Rod Dreher: Should the Church Stay Out of Politics?
Written By Laurie Higgins   |   02.07.20

In Part 4 of Pastor Derek Buikema’s interview with author Rod Dreher, they discuss the critical importance of Christians being involved in politics with Rod warning that while Christians may not be interested in politics, “Politics is interested in” Christians. He further warns that the growth of “LGBT rights can only come at the expense of religious liberty.”

Rod makes clear that enabling “the church to have the freedom to be the church is going to require us to engage in politics.” He emphasizes that as the “country is de-Christianized, we have to be prepared to fight for religious liberty.” Please take five minutes to watch this important video and share with others directly and via social media.
