Religion has been cited as a big factor in the recent presidential election. The exit polls found that 22 percent of voters cited "moral values" as the key to their vote. Of course, we welcome the "moral values" discussion in politics, but the question some Christians are raising is which values and whose values.
Sojourners: Christians for Justice and Peace has been receiving daily opportunities to shape the national debate and to make sure that social and economic justice is named as a "moral and religious value," and that war and peace are "life" issues too. The Reverend Jim Wallis is scheduled to speak about "moral values" this coming Sunday on "Meet the Press."
Only 51% of Americans have moral values?
- Rev. James Kennedy of Florida.
Are you tired of listening to politicians and media tell you what is moral and what is not? Is wanting health care for all immoral? Is believing in the value of community and helping others immoral?
