Evangelization and Political Action

Is there a correlation between the way a particular religious denomination evangelizes and how they approach political action? Could it be that we all see our approaches to political action as ‘the way to go’ because those approaches are driven by our personal beliefs on how to advance the kingdom of God?

Much has been made of the religious-right’s visible and forceful entry into political action. It makes many of us uncomfortable, uneasy and even angry at times. But I wonder what will really change until we truly understand the driving force behind that movement, from their perspective.
