Evangelical Christian Political Activism

Jarvis has a post with a couple of comments in addition to a quote of most of this piece written by an evangelical Christian. It's refreshing to hear someone from that background acknowledge that the unrestrained use of influence in current government could result in an extreme backlash in the future. My favorite quote: "The Gospel is not reducible to the institution of laws amenable to Christian morality." I.e., putting Christian morality (ignoring the obvious question of which denomination's morality) into law does not deliver society to salvation. It is better to write the morals into hearts than into laws.
