Distracted by Politics

“There is yet another evil, though of a different kind, which we descry in the present state of society, and which from painful observation has been often pressed upon us as a great hindrance to the revival of living piety – namely, the deep and wide-spread political character of society...from the highest to the lowest ranks of society every man is more or less a politician, and with multitudes politics forms such an engrossing theme as to consume nearly the whole of their leisure thought and reading and converse.”

Amen. A great evil and hindrance to piety, indeed.
