This blog is maintained by the Ruth Institute. It provides a place for our Circle of Experts to express themselves. This is where the scholars, experts, students and followers of the Ruth Institute engage in constructive dialogue about the issues surrounding the Sexual Revolution. We discuss public policy, social practices, legal doctrines and much more.
Donald Trump is our next president. What does this mean for Christian conservatives?
On the plus side:
Above all, Americans acted like Americans. We refused to let ourselves be manipulated by the people in power. We took our privilege of self-government seriously. We rejected apathy, cynicism and political correctness.
For all Donald Trump’s flaws, he loves America. He treats Christians with respect. He is pro-life.
But: we must keep an eye on him.
Above all, if he does something he ought not do, we must call him out. We brought him to this party: he needs to dance with us.
Civic responsibility is not a spectator sport. No more watching election returns, and then doing nothing until the next election.
We cannot continue:
Each of us must take responsibility for building a culture of life and love.
When we participate in the Sexual Revolution, we begin to lose our minds. We become defensive about our actions, which we know in our hearts are indefensible. And we become easier to manipulate and control.
The Ruth Institute congratulates Donald Trump and Mike Pence. We remind them that America is great because America is good. When America ceases to good, it will cease to be great.
Let’s make America good again.
