Politic-lish

Readers don't like politics of apolitical editorial

Your editorial in the October issue (page 58) contained some fine thoughts about keeping politics out of church policies and editorials. I agree. But then you went on to criticize the Christian Coalition based on charges rather than proven facts, while saying nothing about the longstanding efforts of many Democratic politicians to involve churches in their campaigns. As a resident of the Washington area, I'm aware of numerous instances of politicians speaking from church pulpits to urge people to vote for Democratic candidates and programs. Such practices are not limited to Washington, but occur many places--particularly in the South. How about some balance?

Your editorial served not only to misinform your readers, but to encourage voter apathy through your disdain of the November elections.
