Stanley Hauerwas on Christians and Politics

Some really good stuff in this audio, such as:

I’m not in any way telling Christians to withdraw [from politics].  Hell,  I just want you to be there as a Christian

In the name of doing good,  one of the things we’ve done is build state power that is therefore capable of bombing Iraqis

As Christians,  one of the things we can do is to act in a way that makes national state machinery less official

Don’t think that the only way to be socially responsible is only through the way that has been given to you by the state powers of modernity

By the way, happy new year.
