FACT Report: Can Pragmatists Deal with Roy Moore?

Some opposed Judge Roy Moore in Alabama’s Republican Primary for the U.S. Senate because he wasn’t “pragmatic” and wouldn’t be able to “get things done.”

But not being a pragmatist is a good thing. Pragmatism is actually a worldview that says there are no transcendent truths to guide our decisions, so we just go with “what works” or, more accurately, what seems to work. That is what is “true.” But Judge Moore believes there is a Creator God and that the Scriptures give us real truth about the nature of things, why they are the way they are, and what we need to do to improve things.

That’s why pragmatists who actually understand the difference between their worldview and Judge Moore’s come after him. They just don’t know how to deal with those who aren’t pragmatic.

The FACT Report, featured on several conservative radio stations, is a weekly one-minute audio commentary about a political or cultural issue affecting Tennesseans.
