Rather than shaping and framing the deeply moral and personal questions around how our nation and individuals should respond to threats and cope with fear, Christians are increasingly allowing ourselves to be defined by political tribalism and adopting the secular rhetoric and worldview of one side or the other to explain what we believe and why.
It's not because he was born the night of a blood moon or has more connections to 666 than he does to Kevin Bacon that makes Trump Anti-Christ. Trumps' spirit of fear and emptiness is what should concern Christians.
I supported Hillary Clinton, and for the first time in my political life argued that Christians could not morally justify voting for one of the candidates. That candidate will now be our next President.
I'm voting for Hillary because I've witnessed her faith in action first hand, because of her life of service dedicated to those Christ focused his attention on, and because — not in spite — of her emails.
Ryan Bomberger's reply to my call for reason and an honest look at the facts around abortion highlights precisely why such an approach is necessary.

Last week, Russian hackers released private emails between John Halpin and Jennifer Palmieri (both of whom are Catholic) from when they worked at the Center for American Progress.
