Thou Shalt Not Be Ridiculous

The Ten Commandments of Talking (or blogging) Politics

One of the more excellent things I’ve read this election year.  The first commandment is:

1. Do not worship political theories or parties.(You shall have no other gods before me.)  Do not worship ideas or theories instead of God. Not your stance on global warming or Capitalism or deregulation or education or abortion or gay marriage or health care or international trade or war. Do not put your hopes in a political stance or party line or economic theory. Those things are important, but they should not distract us from our unity in Christ Jesus.

As Christians, we have definitely got to get a grip on how we deal with political issues.
