A Liberal Answers the Question, "Should Politics and Religion Mix?"Book - 1995
Political Religion resounds an emphatic "Yes!" to the question, "Should politics and religion mix?" In an eloquent response to the political platform of the religious right, Charles R. Stith advocates a model of reconciliation over resorting to conflict and contends that the proper mix of religion with politics is one that requires us to give priority to justice, harmony, and equality. Political Religion raises these values to prominence, urging that they be embraced as the political agenda for the Church. Stith offers a framework for practicing politics religiously, examining the Civil Rights Movement, the Church in the post-Civil Rights Era, the Church and political campaigns, Jesse Jackson and Pat Robertson, coalition building, and projections for the future.
