A Little Sanity In A Crazy World/election

Race-4-2008 (from CBS News), January 15, 2008, posted by Tommy OliverFiled under: Issues, Fred Thompson

CBS NEWS - Mixing theology and social issues on the campaign trail is rare for Fred Thompson, but he discussed it today answering a question from a member of the audience. A woman asked him if he would “as a Christian, as a conservative” continue President Bush’s programs to combat global AIDS.

“Christ didn’t tell us to go to the government and pass a bill to get some of these social problems dealt with. He told us to do it,” Thompson said.

“The government has its role, but [on one hand] we need to keep firmly in mind the role of the government, and the role of us as individuals and as Christians on the other.”
