For a month now, the Christian-conservative-non secular proper has been reeling from the outcome of the 2012 elections like a boxer dazzling below the impact of a near knockout blow. While some are vowing to return to the hoop with renewed fervor, others are in a funk, despairing the final results of the election. The bizarre reality of the matter is that despite the emotional trauma suffered by means of conservatives, the 2012 elections failed to honestly alternate something. We have the same President, the equal party still controls the U.S. House of Representatives and the same birthday celebration is in control inside the Senate. Even the party manipulate of country governorships most effective changed by means of one country. So if not anything has changed, why the despair?
I agree with the real tale of the 2012 elections isn’t always the final results registered at the ballot field on November 6, however rather the evidencing of the actual nation of the Christian-conservative-spiritual right. Perhaps the melancholy being expressed is the end result of a subconscious awareness as to the religious condition of the spiritual proper – a situation this is causing the spirit of some to cry out “Ichabod” (no glory) sensing that “The glory is departed” from the political institutions and movements wherein the Christian-conservative-spiritual right has for goodbye trusted.
I had been politically energetic as a Christian and a Constitutionist for approximately decades now. I’ve served in leadership capacities, headed up events and sports, assisted in campaigns and served as chairman of a political party. I’ve crossed paths with maximum of these in my community who could be categorized “conservative” and am in my opinion familiar with almost all of the seriously Christian and Constitutional political activists inside the area. Though not every person in the ones circles has supported all of my political activities (usually because of my activism being of a typically 0.33 celebration and impartial nature), but nearly all have agreed as to the primary values and indicated that we are all a part of the equal group working toward the same purpose of honoring God, restoring Constitutional governance, maintaining liberty and upholding the philosophical ideals of America’s founders.
Though there have always been a few differences of approach inside our ranks, I’ve continually had the experience of being surrounded by compatriots who were marching toward the same popular house in Bali purpose. However, sometime in July of this yr, I determined myself with a feel that some thing had changed. It become as though I was nonetheless walking the same race, but most of the people that I notion I changed into strolling the race with had disappeared – like they had taken a distinct turn in the road and I changed into now walking the direction alone.
I could have notion that it changed into just my imagination, the end result of warfare fatigue, or a mild case of discouragement, had it not been for my nation’s August number one election. That election found out the actual country of the Christian-conservative-religious proper and documented its departure from the values that it had so long espoused. In that election, conservatives rejected nearly each God honoring, Constitution upholding, liberty loving candidate on the ballot in preference of secularist, humanist, socialist and even pro-sodomite applicants.
Now being in general engaged in 1/3 birthday party and unbiased politics, I’m accustomed to having my candidates rejected by a populace that is, in my opinion, illogically locked in to a two party paradigm. However, in this example it changed into openly God honoring, Constitution upholding, liberty loving Republican applicants who had been rejected proper down the road. Remember, this become now not the general election in which we simply have a “D” verses an “R” and those seeking to choose the higher of the 2, or where we will blame “liberals” for the outcome. This became the number one election in which the Christian-conservative-spiritual right (which usually pals with the Republican Party) chooses the candidates that first-rate reflect their very own values and who they need to be represented by inside the standard election.
