A reader wrote to me:

“It is my hope that Christians can discern the social aims of the Gospel from the political agenda of the Republican party and the religious right. Please be aware that I am an independent voter who tries to vote for the candidate rather than party
platform. I also support many of the issues promoted by the religious right such as family values, pro-life, etc. However, I may disagree with their priorities relative to other social issues such as AIDS, poverty, genocide, etc. Additionally, I also believe that love, not hate, or the exercise of earthly power, ultimately wins hearts and minds, and sometimes souls.”

He’s right. And he isn’t alone. He is part of a movement of people who love Jesus and want to practice compassion and who are fighting to reclaim Jesus’ name from the political dump on which it has been tossed.
