Another Take on Church and State

Nicholas Cafardi has written a really nice summary of the problems that accompany the increasingly partisan, one-issue stand by many Roman Catholic bishops with respect to the American political scene. Since I have seen written and heard said the same sort of nonsense from Lutherans as I have seen and heard from RC bishops, I think this analysis is worth reading.

So I commend it to you.

Where was Cafardi in his critique of the Catholic Bishops when they were part of what he calls the, "Democratic coalition of northeast urban Catholics"? The argument sounds partisan to me. The church would be better off if it separated itself from the state (i.e. partisan politics), quit taking tax exemptions, and focused upon the gospel and could speak prophetically to all concerned when the need arises. Oh well, next year in Jerusalem.
