What’s Your God’s Politics? 

Pin It

In today’s volatile and divisive political climate (I don’t remember it ever being this bad), it appears that a person’s political leanings are in direct correlation to how they interpret or view their god. One movement espouses an “eye-for-an-eye” philosophy, demanding people be thrown into everlasting hellfire for their transgressions. The other focuses on “turning the other cheek,” “loving their enemies,” and “forgiving others 70 times 7.”

Some recognize the latter’s more peaceful and civil philosophy instantly, while those in the first group end up seeking out and relating to angst-breeding talk-radio pundits for advice just so long as these pundits wave the flag until it is a blur.
