Some word on Christian and politics. Most Christians have the intuition that when it comes to political views we shouldn’t choose a position or support someone that’s extreme for extremists sake but I think we also should not be moderate for moderate sake alone either; sometimes moderates mean those who continually compromise on good principles so as to look middle of the road. More harmful policies has been caused by so called “moderate policies.” Picking a position merely because it’s in the middle of everything isn’t wise in other instances of life as the pictures demonstrate above so why do we do it when it comes to politics? We must also not forget that there is a leftward drift in our society and really things that are “moderate” today was what was liberal yesterday. Again I’m not advocating to be an extremists for the sake of being extreme: I think we should look for those who have sound economic, national and foreign policies and debate the merit of those policies rather than irrelevant attacks and personal attacks that occur too much today for cheap media sound bites. Ultimately for the Christian we must ask the question of what is Biblical.
The Goal of Christians isn’t to be extreme nor even moderate per se
