Where is the grace, he asks. I agree when all we see are Christians spouting hate and consumed with politics in this earthly kingdom instead of focusing on bringing in more to our heavenly kingdom for citizenship.. only then can morals be changed.. not by forcing laws.
I have been a Republican for 40 years but am dismayed by seeing my fellow Christians get caught up in almost a new 'religion' of worshiping USA and politics which is turning the unsaved against Christ. We have lost our witness credibility.
His reference to an earlier election where a Catholic candidate whose eventual success was demonized as a path straight to Papal control of the United States brought back memories of the rhetoric. As I recall it was evangelical leaders who made many such claims. One wonders what may yet be said if a certain Jewish candidate succeeds in getting the Democratic Party nomination and then prevails in the general election.
Take a look at what Yancey has to say and then consider the behavior of candidates in the present. What will constitute a Christian response and voting in 2016?

I am not an activist and shrink in horror at the Christian's rise in political arenas. But here, in a short, zingy and ever thoughtful essay, Yancy gives a way through the dross and delight that spills out of this difficult area.
Yet again he challenges. Yet again he'll make you shuffle your feet and wring your hands in embarrassment; that is, if you are a fundamental Christian activist. And even if you are not.
