[h=1]Swedes against church dabbling in politics[/h] Most Swedes think that the church should look out for the vulnerable in society and join in the societal debate but not get involved politically, according to a new study carried out by the Church of Sweden and the church newspaper Kyrkans Tidning. Swedish Church members 'don't believe in Jesus' (15 Jun 11) Swedish church makes money from porn (16 May 11) 'Not OK' for pastors to operate machine guns: Swedish church (27 Apr 11) The church can speak out on issues that concern Swedish society, but not act politically, if it wants to follow the wishes of the people, said Jonas Bromander, head of the analysis unit of the church office in Uppsala. The study shows that Swedes think that the Church of Sweden and other religious organisations should voice their concern on irregularities in society publicly and get involved in helping those that need it. Theres support for the church getting involved in helping the homeless, drug users and the vulnerable in society. There is also support for the church having representatives present at hospitals, schools, prisons and as members of public crisis groups, said Bromander to Kyrkans tidning. There is also a small majority who feel that he church should be more active in the societal debate, but according to Bromander this is not because they feel that the church could have special input into the discussion but rather that everyones voice should be heard. According to the study, 60 percent of Swedes say they dont want the church to get involved politically at all. Swedes dont want the church to act on political issues, engage in lobbying, or enter into co-operations with other organisations or political parties, said Bromander to the paper.
