VOTING CONSIDERATION #5: I recognize that most “all-or-nothing” issues cast during election campaigns are NOT “all-or-nothing.” Neither candidate is as extreme or demonic as the other camp says he/she is; neither is as morally right and righteous as his/her own press indicates. Major ideological battles will not be won or lost because either George Bush or John Kerry is elected. In the end, right-wingers do not get their way and left-wingers do not get their way. Through tough, extended deliberation, a consensus response that is palatable to most Americans will emerge on most of the issues currently framed as “all or nothing” (though the consensus response may not be Biblically tenable and though I may continue advocate for core Biblical principles behind the issue). Read all seven considerations I make when voting.
