Contrary to what many in the press would have you believe, Christians are neither sinister or psychopated. The primary difference between those of us behind this blog and many others is that we realize our shortcomings and failings, but we know there is an answer.
We are just people who share a particular world view along a concern for our country and the world. I have been involved in politics for the past twenty years or so and before that, in various other activities to improve the lives of those around me.
I have served as chairman of the Chesterfield County Republican Committee in Virginia. There are some who may dispute this, but Chesterfield is the premier unit in the state with regard to vote production… to the point where the county provided margins to insure victory in the 2000 and 2004 presidential races and did more than our share in 2008. This does not mean that we are just creating another wing of the Republican Party. There is plenty of blame to place there as well.
We are called to be salt and light and stand up for the widows and fatherless… and we can’t do that by hiding behind church doors. Politics can be a nasty sport and you get bloodied sometimes but that is better than sitting on the sidelines and watching the country and world fall apart around us.
