Can Church be kicked out of State politics?
The church in Uganda is comprised of the catholics, pentecost and born again. The church has quite a massive number of followers. The church and the state have similar comparison in that they both manage society.
There has been debate in Uganda weather the churhc should continue to advise the political leaders, that is the state, or keep silent! My opinion is that the church should continue to play the rolle of advising the state and not in active politics, basing on the following reasons;
When tha state or country goes in chaos, the citizens do run for help from the church that is relief , in terms of shelter, food , clothe to mention but a few. The churh incurs costs in providing relief to the war affacted peole thus the churh should continue to advise the state on political issues which may seem to bring chaos in future.
Since the churh has a massive follower, it should advise the state and forward the needs of the citizens since the church leaders are always in position to know the needs of their congregation.
However,much has the church should advise the state, the church shouldn't take part in active politics that is to say the church leaders shouldn't go for political positions since politics is a 'dirty game'!
