I'm embroiled in a discussion on a leftist-controlled message board, and one know-nothing said that he couldn't vote for any politician who used religion to reinforce policy. I know that Obama claimed it was his religion that caused his "evolution" on gay marriage. But I seem to recall him using Christianity in the past -- and sometimes specific scripture passages -- to support his policies.
Anyone have any examples?

Sorry this answer is not more complete and less do it yourself. Perhaps I can come back to it later, but I assume your discussion is time-centered.
