Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and others on the Religious Right claim that God has taken a side in this election, and that Christians should only vote for George W. Bush. The Bush-Cheney campaign even told volunteers it was their "duty" to make church directories available to the campaign.
How has the love of Jesus, the Prince of Peace - and his good news to the poor - been distorted by the pro-war, pro-rich political agenda of the Religious Right? Our faith has been hijacked, and it's time to take it back!
Click below to sign our petition and send a message to America that God is not a Republican or a Democrat, and that the Religious Right does not speak for you. Remind America that Jesus taught us to be peacemakers, advocates for the poor, and defenders of justice.
With your help, Sojourners will also place a full-page advertisement in The New York Times, followed by local newspaper and online ads across the United States.
Please forward this e-mail to your family and friends. Tell faithful citizens to make their voices heard.
Sign the petition, support the campaign, and spread the word. Together we can take back our faith!
(This is a good statement from our friends at Sojourners. Do I agree with all of the points on their web site? No. But I don't think that Christians have to be in full agreement with each other on all issues. We can be Republicans, Democrats, Greens, etc. and be Christian. The most important thing is that we put our religion before our politics.)
