Revered Chuck Currie Calls on People of Faith to Thoughtfully Consider Which Candidates Have the Most Moral Policy Stances
July 14, 2012
All of these important public policy issues we face today are moral issues that people of faith have a stake in and should speak to. Good people of faith can disagree on the right ways to bring about change and who to vote for in elections. What we shouldn't disagree on are the goals. Like President Obama, my faith compels me to speak out on these issues and to seek solutions within the public square. All people of faith need to examine the positions taken by the candidates and see if they square with their deepest values and the values of our different faith traditions. As a Christian whose faith informs his politics, I am looking for leaders who will protect God's creation, our very planet, stand up for those Jesus called the "least of these," and work towards being a peacemaker in a world torn apart by war.
