I agree. I was just shocked by how much I agree with Republicans on certain moral issues. I've never cared or will ever care about politics, I just thought it was interesting.Republicans and Democrats are both corrupt in my humble opinion. I would say Republicans are less Christian though because they're all about not helping people, less welfare etc. Though Democrats are about helping the poor (which is pleasing to God) they also support gays, which I think is not pleasing to God.
Jesus said live by the sword die by the sword.. So today that would mean live by the gun die by the gun.. How can a Christian promote guns?
Honestly though I think politics are a waste of time for Christians. Everything about it in my opinion is worldly, and we are called to be aliens of this world. Not caring about worldly matters, but only the gospel.
I think most ideas are good in theory but awful in practice. Let's take the republicans for example; they don't think the government should be handing out as much welfare. I believe they don't want to cut all welfare, but drastically cut down on it. Why would they do this? I think they believe that it is up to the common man to take care of his neighbor not the government, something I would agree with. The problem is, there are too many people, republicans and democrats, who could care less about their neighbor and are unwilling to give, hence the government having to step in and take care of the situation and hence it being a good idea in theory, but terrible in practice.Republicans are all about not helping the poor. They believe "if I earned this money, then why should I have to help anyone" Not very Christian in my humble opinion.
Short story is that...........there are anti gun and gay marriage support and abortion supporters on both sides of the fence.I can't decide if I'm Republican or what? I know they are against abortion, gun control, and gay marriage. So I guess I'm one of them?
