Mixing Religion And Politics

“Mixing religion and politics is like mixing ice cream and manure. It doesn’t do much to the manure but it sure does ruin the ice cream”


I could cite all kinds of places in the Christian Bible warning about mixing Ceasar & God but that is just not what I do. Instead, I am giving you the quote above. I don’t know for sure who originally wrote it but I remember it best from my friends at RedLetterChristians.org

When you mix manure with politics the one thing that is destroyed is empathy and scope. One example of this is the Pro-Life stand.

I have been proudly proclaiming to be pro-life as defined by Father Martin for more years than I can remember. Pro-life mean ALL lives, not pro some lives. It is sad to see so many people who call themselves Christians and cling to a very narrow view of this topic. Being your brother’s keeper and being pro-life in all regards melds quite nicely. How can so many believe one and not all the others is beyond me.
