Carefully Research Political Endorsements

When former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee endorsed Randy Boyd for governor, he said to be wary of attacks made against him by “politicians.” But the same holds true for a politician’s endorsement of a candidate, particularly when that politician lives out of state.

Often out-of-state politicians endorse candidates without knowing all they should know. For example, Huckabee, a strong advocate for the traditional family and religious liberty, probably didn’t know that Boyd’s primary business is a member of the LGBT advocacy group Tennessee Thrives that is in lockstep with Tennessee’s version of the Human Rights Campaign. And Huckabee probably didn’t know that Boyd’s restaurant in Knoxville hosted an LGBT “Pride Day” event in June.

So, be wary of politicians bearing endorsements—they may not have known or valued the things you think important to your vote.

Off to the Races

Early voting starts Friday for the August 2nd election. Sadly, too many voters skip this election cycle, waiting until the November election to cast their ballot. This is a terrible mistake.

Beginning this Friday and running through July 28, voters will decide who will run their local county government. These officials decide important things like property tax issues, school funding, and zoning matters. They’ll run the local jail and dispense justice at the courthouse.

But at the state level, where most legislative districts are drawn to ensure only a Democrat can win or only a Republican can win, the odds are your state legislator will be decided by August.

And with contested Democratic and Republican primaries for governor, why let other people limit who you can vote for in November?

So, make sure you vote this election cycle.

Thy Liberty in Law

This week, as we celebrate our independence from England, we would do well to consider the oft-forgotten last stanza of “America the Beautiful”:

America, America, God mend thine every flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control, Thy liberty in law.

What the context makes clear is that liberty does not mean doing whatever we like; it is a liberty bound by law.

But the context also makes it clear that the law that binds our liberty must be understood in relationship to God. In other words, liberty must be within the bounds of God’s law because any other source of law would not produce self-control—we would just change the “law” to suit the degree of self-control we are willing to tolerate.

So, as we celebrate our liberty, let’s remember that real liberty and God’s law go hand in hand.

What’s So Great About Human Autonomy?

Many secular conservatives think returning to a belief in a sovereign God would be like returning to the dark ages. But let’s consider the facts.

Christianity, like all other belief systems, had to mature as Christians came to better understand the Scriptures. Then they had to mature in their understanding of how the Scriptures applied to our constantly changing world.

No doubt, Christians have zigged and zagged during this process and even made some horrible mistakes.

But don’t forget that belief in human autonomy and human reason has a history, too. It produced leaders like Stalin and Mao Zedong, who killed millions in applying their god-less philosophies.

So, it’s not that building a culture on a belief in a sovereign God has been tried and found wanting; it’s been found contrary to our desire for autonomy and rejected.
