So if you know me (and most of you don’t) you know that I am anything but conservative in my politics…You also know I hate large mindless voting blocks (read evangelical republicans and African American democrats) who don’t really think, they just follow the masses and vote for who ever their leaders tell them to vote for. That said I can not at all get into all the love other Christ followers are showing Obama. I mean I love to hear the guy speak and wish I could vote for him, but this is a guy who supports partial birth abortion. I know, by the way, that abortion is not the only issue, but it is still an issue. I love the fact that young evangelicals are waking up to other social issues…we need too! But that does not mean that we abandon other postions where by some political fluke we happened to be right, and I find it hard to make a compelling argument for abortion from a Biblical position. To me this is a civil rights issue, unborn children need to be protected.
Right now I love Huckabee, especially when I hear people whine about how he is not really conservative…To which I say exactly!
On another note it disappoints me to hear all the racist rhetoric about immigration. Most of you got here somehow…and it was not because your family line began here on American soil…beyond that if you are a Christ follower, i think you have an obligation to put people before country. To me this is a justice issue. It makes me sad to hear Tom Tancredo and his ilk spouting stuff that sounds like it could come from the Klan. I think this country is becoming increasingly polarized and it is acceptable to say all kinds of racist things about Latinos and Hispanics and pretend like it is OK…it isn’t. In fact if we are to be the people of God then we are called above all else to be a people of reconciliation.
Oh well just late night rambling….
