Talking points

The language of Scripture calls people to turn away from selfish desire
and focus instead on serving God and their neighbors. That’s why the
Christian faith has been a driving force in the movements for
abolition, workers’ rights, women’s rights, and civil rights. And it’s
why millions of Americans root their identity as Democrats in their
faith as Christians.


Indeed, the Bible has thousands of verses promoting the values that
Democrats hold dear — protecting the needy, embracing diversity, caring
for God's creation, working to resolve conflicts peacefully, and
numerous others. Every day, members of our party seek to answer
President John F. Kennedy’s call “to go forth and lead the land we
love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth,
God's work must truly be our own.”

Please explore the scriptural topics we've provided and spread the word in your congregations, workplaces, and communities.
