In these 2 weeks my goal is to break down as simply as possible why many in Christians in general vote for either of the two major parties in elections.

Christians who are staunchly Democratic may wonder why someone who shares the same beliefs, values, and worldview would dare vote for a Republican. Christians who are neither of these may wonder the same about either. Continue reading →

It is a lie to say “they” hate us for our freedom. The US is committing war crimes against humanity. The Pentagon harbors terrorists. Who’s going to invade us?
