What I Don't Understand

"But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven." ~ Matthew 19:14

Do you know what I don't understand? I don't understand Christians who support political candidates who support abortion. More than that, really. I don't understand Christians who are Liberals.

Perhaps the most important issue that has come to distinguish a Liberal from a Conservative is abortion.

In my view, Christianity and a pro-choice ideology are incompatible with each other.

Christians are supposed to believe in the sanctity of life. How do Christian Liberal/Democrats justify their party's stance on abortion? Considering the Democrat's stance on this issue, I don't understand how Christians can justify being Democrats.

Is it possible to support a candidate without supporting a major plank in his platform?

Especially a candidate who may have a considerable impact on legislation that would directly strengthen or weaken Roe v Wade in the future?

I don't think it matters much what a candidate for state Treasurer, for instance, believes about abortion.

But a President, Governor, or United States legislator?

How can a Christian reconcile his belief in the sanctity of life with the taking of innocent human life within the womb? It just makes no sense to me.

Why would a Christian vote for a candidate who openly advocates a position which favors abortion?

Barack Hussein Obama not only favors abortion on demand, in any trimester, without reservations or conditions, but when he was a State Senator in Illinois, he voted against legislation that would save live babies born in spite of failed abortion attempts.

Get that?

Obama voted against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act.

He thinks babies who survive abortion attempts should be neglected, and deprived of care, until they die.

How can Barack Obama call himself a Christian?

And, seriously, how could a Christian have voted for that man?

Christians who vote for such an obvious enemy to Christian values must be ignoring the abortion issue in favor of some other issue they consider more important. I believe they have a much too cavalier attitude regarding abortion.

Millions of innocent babies have been slaughtered since the Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade.

That is a fact that, in my opinion, cannot be ignored. How can any Christian consider that a trivial matter, not important enough to consider when choosing to vote for one candidate or another? If that is indeed their reasoning?

Here in Virginia, the race for Governor depends a great deal on the how the two candidates differ in their opinion of abortion. The Democratic candidate, Creigh Deeds, is actually using abortion as a wedge issue, advertising that his opponent, Bob McDonnell, has both introduced and supported legislation that would limit a "woman's right to choose". It is a major plank in his campaign platform. He would like you to vote against his opponent, based a great deal on this issue. That, and a thesis McDonnell wrote 20 years ago in graduate school, which really didn't contain anything objectionable to anyone who sincerely advocates Christian values.

In my opinion, Creigh Deeds is only hurting himself. Virginia has traditionally been a Conservative state. Yes, we have a Democrat Governor now, and Obama won Virginia in the last election, but I believe most Virginians are still vehemently opposed to abortion.

Deeds is at least 10 percentage points behind McDonnell in every poll. One would think he'd realize he's playing with fire.

And, make no mistake.

Abortion is a seminal issue with both Liberals and Conservatives.

One of the first questions Liberal media types ask Republican candidates for any office is, "Where do you stand in regard to abortion rights?" If a Republican says he is against abortion, the Liberal media uses this for ammunition to begin their onslaught of attacks against the Republican.

Democrats who are against abortion often keep a low profile on their view. If they campaigned on the right to life, they would lose their own party's support, but they often get Republicans votes.

Don't tell me that isn't significant.

Here's the wrap: If it's such an important issue (and I agree that it is), how can a Christian, in good conscience, support any candidate who favors abortion?

And frankly, although I am loathe to ask, how can one call himself a Christian who supports the wholesale slaughter of millions of innocent pre-born babies?

And yet, I know without a doubt, there are Christians who do.

I just don't understand.
