I've noticed a similar laziness

There are times when I try hard to explain to a loved one why we need to actively oppose evil in politics and not just in our personal lives, and they also say something about it being the Last Days anyway, and Christ will come and make things right. It's very frustrating that they're not ready to take that responsibility. I never connected it to the Left Behind series, though. It's good to make that connection, so we can better counter such paralyzing falsehoods that allow evil men to take curtail rights of human beings in general.

I do believe that religion plays a role in what we're doing politically, because what people believe (including religiously) affects what they do politically. We need to advocate and strive for freedom and honesty and all of those other "righteous" principles on all fronts, including religious. We need to change hearts, which of course means religious hearts, too.
