Christian voters aren’t responsible for Trump’s Tweets

David French holds to an odd political theology. He thinks Christians are responsible for every single personal foible of a politician. A vote for a politician is a total moral endorsement for that politician—at least in French’s mixed up moral view. What nonsense!

A voter is responsible for the President’s policies, not what the President does in the President’s spare time on Twitter. In other words, his personal virtue and/or sinfulness matters, but it matters a great deal less in an election than the President’s policies.

A Christian’s vote should be judged on the virtue or sinfulness of the politician’s policies.
