Political partisans are always trying to convince the public that their opponents in the other party are not fit for office. They argue over questions of experience, qualifications, and policies.
However, it seems the national discourse has hit a new, disgusting low – thanks to the New York Times – and it should concern Christians most of all!
New York Times author Frank Bruni makes the argument that Vice President Mike Pence is unfit for office solely because he is a believer. This is blatant anti-Christian bigotry pure and simple.
Federalist writer, Glenn Stanton, puts the New York Time’s article into horrifying perspective;
“Think about that a moment though. For all the venom and apocalyptic hysteria being spewed at everything Trump has ever said, done or probably even thought — and there is plenty there of concern — there is someone even “worse” than this president….
Pence’s original and most damning sin is that he’s a Christian who actually believes what Christians actually believe.”
The NYT paint Vice President Pence as an “insane fanatic”, and a “religious zealot” – words not even the left use to describe Islamic suicide bombers. They even go so far as to say that his faith is evidence of “mental illness.”
But what exactly is this faith that the New York Times is so scared of, that they have given Mike Pence the name “The Holy Terror” ?
As Glen Stanton explains, Mike Pence’s faith is just like that of the average American Christian. Let me know if this describes you also;
“Pence is really no different than your run-of-the-mill evangelical, like millions of Americans. [Pence] believes that God governs the affairs of men, that prayer is effectual and worth doing, that marriage and family are best when built upon a married mother and father, that life is sacred and abortion destroys life…”
The New York Times is one of the thought leaders of the Left – and whatever they say, you can count on becoming the official Liberal stance in short order. Should anyone with a sincere Christian conviction be barred from American public life?
