Who Should I Vote For In 2006? – Study Questions


Q1 – What agencies, associations and political parties were fighting to stop marriage redefinition? 

Q2 – What agencies, associations and political parties were fighting for same-sex marriage?

Q3 – Why does Canadian governance continue to move along an anti-Christian path even though the vast majority of Canadian voters claim Christianity is their religion?

Q4 – What is the dogma of separation of church and state?  How has this dogma been misapplied within contemporary Christendom?  What are the adverse consequences of chronic secularization of the state?

Q5 – What is an appropriate role for the church regarding its involvement in the democratic election process?

Q6 – Given the pivotal moral and religious issues of Election 2006, is it rational, scriptural; indeed, defendable under any criteria, to contend that the Holy Spirit is somehow double-minded or pluralistic (fractured in guidance), burdening many Christians to ardently fight and vote for defence of traditional marriage,  convicting others to equally advocate and vote for marriage redefinition and moving the remainder to indifference?

Q7 – Are there “limitations” set by God, which establish boundaries for the appropriate application of diversity, freedom and tolerance?   

Q8 – What is meant by the characterization of “lukewarm” Christians?  What effect do these believers have on the collective public Christian witness?

Q9 – Why is it that the Hutterites show little reservation in boldly and publicly declaring God’s position against same-sex marriage (without experiencing media distain), while some mainline evangelical denominations remain publicly silent for fear of being labelled “bigoted”?

Q10 – Has the advent of same-sex marriage brought more unity or more division to Canadian Christendom?

Q11 – Is Canada a nation before God, accountable for its governance decisions?

Q12 – Is God indifferent to politics?  Is there a case for Christians supporting the political Left?  Why do we consistently hear of the existence and influence of the so-called “religious Right” in politics?

Q13 – How did the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain and South Africa come to approve same-sex marriage?  What political dynamics did each country have in common that led to this outcome?
