An Imperative for Christian Worldview

I've advocated endlessly in this blog for government leaders who not only profess a Christian worldview but also make decisions based on that worldview. The necessity for this type of leadership grows more important every day.

Two events happened recently -- one on the west coast and one on the east coast (anyone surprised by this?) that further prove my point. In California, Governor Schwarzenegger outraged pro-family groups by signing into law a bill that gives homosexuals new and far reaching powers. You can read about it here. It simply amazes me that this agenda continues to get support from political leaders.

Another interesting development is in a lawsuit pending Massachusetts regarding whether parents are entitled to be notified if the subject of homosexuality is discussed in the classroom. The city and school officials involved in the lawsuit have taken the position that the state (i.e. the school district) has a "legitimate interest" in promoting homosexuality to elementary students. Elementary students!! The phrase "legitimate interest" has a significant meaning in constitutional law that I won't try to explain but I certainly hope that the judge will reject this argument. How can the state's interest, even if "legitimate", override the interest (and rights) of parents to know what their children are being taught in school.

We will continue to loose the cultural war if we don't have political, governmental and community leaders with Christian worldviews who are willing to stand up and be counted.
