I grew up in a family that had its politics rooted in the Democratic Party. My father, an evangelical pastor, bred into me the principle that one’s Christian faith mandates a duty to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to care for the homeless, and to provide Christian charity to those in need.
In short, I was taught that the identification badge of people of genuine authentic faith is that they truly care for the little guy, the disenfranchised. That was why my father was a proud Democrat.
I don’t believe that he would have such a political affiliation today.
