You can vote however you like

I know some believe differently, but I think that you can be a Christian and vote right or left.

What really bothers me is how angry, passionate, even hateful that people get about politics. I am especially disappointed when Christians become so judgemental and extreme. Groups like Focus on the Family have gone way over the top in my mind.

That being said, I enjoyed this video. Kids reminding us that talking politics can be intellectually engaging, but also fun and relational, not mean spirited and hateful.

When it comes down to it, you can vote for whoever you see fit as the best leader. I can still respect you. I can still be your friend. We can still go to church together. God is on the throne today and He will still be on the throne on November 5th. I hope that you are not so tense about this thing that you cannot enjoy this fun, non-partisan song.

Anyone else tired of all the hate in politics?

AMEN! This post is a great reminder that our common bond, as Christians, should be following Christ, not a specific political party.

AMEN - - Sean and I feel the exact way. Sean says all the time - God is still God and Jesus is still coming back.

right on. i like to write forcefully at times about what i think, but i hope i never cross that line. i completely agree that groups such as focus on the family have really gone too far. it's sad that every 4 years christians begin questioning each others sanctification over their voting choice!
