FRC encourages clergymen to 'correct the politicians'
This language comes from the Family Research Council's latest round of prayer targets:
Christian leaders across the nation, silent in the past, have found their voices. They are speaking out now because secular politicians have frequently and increasingly crossed the line of separation between church and state, usurped eternal moral laws, lightly esteemed tested biblical values, openly profaned sacred institutions, and viciously assaulted the spiritual foundations of our nation, culture and government. Arrogating to themselves powers they do not have under our federal and state constitutions, they have become a direct threat to the faith and freedom of the American people. Clergymen now feel compelled to correct the politicians who have politicized weighty moral matters and treated them like trivia they can trade, discard or eliminate at will. In so doing they have abused millions of Americans who hold fast to these values and ideals. The specific biblical values Billy Graham has outlined as voting criteria are the bare essentials…the line that God-fearing people must hold in their clash with secularist politicians. If we fail to do so, our nation will either self-destruct or incur the wrath of the Living God or both.
Graham's call to Americans urgently to pray and vote on the basis of candidates' adherence to: 1. Biblical Values; 2. Support for Israel; 3. the Sanctity of Human Life; and 4. the Definition of Marriage as between One Man and One Woman, is a call to fundamental biblical faithfulness, not partisan politics. Graham is doing what every Bible-believing pastor and minister in America should be doing right now within his own sphere of influence: using his influence to make sure those within his sphere of influence understand the biblical issues at stake and faithfully use their sacred votes to advance righteousness in our nation and so to please God to whom we must give an account.

Our impending theocracy could be interesting, I guess. Good for punditry, if nothing else.
