‘Oaths and Religion’ (1999)

Rev. Byron Snapp retired from writing for Chalcedon shortly before I came on board, so I never had the opportunity to work with him.

His 1999 magazine article, Oaths and Religion, reminds us that in this respect, at least, “religion and politics do mix.”


Bear in mind that this was written back when the Clinton impeachment trial in the Senate provided us with “a real opportunity for our society to see how it defines truth.” And what we wound up with was, “It depends on what is is.”

Now we have “your truth and my truth,” with men insisting that they’re women and all the rest of our current war against reality–a war, we might say, against truth itself.

Our posterity will laugh at us for that.
