I hate it when people intentionally misunderstand in order to cause dissention. For example, I defended a friend and co-worker’s right to marry a woman who is not the same race as he is. A second student took offense at my question of, “Why is that a problem?” The second child’s parent raised quite a stink. I was disciplined. Why must I stifle my opinions simply because not everyone shares my viewpoint? I ask you, “Is there anything wrong with people of two different races marrying?” I can find no Biblical instruction about marrying outside your race. I found, “Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness?” Nothing there about red and yellow, black and white. (We are all still precious in His sight.)
Don’t vote for Hillary because she’s a woman. If you want to vote for her because you like her political views, that’s awesome. Vote your heart, not her gender.
Don’t vote for Donald because he’s a man. If you want to vote for him because you like his political views, that’s awesome. Vote your heart, not his gender.
Never vote for anyone based on a demographic variable that they neither chose nor have the power to change. Vote for him/her because you believe his/her viewpoint is good for humanity, or for Christianity, or for America. Vote. Your. Heart.
