an oft asked question about christians being involved in politics...
South Korea went through a stage where it was as corrupt as it could possibly be. This was in part due to the influence of the United States meddling in its politics in a very similar way to how they meddled in Vietnam and had one devious no hoper of president after another. Times have changed in SK. Corruption will now get a president locked up. Trump should take note. I have met many SK people here in NZ. Not one of them has been a Christian. Some have been nominally buddist but when push came to shove they really did not care about religion at all. Turek of course would gloss over the inconsistencies in his argument. In doing so he is very much like the workers and only succeeds in beguiling the gullible.
I believe that Obama has it right. Even Christians don't agree on doctrine. It is only sensible to have a secular nation that allows each religion to be practiced freely as long as it does no harm. I think that many Christians would not like to live in a nation that is run by literalist Christian doctrine. Diversity comes with making allowances for differences in cultures and beliefs. To force others to believe in a certain religion when there are so many in our world makes no sense and takes away the right of a majority of the population.
In the end there will only be three things that matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you. The Buddha Morality comes not from a book, or a guy up in the sky, but from the idea that how you treat people matters, because how people feel matters. Unknown.
