Does God have a place in the local city commission?  On your local school board?  How about in the courthouse where you live?  We believe He does and He uses to people to establish that presence.  Some political leaders and commentators believe that religious conviction and perspective has no place in the public arena.  We think they’re wrong.  And so did the Frenchman Alexis de Tocqueville.  Back in the 19th century, he wrote, “In America, it is religion which leads to enlightenment and the observance of divine laws which leads men to liberty.”  de Tocqueville believed religious conviction gave and protected liberty.  Religious conviction…or the lack of it…shapes a person’s perspective and view of the world. It is indeed the foundation of a civil society. And because of this, we encourage people with deep conviction to engage the process, shape the culture and make a difference.
