For years Christians have been told “you can’t legislate morality” so “religion doesn’t belong in politics.” But now we have self-proclaimed moral leaders in the political arena. With a new moral code.
This has to do with who we are as moral leaders…in the moral moment there is no neutral…you are either complicit in the evil…or you are fighting against it.Cory Booker, calling for Kavanaugh’s nomination to be opposed

I have been called to act…the Lord does not call on us to sit back. The Lord does not just call on us to have a good heart. The Lord call on us to act.Elizabeth Warren campaigning in churches
The new moral code is “Religion for Liberals only.” Leading liberals have decided to allow religion in politics- perfectly appropriate- but only for like-minded liberals. They demand agreement and use religion as a weapon against any who dare to disagree. This code is clearly demonstrated in confirmation hearings for conservative judges.
Judge Amy Barrett’s confirmation hearing: Several Democrat lawmakers expressed concern that Barrett’s religious convictions would have an impact on her legal decisions. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) actually said “the dogma lives loudly within you.”
Judge Brian Buescher’s confirmation hearing: Five Democrat senators submitted questions in writing, rather than in public. The senators, including Hawaii’s Mazie Hirono and California’s Kamala Harris, expressed concern about Buescher’s membership in a Catholic charitable organization which, according to the senators, has taken “extreme positions” such as opposing same-sex marriage and abortion. Each senator insinuated that Mr. Buescher’s membership should disqualify him, and asked if he would quit the organization to avoid “the appearance of bias.”

Religion for Liberals only. I intend to speak up about my faith and not be silenced.
What is your opinion? Can people of faith hold political office?
