“I so agree with Capitol Ministries philosophy to leave politics out of their ministry.
I don’t mix politics with faith either. My goal is to make it to God’s kingdom and help other people make it there too. I happen to be elected because God put me here and I will stay here until he has other plans for me.
There are a lot of groups and a lot of pastors who come into my office. I don’t turn anybody away. But some of them want to talk to me about legislation. I stop them because if you want to come in and minister to me, don’t try to push an agenda.
Of course I vote on legislation, and I have to be accountable to God for the decisions I make, but I don’t want to have a pastor come in and tell me how to vote.
If we focus on changing hearts and minds rather than on what legislation defines us, as Christians we would get a lot further. I like that Capitol Ministries has that vision too.”
