The Reformed Review has offered me the opportunity to explore the ways in which my faith impacts my political decision-making around a particular, difficult issue. It is the issue of civil rights for gay and lesbian people that I have chosen to explore. My purpose is not to advocate a position on that issue so much as to investigate the process of arriving at a conclusion on which to base a decision requiring a vote. I have organized the piece as follows: (1) background; (2) an exploration of the issues of faith that were raised; (3) a consideration of the faith and religious practice which informed my decision making; and, (4) a look at some larger issues which this decision raises that have implications for political decision-making.
