Why Your Faith Does Determine Your Politics

One of many thoughtful responses to my recent post 5 Things I Don't Understand about Christians Who Voted for Obama caught my attention. It expressed a thought that I saw reflected in other responses, though not with such clarity.  It was this:"My theology does not determine my politics." I couldn't disagree more.Tell that to the 9/11 hijackers. Tell that to William Wilberforce. Or to Martin Luther King, Jr. Or to Jesus, Paul, David, or countless other Biblical figures. Let's say what we … [Read more...]

Election 2012: 5 Things I Don’t Understand about Christians Who Voted for Obama

"God is in control." Well, duh.I've heard this refrain reminding of God's sovereignty countless times now since Election 2012 as a mantra to console evangelical Christians and religious conservatives bemoaning the recent win by Barack Obama. Contrary to what some seem to have concluded from my posts "It's the End of America as We Know It"  or "We Are All Victims Now, Mr. President," I have never doubted for a moment that God was, is, and will always be in control.But Scripture also de … [Read more...]

Election 2012: We Are All Victims Now, Mr. President

C.S. Lewis said in his famous sermon "The Weight of Glory" that if he were to ask twenty Christian leaders in his day what was the chief virtue, nineteen of them would answer Selflessness. Lewis argued that previous centuries of Christians would have answered instead with Love as the noblest of virtues. He was right in assessing his generation.But the 2012 Presidential election this week leads me to think that most Americans today would answer that question differently yet again. I suspect m … [Read more...]

Election 2012: It’s the End of America As We Know It

"It's a tragedy."  So said Dennis Prager upon first hearing the news that Ohio had gone to Obama, thus deciding the Election 2012 outcome in these United States, November 6, 2012. I would add my own thought as a lifelong Buckeye: It is embarrassing.By reelecting Barack Obama, we have made a choice as a nation that is so egregiously bad that I feel I must distance myself from the decision or risk being associated with the disastrous consequences of it. Even though I'm not sure that such se … [Read more...]

Don’t Expect Much from Third Presidential Debate Unless…

Even though I suggest you watch the third Presidential Debate -- hopefully the sit-down format won't revive the incessant smiling and interrupting of the last such format -- I really don't expect much to emerge that will change anything at this point in the race.Romney knows foreign policy much better than most give him credit for. Having followed him closely for the last six years and read his book No Apology -- which he wrote himself -- I am confident he'll be able to easily convince the … [Read more...]

Romney Was Right to Demand Truth on Libya, Benghazigate

Romney was right to demand the truth from President Obama on Libya and Benghazigate last night in the second Presidential Debate. After Obama's performance about being offended at the very idea that he would play politics with the tragedy,  or the result of a spontaneous protest over a YouTube video.He didn't get clarity. Neither did we.What we got was the moderator making a terrible call by butting in to support Obama's claim that he said the words "act of terror" in the Rose Garden the day … [Read more...]

Benghazigate: Obama Administration Cover-up to Rival Watergate?

More than a month after terrorists attacked the US embassy in Lybia on Sept. 11 and assassinated the US ambassador and three others, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now takes full responsibility for the security failures that permitted the attack.  But the questions remain as to why a YouTube video was blamed for an obvious terror attack.To date no one  that I have found has taken blame for the Obama Administration -- and the President himself -- calling the attacks random and blaming them o … [Read more...]
