Bishops Put Education Before Hot-button Issues

"Bishops from three major Christian denominations Saturday said the state should focus on education and poverty and steer away from hot-button issues," reports Scott Rothschild in The Lawrence Journal World.

“There have been voices from some of the religious extremes who have tried to focus much of the energies of the state on hot-button issues without paying attention, and giving a voice to what we think are some of the critical issues, in the area of education, for instance,” says the Rev. Gerald Mansholt, bishop of the Central States Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

The daylong conference on education was attended by about 125 people at Grace Episcopal Cathedral in Topeka, according to Rothschild.
