My friend and conversation partner, Tim Suttle, has written another excellent piece for Huffington Post. He is describing the political place I find myself in - the 19% of Evangelicals, who've had it with the current political parties and desire to find new ways to be faithful Christians in the midst of the political process.
Here is a quote from Tim's article, "We need to embrace the reality that cultivating Christian identity over and against any party affiliation is the essential Christian political move. Though it may be seen as a betrayal by those who have confused conservatism for Christianity, the most distinctively Christian political act is to reject the state's claim to ultimate power, and to reserve that place for God alone. Full participation in either party means giving our proxy to leaders who would disingenuously use religion as a political tactic without batting an eye, and who would intentionally lie and mislead in order to win our votes. Until something changes, neither party deserves that kind of respect."
