I am by no means, Pro-McCain…

I’m just anti-Obama.

Please read today’s WSJ article entitled, The Audacity of Life.

I had a friend explain to me the theory that, under Clinton, abortion rates went down becuase sex education funding was allowed for more than just abstinence teaching, so really Clinton was more pro-life than say, Bush. This same friend refused to answer an email about this article that showed the numbers continued to drop under the Bush administration. Now I know I am a heated guy, and can be a bombastic pain in the ass to argue with, but I will let you be the judge as to the tone and trajectory of my “argument” – if you could even call it that:

I am curious as to your opinion. I highly respect both your opinion and
the attitude you showed toward this topic, and when reading this
thought, man I wonder if there is another side, perspective, or
anything you have heard. Mostly becuase I am still on the fence
regarding how much weight this issue will carry in who I support.

Thanks man,

Matt

I did not receive a response. Why? There is no intelligent, God honoring, evangelical justification for Obama’s stance on Abortion. There are a number of intelligent, God honoring evangelical justifications for many things he is about. Abortion is not one of them.

My wife has often said that we cannot say that we are pro-life and at the same time vote for a candidate that promulgates an unnecessary war in which thousands die. In doing so, you are a hypocrite, and are really saying: I value the life of babies here, but not there. I am assuming this is part of Ryan’s reasoning for considering Obama. This is a good reason not to vote for McCain, but far from a compelling reason to vote for Obama.

Adam often makes good arguments that the government’s primary task in foreign affairs is to uphold the constitution (specifically: life, liberty and the pursuit) for it’s citizens before that of others. I agree. However, the government’s responsibility and our motives for voting are not necessarily synonymous. They can be, as in Adam’s case, but they are not required to be so.

Once again I am reminded that there is no way to vote with my conscience. With either candidate I will be voting for a man who will promote certain ideals/policies that are antithetical to Christian ethics. With this being the case I take no issue with a Christian voting for either Obama or McCain. I do have a hard time with a Christian “supporting” them. Sure, some aspects of your faith and how you think the country should be run will be appeased, but at the end you are supporting:

a) A candidate who promotes the killing of innocent children within our borders,

or,

b) A candidate who is fine with the killing of children as long as they are outside our borders.

So here is my official endorsement: I am anti-both.
