Politics

Everything is politics... but politics is not everything... Anon.

All politics has some kind of ethics behind it... Jan

People get the government they deserve... Truism

First they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak out - because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists, and I did not speak out -because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out -because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me! -Pastor Martin Niemoller

To ignore politics is to ignore life. To ignore politics, or worse, simply support the status quo, is antithetical to the Christian Faith. Christ critiques all culture. How can we as his followers do less, or fail to follow him in his defence of the poor and dispossessed. Christians who say we should avoid politics have missed the basics of their faith and live a lie each time they vote or declare an opinion in their own assembly. Jan
