Should you be politically correct about Roe vs. Wade if you disagree with the Supreme Court Decision?
I read two posts about the wisdom of standing up for religious beliefs.
One is a contemporary opinion titled, Reclaiming the Republic: A Book Review Part 5, which focused on the subjects of taxpayers paying to support abortion and the Supreme Court Roe vs Wade being based on Rights.
The second post titled, Called to Live in Freedom, relates to early Christian history statement that “successful orators will not be tempted to cancel their convictions in order to gain popularity in hopes of winning even higher honors. Likewise, unsuccessful speakers will not be lured into saying something they don’t mean just to win over the crowd.”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate King Solomon wisdom advice for voters to consider about personal religious beliefs and our choices of political leaders being politically correct same as what apparently was an issue 3000 years ago.
Ecclesiastes 8 New International Version (NIV) Chapter Eight
Who is like the wise?
Who knows the explanation of things?
A person’s wisdom brightens their face
and changes its hard appearance.
2 Obey the king’s command, I say, because you took an oath before God.3 Do not be in a hurry to leave the king’s presence. Do not stand up for a bad cause, for he will do whatever he pleases. 4 Since a king’s word is supreme, who can say to him, “What are you doing?”
5 Whoever obeys his command will come to no harm,
and the wise heart will know the proper time and procedure.
6 For there is a proper time and procedure for every matter,
though a person may be weighed down by misery.
What’s My Point?
I highly recommend you read both blog postings to help you decide the issues of abortion and the political leaders you will vote for in the next election.
In My Opinion
The basic issue of the Rights of Abortion as being a Constitutional Right ‘on demand’ is basically a “bad cause” to stand up for.
Freedom to choose political leaders to represent your religious and personal views is both a Right and a “good cause” to stand up for, even “though a person may be weighed down by misery.”
Read the two blog posts in the Source Links Below and Previous Posts.
Is being politically correct sometimes the same as standing up for a bad cause or cowering?
Who and what causes will you stand up when you vote in 2020?
