I think it goes back to the fact that the evangelical
community often does not have a biblical vision of God.
- Tony Campolo

Of the 22 industrialized nations of the world,
we're dead last in per capita giving to poor people.

When you were born, you cried and everybody else was happy.
The only question that matters is this -
when you die,
will you be happy when everybody else is crying?

2,000 verses of Scripture that deal with responding

The two hot issues are the gay issue and the abortion issue.
These are the two defining issues in the evangelical community these days.
I'm sure that these hot buttons will be pushed,
time and time again.

they are all politically right.

woman, and child in Iraq, shouldn't we at least be
doing the same thing for every man,
woman, and child in the United States?
- Tony Campolo

I contend the state ought to do its thing and provide
legal rights for all couples who want to be joined together for life.
The church should bless unions that it sees fit to bless,
and they should be called marriages.
- Tony Campolo

and the church blesses the union.
That gets the problem solved.
- Tony Campolo

I don't know of many evangelicals who want to deny
gay couples their legal rights.
However, most of us don't want to call it marriage,
because we think that word has religious connotations,
and we're not ready to see it used in ways that offend us.
- Tony Campolo

and we moved from using the Bible to address the moral issues of our time,
which were social, to moral issues of our time that were very personal.

My theology is such that the God who loves Israel and
will not forsake Israel -
which is why I want to see Israel have a secure nation with secure borders -

to feed the hungry, to stand up for the oppressed.
I contend that if the evangelical community became more biblical,
everything would change.
- Tony Campolo

When you talk about evangelicals, don't forget that
a significant proportion of the evangelical community is African American.
And most African Americans - well over 90 percent,
thoroughly evangelical, thoroughly biblical -
will probably vote Democratic.
- Tony Campolo

as to whether or not certain religious leaders,
in terms of raising money - I hate to bring this up -
are pushing hot buttons.
