if you run into Jesus, maybe he can help us out

Lest we think that we're the only country in the world that has these issues, I just about choked on my Coke Light when I saw this headline in today's paper.

But actually, the take in this piece on church-state issues and the upcoming Ugandan elections was pretty good. All the pastors they interviewed for the article said that it's dangerous to endorse a candidate as God's representative because political parties aren't interested in the same things as the church is interested in, and essentially argued that no political party is going to be a perfect representation of a Christian view of things.

Very interesting. Looks like Uganda's ministers could teach an important lesson to some of our pastors in the U.S. of A.
