For many years in this country, we have been told that Conservative did not equal Christian. In fact the Father of the Modern Conservative movement, Barry Goldwater was very plain on this subject. He did not want Conservative politics mingled or tied to in any way the Church.
But, this is exactly what happened in the Eighties and Nineties with the Moral Majority. And for many, especially in the South, the Conservative Republican was a Christian. But, we see the very clear signs that this is far from true.
So, we should not be shocked at what Toni Lahren said about Pro-Life people being hypocrites if they are Constitutionalists.
On Friday’s episode of “The View,” she told the audience she was pro-choice.
“I’m someone that’s for limited government. So I can’t sit here and be a hypocrite and say I’m for limited government but I think the government should decide what women do with their bodies,” she said. “I can sit here and say that, as a Republican and I can say, you know what, I’m for limited government, so stay out of my guns, and you can stay out of my body as well.”
What this points to is the fact that we live a world that people come to certain conclusions for different reasons. You see, the question for Ms. Lahren has nothing to do with morality but law.
She feels that the thing in her body that a Christian would call a child, she believe is still a part of her body. I do not presume to know Lahren’s beliefs, but it is apparent that she does not view pregnancy as the Bible does. This is why she can come to all the right conclusions with the Constitution but not the unborn.
Once again, we see the reason that we cannot place our trust in politics or even those who claim our political label.
