Last night, I spoke at the Hunt GOP Club...and everyone actually stayed in their seats!
I spoke about how Christian conservatives can influence the next twenty years. I tried to describe what I thought it was a Christian conservative like me has to offer my party, the Republican Party. I laid out five points, what I called character positions. Here is an excerpt (I post more over the next few days):
CHARACTER POSITION NUMBER ONE: Quit trying to split our leadership into born again and “moderate.”
This is a strange attitude I’ve encountered here in the state party ever since I moved back to Texas. For reasons I don’t understand, many of us who are motivated by faith have decided that not only must who we support for office and party leadership be born again, if they’re not born again, they are “moderate.” I know I’m guilty of this. Friends, this has got to stop. We all should have confidence in our leaders’ principles based on their commitment to our party platform, not our faith tradition.
