How acceptable is it for an American Episcopalian to be a Democrat and to actively support the policies of the Democrats? Where should Christians stand when we discuss Social Security, Medicare, government provided services, government programs for the poor, the elderly and the mentally ill? Where should Christian stand in issues of war and peace? Where should Christians stand on issues of protection of air or water by the government? Where should Christians stand when we discuss banking regulation? Where should Christians stand when we discuss increasing taxes to those who earn $1M a year or more? I have watched the political scene since I first debated about politics in 1960 and have read much about 20th politics before that. IMHO, there has been a huge change in Christians since 2000.
