My Religion, and My Politics

See the source image

Liberals and pietists never tire of faulting us who “mix religion with politics”–even though, for leftids, their politics is their religion.

But they want Christians to compartmentalize their thought; and that’s how you wind up with professed Catholics like John Kerry and Nancy Pelosi pouring public money into the coffers of Planned Parenthood, defending and funding abortion. This is, to put it as mildly as I can, not honest.

If our “religion” does not manifest itself in the political positions we take, it’s not really our religion, is it? And when our country, as a matter of public policy, acts contrary to God’s immutable moral law, then our dear leaders drag us all into their own sin. Worse, they put our country in danger of God’s judgement–as when a few lawyers on the Supreme Court “legalize” the same-sex parody of marriage, without benefit of any law being passed by the legislature, and the, er, president orders the White House lit up with “rainbow” lights to celebrate this evil. It is wrong for Christians to support this. Instead, we should be praying for national repentance and a reversal of this course.

We are also faulted for not holding out for some mythical simon-pure righteous candidate: we should not have voted for Donald Trump, the liberals declare, because he’s a sinner and we’re supposed to be against sin. Never mind that we voted for him because the alternative, Hillary Clinton, was unthinkable. There was no righteous candidate. In 2016 the next president was going to be either Trump or Clinton, no one else. Not to vote for Trump was to help Clinton. And that was indefensible.

We cannot support public policies that are flagrantly abominable, nor the politicians who create and enact those policies. And the list of those policies would be a very long one.

So, yeah, I don’t care if my religion overlaps into my politics. I think it should. Period.

  1. I’ve always said that everyone has a religion, and one religion, or world-view, will always have more sway than others. That’s just the way it is. So it’s impossible to separate religion from politics or anything else.

    1. I’m really tired of hearing every kind of disagreement or disapproval called “hate,” and the person who disagrees or disapproves called a “hater” — or, in this case, “filled with uncompromising hate” (and I’m not sure what “compromising hate” might be like). The vilification of persons seems to be coming from the one who accuses a person of being evil (i.e., an individual filled with hate), rather than the one who deplores an action or system of ideas.

    2. I was simply asking a question given his vitriolic remarks about liberals as if they were some manifestation of evil incarnate.. given his Christian beliefs. I certainly do not “hate” conservatives like that and I don’t need to affirm that by quoting verse and scripture. I’m willing to compromise.. conservatives want to battle it out for dominance. Not sure that’s being overly Christian from what I was taught. But in the end, I suppose it matters not.

    3. Compromise, eh? How do we do that? Have “gay marriage” and abortion only on odd-numbered days? Whites are only guilty of everything on Thursdays and Fridays?

      Much better to utterly defeat the Left, and then work hard to undo the damage that they’ve done.

      Every time conservatives “reach across the aisle,” as the pathetic saying goes, they wind up losing fingers.

    1. Can’t the other 49 secede from California?
      Oh, wait, I know! We can have a compromise! Only have **some** illegal aliens holding public office.
