A few weeks ago I linked to R C Sproul’s article on Principled Voting and received the following question, which I received permission to post on the blog:
I get the reasoning of “every vote is a vote for the lesser of two evils” (as someone put it), but I also have a really hard time reconciling in my conscience some of the issues related to a certain candidate. While there is a choice I absolutely will not support, I hesitate about voting against him because I feel like I am giving my support to an individual I cannot endorse. For this reason I’ve voted Constitution party at least once in the past, but have also second-guessed that decision. What kind of combination of principles, integrity, realism, and pragmatism is appropriate, given the nature of our political system in the US?”
I’m sure there are lots of Christians in a similar dilemma. Anyone got any advice? Any good resources you can recommend?
