Why do Liberals Hate Christian Conservatives in Politics?

Do you ever listen to the “health experts” talk about the heath crisis of the day?  They often talk as if they know everything associated to curing the latest malady.  For example first there was the “don’t eat salt” rage.  Then we found out that using salt is just fine.  Then it was the “don’t eat eggs” craze.  Now eating eggs is encouraged in the high protein diets.  Then there was the “everyone is too fat” fad.  This one is really funny because last year the government released the ideal body weight charts for Americans.  I have always been pretty skinny, but on the government chart, 6ft. tall 177 lbs and I am 10 lbs over weight.  Now just this week we hear on the news that being over weight is a good thing.  So what is it?

Liberals are like these “health experts”, they first talk of this crisis, then the next one then on to another one.  They are constantly changing what is right and wrong, both in politics and in society and they change the measuring stick by which we are to judge the issue. 

One example of this is the same-sex marriage debate.  Could you imagine John F. Kennedy supporting same-sex marriage?  Could you imagine him making any of the augments that the liberals are making now in support of same sex marriage?  I think not.

Look around in liberal circles; you see significant support for the Communist, Castro of Cuba.  Could you imagine Kennedy thinking that way?  Again, I think not.

Liberals change their minds and their arguments whenever it suits them.  They go with the direction of society, whatever that direction is.  Whether it leads to debauchery and destruction or not. 

Let me give you an example of this.  Liberals supported “no fault divorce”.  They say this was for the protection of women so that if they were getting abused they could easily get out of a bad marriage.  That is just fine, if a woman was getting abused she should get out of a marriage.  The problem is, she could have gotten out of an abusive marriage before with the laws the way there were. 

But, what was the result?  We have rampant divorce everywhere.  You don’t need any real reason at all to get divorced.  And what has been the cost to society?  As Hillary says, “It’s about the Children”.  Our children have experienced massive devastation, from school shootings, drugs, cutting, teen pregnancy, the list goes on and on. 

But Christian Conservatives generally stand for absolute unchanging truth. In our current example, a Christian conservative would have said that divorce is wrong and we should not go down the path of easy divorce.  Therefore we would not have experienced this current devastation.  Conservatives believe in absolute right and wrong or absolute truth.

Once you move to the world of absolute truth, relativism gets pushed aside.  The effect of this is that for most of the issues of the day, Liberals loose the debate.  Their debates are not based on unchanging truths; they are based on emotions and feelings so when a trump card of absolute truth gets played they quake in fear.  They know they are defeated. 

What does this mean for Conservative Christians? 
1. Know the truth
2. Live the truth
3. Speak the truth

If you do this, you will have an incredible influence on society.

About waynem

As a Minnesota based photographer and artist I have been greatly influenced by the Upper Midwest. I focus my skills and energies on portraits, landscapes, cityscapes, architectural and fine art work. My best work comes from images first painted in my mind. I mull over a prospective image for weeks or months, seeing it from different angles and perspectives, then finally deciding what to capture. The result is images that deeply touch people's emotions and powerfully evoke memories and dreams. My images are used commercially by companies and organizations ranging from Financial Services firms, mom and pop Ice Cream shops and The Basilica of St Mary to communicate their shared vision and values. Book and magazine publishers have featured my images on their covers. My photographs also grace and enhance the decor of many fine homes.

  1. Christian Carnival

    Welcome to the Christian Carnival! I have been so blessed to be able to read all of these posts ahead of time, so I’ll hurry up and let you get to them too. Please excuse my methods of order, but I am a Packrat, I just gather stuff into the first pile tha

    Christian Carnival is up!
    Haven’t made it through all ~66 some posts yet, but early favorites include:

    Um, I have a question and an answer for you:
    The question: how does one “generally” stand for absolute unchanging truth? (an oxymoron if there ever was one)
    The answer: when it suits you.

  4. James S says:

    Eli,
    Go read the story again. The quote is “But Christian Conservatives generally stand for absolute unchanging truth.” What this means is that most Christian conservatives stand for absolute truth. In other words, some that call themselves Christian conservatives do not stand for absolute true.
    The original quote was looking at a large group and your comment was discussing a particular “one”.
    If you were not just being argumentative I sure you would have been able to see that.
    Read more carefully next time.
    James S.

  5. eli says:

    So sometimes some conservatve Christians do not stand for absolute truth. They sound just like, yes, folks, they sound just like — you got it, liberals! Hence, Wayne’s thesis is kaput, and World Net Dailys’ daily round of highly partisan junk is seen through again. Thank you, James, for your careful reading.

    Christian Carnival & Tangled Bank

    I decided to try something new and submitted posts to a couple of the blog carnivals this week, and two of the carnivals are up now. One of my submissions went to the Christian Carnival, whose host this week broke the submitted posts into categories…

  7. I agree with all of this, except for the inclusion of the word “conservative”. Why not just “Christian”- to encompass the many faith-based activists who have deeply principled positions on many issues that find them in favour of same-sex unions, against war, against the death penalty, in favour of the redistribution of wealth under progressive government programs. I know a number of committed christians who have been jailed for their faith-inspired efforts to disable military hardware. They have reached their beliefs through bible study and prayer, as followers of Christ.

  8. Wayne M says:

    Thanks for the comments.
    The reason I include the word “conservative” is because there are many liberals that call themselves Christians. Some are indeed Christian most are not. (Wow and I going to get myself into trouble now). The reason that I can say that they are not is because they would disagree what is clearly taught in scripture and they disagree with the basic tenants of Orthodox Christianity.
    I am attempting to be as concise as possible. It is the engineer in me.

  9. Dude, you are so far off the mark. Call yourself what you like, but your comment flies in the face of all non-fundamentalist theologians in the world, including the current Pope. But you already knew that, right?

  10. jboy says:

    Yes, I can very easily imagine John F. Kennedy supporting same sex marriages, just not in the 1960’s. Personally, I think where America went off the rails was when it fell for the fake idealism of the Kennedy brothers.
    Question: weren’t a lot of the sex scandals that are coming to light in the Archdiocese of Boston going on under the tenure of John Cardinal cushing? The spiritual mentor of the Kennedys?
    Was JFK really ever even elected, or did the Daly machine and the mob steal the Presidency for him? How come nobody but the NEw York Herald Tribune had the gongolez to pursure the story ( until Nixon asked them to back off because he would not want the Presidency under those terms?
    Are you old enough to remember that there was never any concerted complaints against J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI until the Kennedys got in office? What were they afraid he knew that they had to discredit him beforehand?

  11. qandablogger says:

    Very interesting….
    I was born just before JFK was shot, so no, I do not remember but I have read such ideas.

  12. Rick Watson says:

    Dear sirs:
    You have a lot of good points and I agree with most of them, however I would ask you to pay closer attention to grammar and syntax. These kind of errors, although not essential to your points, can take away from the professional presentation I know you want to achieve. Below are a couple I noticed.
    Weather (whether) it leads to debauchery and destruction or not
    the list goes one and one (on and on).

  13. Robert says:

    Unchanging absolute truth. Thats not an Oxymoron. Where is the contradiction?

  14. AJ says:

    Wow, your all a bunch of whackjobs! Your article was filled with sweeping generalizations. I hope you dont construct your engineering projects like you construct your articles. God! What a mess that would be. Also, Abraham Lincoln thought that african americans were inferior to whites (despite having freed the slaves)… do you think he would still think that way, if he were alive in 2008? Of course not! You guys wouldnt know a critical thought if it broad sided you right in your ugly faces. As a final plea…please dont reproduce! For the good of society! FOR THE GOOD OF THE UNIVERSE!

  15. Jim Smith says:

    Thank you for your insightful comment AJ… Look how open minded the left is… wow..

  16. Dot says:

    I have family members that are liberals. They have no morals they hate fat people food and god and America.When A liberal don’t like the facts they attack you with spelling or something like that. Oh and liberals favorite comment about any moral issue like teen pregnancy. Is “Well they will do it any way” Liberals make me sick!

  17. Bob says:

    What if Zeus was the main object of worship? What if Zeus followers wrote morning cartoon shows and held summer camps to brainwash your children into believing in Zeus? What if they wanted to force you to start slaughtering sheep on altars? What if they wanted you to pray to static electricity that decends from clouds before they would allow you to hold political office or start a school board meeting? What if they made lightening rods illegal? Wouldn’t you hate to see them in politics?

  18. Jim Smith says:

    Bob,
    What if they built a great society, what if they built great schools, and hospitals and libraries… and great cultural institutions
    What if they were the most generous, gracious, compassionate people on earth…
    Which in fact Christians have been proven to be…
    Then what????

  19. someone says:

    If you are confused why liberals think the ways they think, please read the bible: Look it up for yourself.
    Ecclesiastes 10:2
    A wise man’s heart directs him toward the right, but the foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left.

  20. Edwin says:

    What about other people and their deeply principled positions on many issues? Jesus emphasized devotion to God and caring for one’s neighbor. He would not care for the politicalization of scripture, nor his words and deeds.

    I’m a graduate student doing political psychology research on this exact topic. If anyone would like to contribute to the research, it would be much appreciated. My contact and informed consent info are on the first page after you follow the link. http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22AGKARWP9N

  22. Robert H. Smith says:

    The political terms ‘left and ‘right’ didn’t appear until 1789 during the French Revolution where supporters of the King sat on his right and those opposed sat on his left. So using the passage from Ecclesiastes to support the right and put down the left is just foolish and embarrassing to those of us who chose to represent the ‘right’ with class and intelligence. For those that care ‘left’ was ‘sinister’ in Latin so the passage means ‘do good, not evil’.

  23. I don’t really “hate anyone. That is a very strong emotion I reserve for the very, very few who desrve it. It does however serve the best interests of the TPTB. If we could unite, in spite of our differences, think what a positive force we could be.

  24. Wayne M says:

    Actually I would recommend that we focus on our similarities and shared values.
    In general that would be a much better option.

  25. Art Store House says:
