Does faith matter in issue advocacy?

I just read this NPR story on climate change and faith:

Other than the fact that the author uses "clergy" as a single noun (why do I expect more from NPR?), rather than a collective one, it's a pretty good piece, and makes some interesting points.

I wonder if the same caveats apply to sustainable food system advocacy by the faith community?
- that where people stand on the issues is influenced much more by political party than religion
- that we need to frame our message in terms of specific justice outcomes.
