To Vote or Not to Vote: That is the QuestionBy
There is much discussion right now about what evangelicals should do this presidential election. Some beloved brothers and sisters argue that the two party political system has provided two “evil” or at least undesirable choices. Therefore, they ask, why should one have to vote for the lesser of two evils. This is a principled stance.
Other beloved brothers and sisters argue that not to vote is to vote for the greater of two evils, or at the very least not to stand up for, for example, the rights of the unborn.
In light of the fact that we evangelical are sometimes gullible and may be tempted to listen to fringe voices, I thought I would simply list a few links from more thoughtful persons representing the various positions.
