Is Christianity Left, Right, or Nether?

Dr. Brian Lee, pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Washington DC, wrote an interesting opinion piece over at The Daily Caller. It’s part of a series where one writer makes the case for Christianity being politically conservative, one that it’s liberal, and one that it’s neither (Rev. Lee’s view).

Warning: If you go on to read the “liberal” article I recommend a belt of whiskey first. It’s a long, rambling invective that offers no discernible arguments; all we learn is that the author hates Christianity, even though the Christianity he hates is a product of his own imagination.

Here’s how Rev. Lee kicks it off . . .

Both the Christian Right and the Christian Left get the question of Christianity and politics wrong.

Christianity is not politically conservative or politically liberal — though Christians may be either. Christianity is not political at all. It is in a sense politically agnostic. But in another sense it calls into question the basis of every earthly power, including politics.

You can read the entire article here.
