John Dickson on Mixing Religion and Politics

My good friend John Dickson has a great piece over at CPX on Mixing Religion and Politics. It is quite pertinent as Australia is one week away from a federal election and the incumbent Australian Labour Party faces political defeat and being replaced with a coalition of the Liberal/National Parties. Dickson states his purpose:

I write with a dual audience in mind. I want to encourage Christians to be more thoughtful about their political opinions and I hope to demonstrate for the religious ‘spectator’ that, despite some rather potent counter-examples in North America, the ‘Christian vote’ is a vote for the good of the nation not an attempt to impose religious law on a secular society.

It is a good piece about guiding Christians about things that should or should not motivate them in their voting.
