Is it possible to equally be active in both areas? Do your religous views shape for political views? What happens when your torn between 'how you should be' and 'what you feel'?
For example, I believe in the Christian faith and with that I am spoused to want to help all that need it, don't judge, etc... etc.. but on the conservative views I have I feel people shouldn't expect other people to always take care of them and you should earn your own and your life decisions shouldn't have to fall on me...(Welfare--the abusers, etc..)Am I to just 'turn the cheek' and help those 'less-fort.' or stick to what I feel?
I am just curious as to how others partake with their religion and political views intertwind...

I am very conservative in my life, but I do not agree with the government controlling every area of our lives, so I vote for and support rights and freedoms for everyone, not jut those with the same views, beliefs and lifestyle as me. I wouldn't want the government forcing anything on me or taking any of my rights away, so I do not support forcing or taking away rights of others either, even if I don't totally agree with them. America is about freedom and happiness for everyone, with the promise of no state religion, I like my freedoms and want everyone of every background in this country to enjoy them too, so I vote accordingly.

Oh, I just read the bit about welfare, I think it is a great idea, the majority of the people using welfare truly need it. As Christians we are called to help those less fortunate than ourselves, give food to the hungry, clothes to the poor, homes to the homeless, jobs to the jobless. I believe that when welfare is used properly it truly is a means to help the less fortunate to get ahead and back on their feet, there are those who abuse the system, but they aren't the majority.
