I am surprised—although I really shouldn’t be—at the frenzy of support for Governor Palin in the evangelical community. So far I’ve only found one voice (Voddie Baucham) who is taking a genuinely biblical look, even Al Mohler who I respect greatly is quite disappointing in his response. From Mr. Baucham’s comments:
Unfortunately, Christians appear to be headed toward a hairpin turn at breakneck speed without the slightest clue as to the danger ahead. I don’t see this as a pro-family pick at all! Moreover, I believe the conservative fervor over this pick shows how politicized Christians have become at the expense of maintaining a prophetic voice. I believe that Mr. McCain has proven with his VP pick that he is pro-victory, not pro-family. In fact, I believe this was the anti-family pick. I say that for at least two reasons.
Leave it to one voice to ask the question, “but what about her family?”
Speaking of Mr. Mohler, this is a man who is normally relentlessly biblical, but he cannot bring himself to ponder the choice of a woman with 5 kids (three fairly young) taking a job as Vice President in light of Titus 2.3-5. Sad.
