The Evangelical Vote: Can Christians engage with politics without sinking into shibboleth debates

Andy Shudall at The Coffee Bible Club: Never mention politics, ethics or anything controversial? writing off the back of the recent Obama, McCain, Warren forum at Saddleback and ahead of the New Zealand elections.
"As His Church we must live in this world and speak loudly and prophetically His Word with all the energy He gives us. But can we discuss issues like abortion, the politics of US foreign intervention, the economic impact of globalisation, interventionist and free market economics, the impact of Israeli politics on the stability of the middle east, the rights of the individual and the obligations of society, the ethics of policy and politics in any given nation with a keen gospel ear and a clearly tender heart?"
