How to be a Good Christian and Good Libertarian
- Remember that while yes, your values are important and you shouldn’t forsake them, others literally don’t believe it. For us it’s Gravity=9.8m/s/s but for them it’s Santa Claus creation mythology. So be patient with them.
- Imagine the “violation” not as an ethics issue, but a values topic. I.e. speeding. We don’t demand to know how many tickets a person has. We wouldn’t abstain to welcome a lost soul into our home because of a speeding ticket. We don’t think someone’s intrinsically bad. Nor would you feel a person who died as a result of speeding got what they deserved. We recognize we don’t agree with it, but we don’t judge, as Christ said.
- If you’re libertarian, you feel that regulation is the responsibility of the individual. Much like God gave us the free will to take the fruit in the Garden of Eden, we cannot try to force people to not sin. Nor are we the judge and jury on whether someone is going to hell. So removing regulation on something doesn’t condone that activity. Nor does it mean they will necessarily sin. Most Germans treat the Autobahn like a regular highway- not a racetrack.
- Remember that church and state must remain apart. While most of the forefathers were Christian, they themselves mandated this separation. I think the victory formation in football is fucking stupid and is a chicken shit way to ruin the spirit of competition. But it’s not against the rules. And I can’t exactly think of a PRACTICAL reason other than my beliefs that it should be removed or banned. Therefore, it shall remain. And I can disagree all I want. Remember our laws are the 10 commandments. And earthly law is of this earth and only needs to meet the perquisites of providing, furthering, or protecting life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Hope this helps. May God bless yall and Jojo be always in your hearts.
