Political God-talk

John H. Armstrong makes the point that all too often political God-talk is just about baptizing, so to speak, particular political initiatives. I don’t object to God-talk per se, unless it’s invoked to rule out absolutely any role for prudence or political judgment. We rarely, if ever, get precise policy prescriptions from Scripture.

That doesn’t follow. A candidate who is hostile to traditional religion or committed to the unbridled expansion of human power might still be anathema to traditionalist believers.
