Roaming, I just read your "comming out" article(I know its a bit late sorry.) I noticed in it you said that your political beliefs don't come from your religion. I am wondering how this is possible. The foundational principles that are found in the Gospel are so key to worldview and outlook that, as myself bing a Christian, would find it ultimately impossible to separate that from politics at the very least on a fundamental level. While I believe that you can't argue your political veiw from a scriptural standpoint, the foundational beliefs and principles are nonetheless essential to my political views, is this similar for you, or do you have a completely different take?
While my political beliefs are now supported by my faith, I had my political beliefs in place years before I became a Christian.
The pope has done a pretty good job at separating politics and christianity. You know, with the pope being a communist and all.
If you actually read what I said then you will notice that I infact said that you can't argue your political views by quoting scriptures. I do not believe, however that it is possible to separate your core worldview as a Christian from your politics.
How about arguying politics with basic facts and logic?
