Midterms: Evangelical priorities include gas prices, inflation

Curated for you byCP Editors


“A survey overseen by Evangelical pollster George Barna via the Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University has revealed that Evangelical voters are more concerned about economic issues in the lead-up to the midterm elections than they are about cultural issues. The survey, which was conducted in July, found that issues such as gas prices and inflation are more important than issues such as abortion and religious freedom. Nearly two-thirds (61%) of respondents stated that “inflation and rising cost of living” will have “a lot” of influence on their votes in the midterm elections, while just 13% indicated that such concerns will have “not much” or no influence on their voting decisions. A majority of respondents also cited “food prices and shortages” (60%) and “oil and gasoline policies, prices” (58%) as having “a lot” of influence on their vote in the Nov. 8 election. Meanwhile, less than half of survey respondents cited cultural issues such as “abortion and the right to life” (46%)”

I wonder if priorities are not important to God?
