CHRIST: He didn't endorse any party

| April 18, 2010 10:00 PM

A woman named Sarah Winter in a letter published in the Press on March 31, who apparently had a “Vote Obama” sticker on her car, complained that when she came out from church after a service she had a note on her windshield asking how she could vote for President Obama and still attend church. 

Whoever left the note on her car was both un-American and un-Christian. I’ve read the Bible pretty thoroughly and it doesn’t say anything about Jesus supporting any political party. In fact I think He would at the very least be saddened about the angry political atmosphere in this country now.             

There are many Christians including Ms. Winter and myself who have no problem being a Christian and voting for Democrats. Anybody who thinks Christianity is the province of any political party or particular political philosophy is misguided. If what happened to Ms. Winter happened in the church I attend I would ask the pastor to publicly address the issue and if he/she refused I would hope the church would find another pastor or I would find another church.
