Faith and the Presidential Campaign (Townhall.com) February 1, 2008

The Republican field of presidential candidates and the discussion of  religion remind us of the variety of ways Christians might approach political leadership.

* Mitt Romney, for example, is deeply religious, but his faith informs his character, values and approach to leadership more than it does his views on particular issues.
* Rudy Giuliani does not appear to be a regular church-goer and his social views are at odds with conservative Christians, yet, like Ronald Reagan perhaps, his personal strength and convictions are attractive to many Christians.
* Mike Huckabee, himself a minister, says his religion defines him, both in terms of character and issues.  But Americans don’t like their leaders to be too religious and some may see him that way.
There is no one “Christian” candidate for president, but let’s hope all people of faith use their faith and their values when they enter the primary voting booths early in the new year.
