Every time this conversation comes up, I avoid it. It is not for lack of an opinion (of course), nor for lack of passion about the topic. I just ... I just don't want to get into it. It affects too many people that I love, and talking about it doesn't do me (or them) any good. But I will say this, in general, about politics and religion and the intermingling of the two. Here it is, for those who were curious: my general opinion about politics and Jesus.
If you are a believer, and you agree with a particular right or privilege or governmental decision, then, in that particular situation, your response is easy. Jesus tells us to love our neighbors, and it's easy to love someone that sees life the same way you do. So your response, if you choose to follow Jesus, is to love those who agree with you.
And if you are a believer, and you disagree with a particular governmental decision, then it's a little harder to respond in a way that is conducive with the teachings of Jesus. Jesus says to love your enemies, and to pray for those who persecute you. Paul goes on to say that we should bless those who curse us, and in our anger, not to sin. So if you are following Christ, your response (biblically) is to love the people who disagree with you, and to even love those who benefit from their decisions.
Whether you agree or disagree, as a believer, our response should be one of love.
In light of this, what does it matter what I think? Shouldn't my response be the same?
Now I'll duck and cover, since tomatoes are in season.
