Donna, I agree with you. There is no such thing as a political Christian -- the two just do not mix and should not even be made to mix.

"Political Christian"? Sounds like an oxymoron to me. (i.e a contradiction in terms).

Randy, Reagan quote from a "Christianity Today" article, "He promised if our hearts are true, His love will be as sure as sunlight. And, by dying for us, Jesus showed how far our love should be ready to go: all the way." Was as at a National Religious Broadcasters convention prior to his second term. This is just one example. There are plenty more.

Daphn, where/when did Ronald Regan claim to be a Christian? He never attended church, Nancy was pregnant when he married her and he spoke of God in Deist terms. I could have easily missed something. Just curious.

Alan, Donna answered your question quite well. He basically has a legal team that fights for Christian rights. They collect petitions and submit cases or whatever it takes.

Jay asks for $100 dollars from those who call his office without a need of legal help.

I have no problem paying anyone who will look at a case. I pay the going rate. BUT when I call for an advertized "Free" product, I do not expect the company to then ask for $100. This is false advertising.

The FREE product I called about was NOT delivered, when I declined to pay the $100 the telephonist asked for.

He is just another professional in what he may think is a legal ministry.

Tofurabby ... Please tell us something about him.

Jay Sekulow, for any who don't know, is a constitutional lawyer, best known for defending Christians rights, arguing against the ACLU, and presenting cases to The US Supreme Court.(few lawyers get to do this).He occasionally does pro bono work, but a charge of $100 up front is a reasonable fee. He must turn down hundreds of cases monthly. Don't know if taking the "Sabbath" off at work is a "right". IMHO, a better testimony is to never ask for privileges other employees are not given.
---Donna2277 on 7/27/06

Susie, you may not know who he is, but I would bet that every politician out there does.
---tofurabby on 7/27/06

Sekulow? Who is he? That's how influential he is.
---Susie on 7/27/06

Madison, Also, on the matter of George Washington's death, I just did a search. He died of a throat infection, not pneumonia. And, as to him having a mistress, there is not conclusive documentation on that - just the tradition of one family line. Rumors attacking character do not always have any truth them - look what folks said about, and are still saying about, Jesus Himself. We do have documentation that Washington claimed to be Christian.
---daphn8897 on 7/25/06

Madison, Thanks for the historical info (not being sarcastic here). However, I'm not sure we can determine if someone was Christian soley on the basis of their sins. I just wanted to point out that historically some Christians have been politicians - more recently being Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, the 1st Pres. Bush, Pres. Clinton, and now G.W. Bush. All are flawed men, but I believe we'll see them standing with Jesus on That Day.
---daphn8897 on 7/25/06

daphne: I disagree with Washington's Christianity. 1. He was a Mason. 2. There is a Masonic Temple named after him in Virginia. 3. He died of pneumonia he caught while riding home from his mistress.

Being a christian any being a politician does not AUTOMATICALLY many one a christian politician. If a politician uses his (or her) christian beleifs to guide him/her in what he/she does (and there are many), much better for the country (and the world)
---peter5448 on 7/24/06

My best guess would be dobson or sekulow.

Jay Sekulow is after one's money. I have many experiences with his work, and his free radio offers are not at all free. He asks for a hundred dollars up front. I marked his e-mail as spam recently. Never changes. I sought his help on an employment issue, where I lost my job because a colleague disliked the idea of me having Sabbath Day observance accepted at work. Sekulow never even replied.

The question was phrased "political christian leader" so I figured they counted because of the influence they carry.
---tofurabby on 7/24/06

Actually, I was kidding about the "oxymoron". But DECEPTION is expected from politicians, not from Christians. Dr. Dobson and Jay Sekulow aren't politicians, but Christians using their skills for the public good. A "Politician" is one who seeks VOTES to hold public OFFICE. In the past,"public service", (i.e. elective position) was compatible with Christianity. Now Atheism or Humanism are more trusted. IMHO Bush unites Christianity and politics about as well as possible.
---Donna2277 on 7/24/06

My best guess would be dobson or sekulow. They both have a lot of political clout.
---tofurabby on 7/24/06

Helen & Donna, History would say otherwise. We've had some tremendous political leaders that were also Christian. Our first President, George Washington, is one. Also, as revealed by their letters John Adams and his wife were also believers. The issue is not being a Christian and pursuing politics as a means to influence our culture. The issue is allowing politics to influence your Christianity.

I totally disagree with the view that there is no such a thing as a political christian leader.Why not?Its the same as christian lawyers etc.
---pkay on 7/24/06

Bro. George Bush would be the most influential and second may be Stephen Harper of Canada.
"Blessed is the nation who's king fears the Lord". The more Christian leaders we have the better it is for any country. " When the heathen rule the people are opressed".
---john on 7/24/06

Are you saying a Christian should not get involved in politcs, or have anything to do with the running of the country?
If Christians in either USA or UK had not "gone political" the slave trade would still be be full flow.
---alan8869_of_UK on 7/24/06

I can't answer the question because I don't follow politicians that closely. But I will guess it's the one behind the scenes that doesn't put on heirs and strut their stuff. This person is a hard working, diligent person of integrity that works to please God, not man. In doing so, they are light in a darkened world, a shining star in a vast universe, and I thank God for them!
