In a recent interview about his involvement in fighting AIDS, poverty,
and global warming, Rick Warren said he’s not for the right wing or the
left wing but for the whole bird (ht: BWIII). Amen to that.
I am more and more convinced that the political designations "right" and "left" are becoming meaningless terms, and it would seem that Christian concerns are to be found on both sides of the line. Let’s be for the "whole bird" of the gospel, and show up wherever Christ is, whether we’re resisting the discarding of the unborn or the devastation of creation.
….except now I have no idea how to vote! Seems there are few good choices anymore, and I have toyed with pulling completely away from the political scene. Heresy, I know….unfortunately, politics as they are practiced in our generation (and have studied in our homeschool thru the years) sickens me to the core, and I feel a sense of irony in voting at all. No matter whose button I push at the booth, I’m voting ‘for’ things I don’t agree with, and against things I feel passionately about.
