Turman, president of MOSES and pastor of the Second Baptist Church of Detroit. "The agenda we create, we do out of a position of faith. These are the issues that are affecting your community."

This year's rally focused on furthering civil rights, decreasing crime, improving public transportation and roads, creating ...

This means, the church has a full-time goal of spreading the gospel. The pastors have a full-time goal of taking care of the church. We regular church goers have some time to play around with politics. However, you will note that the richest and most modern nations are the least religious. England and the Scandinavian countries being some very good examples. Does this mean as Christians we are to make life so miserable that people turned to God? No. God will have his Elect, no matter what financial position is. For a Christian, politics should be nothing more than a hobby. I have serious doubts about the Christianity of professional politicians who say they are Christian.

I would suppose the above more less represents the view of my church, however, for the official view you might want to look at the following PDF file:

Does that mean you don't think that christians should be politically active? Please explain what you mean.

I think we can effectively spread the Gospel by being wise in making decisions that affect people positively. This includea personal and political decisions.

Strange, Christ never had a political agenda nor did the apostles. Mixing politics and Christianity is destructive to Christianity. The church only task is to spread the Gospel.

A fundamentalist pastor can be either liberal or conservative politically, but he can be a good pastor being political.

"civil rights, decreasing crime, improving public transportation and roads, creating universal health care and finding better land uses" ... that sounds good, even if it is considered 'liberal'
