I hate being put in a box.
It's really hard to breathe.
And there's not much sunlight.
And it's very stuffy....
But it happened again, tonight.
ABC News, once again, put ALL of us "evangelical Christians" in a big box.... apparently we can all STILL be painted with the same paintbrush.
I guess they don't realize that we Christians are a motley bunch. We're all different races, temperaments, backgrounds, political affiliations, etc. In fact, the one and ONLY thing that holds us together is our faith in Jesus. Many of us voted for Obama and are pleased that he won. (The latest estimates I read were that 40% of evangelical Christians voted for Obama....)
I guess the media simply can't grasp that not ALL of us have "W" stickers on the back of our minivans (actually, I don't drive a minivan....) and I sure as heck don't have a "W" sticker on the back of my car. Sorry to disappoint.
I read a great blog post a bit earlier today written by a Christian about why he chose Obama after voting Republican for many years. It really hit home with me.
Here's the link....
Whew.... it feels good to be out of that box.
