Why Should Religion Matter When We Vote?
Jay Lowder says faith-based beliefs should play a key role in elections
Should we consider a candidate’s religion when we vote? For most of us, we immediately say no because it is contrary to the idea of separation of church and state but the more closely this is examined we see that faith influences action, and there is no reason to pretend otherwise when we go to the polls. As all candidates, in both parties claim Christianity as their faith it is important to look at how this will shape their decisions.
This begs the question: who should American’s vote for? Evangelist Jay Lowder says we should support those who reflect in prayer, lead with integrity, and whose faith guides them to actions we, as individuals, support.
