Election Day 2014
On this election day, November 4, 2014, I was faced with a moral dilemma rather different from anything I've ever dealt with.
I mean, elections haven't really been pleasant for a long while. It's pretty much been a case of voting for the least offensive candidate. But this time...it was especially difficult.
As a professing Christian, I cannot, cannot vote for any candidate from the party that loudly and emphatically booed God at their national convention.
And yet, how can I in good conscience vote for a candidate who willfully and knowingly violated several counts of state law to secure his party's nomination?
It was a truly agonizing decision. But one day last week, I was reminded that the lesser of two evils is still the lesser of two evils.
And so, I hitch up my britches and head to the polls, where I will hold my nose and vote for the one I consider to be
the lesser of two evils.
