Sacrilege

Even the opening prayer was politically charged. “O God, we are in a battle that is raging for the soul of this nation,” the preacher said. “You, O God, have raised up Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin for such a time as this.” The preacher went on: “Help them, O God, to strengthen our economy, to keep our taxes and spending low . . . and grant them the privilege of being elected the next president and vice president.” (Source: Dana Milbank)

No other word for it.  This should be deeply distressing to anyone who thinks the Church is neither an arm of the state nor of the ruling party.

One response to “Sacrilege

  1. Good evening. You have hit on something here that is indeed disturbing; that being the continual mixing of politics into that which is everlasting. It’s something that the Lord delivered me from a few years back. When we have our hearts completely upon Jesus and our affections on things above, the baser things simply cannot measure up.

    Have a blessed evening in Jesus.
