The Christian Peoples Alliance (CPA) Manifesto was rated as coming second among parties running in the General Election during Thursday night's Newsnight contest of candidates.
Newsnight took place in London with members of the public, and candidates were given a 3 minute time limit with which to answer their questions. None of the members of public knew to which party each of the candidates belonged to.
Christian Peoples Alliance is a party rooted in the historic Christian faith that seeks to demonstrate the love of God through political service. Their principles state: "Our faith and principles are drawn from the Bible, especially the life and teaching of Jesus Christ, as well as from Christian political insights through the centuries."
The General Election 2005 Manifesto puts issues such as stable marriages, moral values in schools and pro-life ethics at the top of their priorities list.
"Our answer [to problems of modern society] is not to seek new laws...our policies instead advocate new inner patterns of obedience and vision, shaped in Christian faith and principles, as the way to renew society and heal its relationships," said Alan Craig, leader of CPA.
