On January 24, 2016 I heard the political commentators on CNN talking about which of the candidates for the Republican nomination for President would win the “Evangelical Voting Bloc.” I started this blog post that night, but I have not been able to let go of it and move on.
It’s now September 5, 2016, and for 8 months my thinking has been consumed with the thought of what the current election is doing to the Evangelical church. I’ve rewritten that first post and am attaching what I hope is my final draft. I started Meanderings in 2009 as place to process my own “random thoughts” so now I would welcome yours!
I’m taking a risk with this one because I’ve been told that I should never talk about either religion or politics in public. This one does both. I feel like I need to publish it anyway because, as they say, “It’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.” I simply need to tell it – once and for all.
I submitted it to a blog on Patheos.com called Unfundamentalist Christians and it was published on September 26, the night of Trump’s first debate with Hillary Clinton.
