My good friend Dennis shared this quote which he pointed out seems particularly important with so many republicans seeming to think that the US is about God's business.
The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state. It must be the guide and the critic of the state, and never its tool. If the church does not recapture its prophetic zeal; it will become an irrelevant social club without moral or spiritual authority.” . Strength to Love, 1963.
