Friday Five- Faith and politics...

Well it may or may not have escaped the notice of many that over in the UK we have been awaiting the results of the General Election.... it has been the most closely fought election for many years, and the result... a hung or balanced Parliament, with no outright winner... and it has got everybody talking...

So what do you think about the mix of faith and politics:

1. Jesus a political figure: discuss...

2. Politics in the pulpit, yes or no and why?

3.What are your thoughts on the place of prayer in public life...

4.Is there a political figure, Christian or otherwise that you admire for their integrity?

5.What are your thoughts on tactical voting, e.g. would you vote for one individual/party just to keep another individual/ party form gaining power?

Bonus- is there a song which might sum this all up- if so post a video or a link...
