Christian charity launches election guide website

by Desmond Busteed

The new internet based guidance from CARE (Christian Action Research and Education) is built around some of the policies the organisation has campaigned on, including its opposition to equal marriage, sex education, gambling and online safety.

The website offers some basic information on how the election works and ways to find out how your local MPs voted on "policies and laws implemented that support marriage and family life".

Speaking to Premier, Nola Leach, Chief Executive, CARE said: "The website will cover a whole range of things, from the voting records of MPs; so they can help make up their mind. Looking at various issues....'what are the issues that should concern me as a Christian'... and how do I ask intelligent questions..."

The launch has coincided with soon to be published figures from a survey of 2,000 evangelical Christians conducted by the Evangelical Alliance between August and September 2014, looking at voting intentions.

In total, 94 per cent of evangelical Christians surveyed said they were certain or likely to vote, while of these, four out of five (80 per cent) said they would definitely be voting on May 7. 24 per cent said they were still undecided about who to vote for.

New research bringing together all of the recent polls suggests Ed Miliband has a narrow lead. But it also predicts another hung parliament, with Labour 40 seats short of an overall majority.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
