EvangelZ over at Domain for Truth used the following quote in a post about our 2016 presidential candidates and I think it was brilliant.
“Of two evils, choose neither.”
-Charles H. Spurgeon
I have thought about the 2016 presidential election quite a bit since who the nominees will be is all but settled and, I think, conservative Christians who believe they have a patriotic duty to vote should seriously consider staying home on election day on moral grounds.
That’s what I am doing.
In fact, the only way to make voting for the conservative-ish lesser of two evils candidate in this election seem reasonable at all is to explain such a vote like this.
There is a difference between getting in a car with an impulsive drunk driver and being doused in gasoline and set aflame by a psychopathic arsonist. The first is no pleasure, but it’s probably survivable. The latter is not.
I’ll get into the car, personally.
That doesn’t mean I think it’s a good thing to drive drunk, or that my previous warnings about drunk driving were baseless or feigned.
It just means I don’t want to be burned to death by Hillary Clinton.
