Well, I wonder if this is an overly-politicized view of Christianity. To me Christianity is its own worldview or ideology or whatever you call it. The future of Christianity should be in the Bible and the traditional teachings of the Church, not in any political ideology. Christianity does not need conservatism to survive. It needs only its own traditional teachings, and whether those correlate with political conservatism is besides the point. [[User:AddisonDM|AddisonDM]] 12:27, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

Looks like I'm the first comment... Well, I wonder if this is an overly-politicized view of Christianity. To me Christianity is its own worldview or ideology or whatever you call it. The future of Christianity should be in the Bible and the traditional teachings of the Church, not in any political ideology. Christianity does not need conservatism to survive. It needs only its own traditional teachings, and whether those correlate with political conservatism is besides the point. AddisonDM 12:27, 24 June 2009 (EDT)

While I would agree that Christianity will "survive" regardless, I respectfully disagree about the rest of your comment. Survival is not the issue. The issue is Christianity's growth and beneficial impact. Conservatism is essential for Christianity to thrive as much as it can.
As to politicizing Christianity, the liberals are doing that already. The issue is the extent to which conservatism steps up to the plate and counters it, and strengthens Christianity in the process.
I give specific examples and reasons. Do you disagree with any of them? Thanks and Godspeed.--Andy Schlafly 12:46, 24 June 2009 (EDT)
