I think sometimes about how involved Christians should be in politics. I used to think there should be some sort of Christian political party. Independent of Republican or Democrat. Some people (e.g. James Dobson) essentially want to make one of the parties the Christian party.

I read a really good article though, I think from Christianity Today. They were just saying how this is a really bad idea. Because politics is all about compromise. To get anything done in politics, you have to compromise. And that’s totally against Christianity, and faith in general. If you insist on never compromising, you’ll be politically powerless. But if you do compromise, it’s a compromise against the faith, which should never be compromised.

So I don’t know how much you can mix faith into politics. It’s just complicated.
