Must Christians vote Republican?
In a post titled, “Was Jesus a Democrat or Republican?”, Jeff Myers writes:
I certainly have known the feeling.
I’m not a decline-to-state dude. I’m a left-of-center Republican, and one who has become increasingly frustrated with Republican political priorities of the past decade. And I distinctly remember attending a wedding a few years back at which a number of friends from my high school church youth group were shocked to hear that a Christian could vote for a Democrat.
Of course, evangelical Christians come in all shapes and colors. I’ve mentioned this recently in regards to gay marriage, but it is germane to non-hot-button political issues too.
