USCCB goes Full-Tilt into Politics

Good for them. The Church has a right to speak about political issues in the public square.
They have rolled out the following for their Faithful Citizenship campaign (see the website here):
*Facebook fan page.
*Sign-up for their email list and enter to win an ipod.
*YouTube videos:
-overview video
-Faithful Citizenship Quiz part I and part II.

My one problem is with the theology of the Kingdom of God at the end of the overview video. They say that the kingdom of God won't come if we don't participate in bringing it about and will only come if we answer the call to faithful citizenship. That is just wrong. The fullness of God's kingdom will come with or without us playing a part in it and will come only when God decides to do so.
