I’ve been doing some thinking lately (no snide remarks, Stuart).
Wanna know why I don’t like posting about politics? Because I know that I probably have friends who are voting for the person I’m not voting for.
Please understand that I’m not implying that you can’t support Obama and be a Christian. I believe there are many Christians who will be rallying behind Obama. I’m also not saying that someone must support X candidate if they are a Christian.
While I have conflicting ideas about what we should do in Iraq, how to reform education, the process of health care, and the deal-io about social security, I’m really conservative because of one issue and one issue alone. Abortion.
I am pro-life. I can not, and will not, vote for anyone who is pro-choice. I whole-heartedly believe that life begins at conception and that God designed each life long before it was even made. Therefore, I can’t vote for someone who values the mother’s choice over the life of a child.
I understand that there are reasons why other people support opposing parties but those reasons are certainly nothing to be divisive about or bring discord to friendships. I value relationships over the issues so I will always choose my friends over candidates.
