During one of the candidate forums I was asked a most profound question – a question that everyone must answer, not just this councilman. “Candidate Hudelson… can you keep your religion separate from your politics?” Great question! It is a question that I will give a short answer to, and continue to answer while I hold this office.
The short answer: No one keeps his religion out of his politics. It is not possible to separate what you believe from your actions and decisions. Everyone has a belief system and responds according to that set of beliefs.
How can I make that statement? Aren’t Atheists without religious beliefs? No. They have a belief system (worldview) too. The Bible says that all men are either for Jesus or against him (Matthew 12.30). Which one are you? What is your belief system? It will show up in your decisions.
