In that, I agree. However, that does not mean that we should be like the dumbocraps by saying one thing during the campaign and then doing something else afterwards. The protection of life should NEVER be hidden away under a basket! Let’s put slavery into the same scenario. It doesn’t work because the evil of slavery is so blatantly obvious. To try to water it down, quiet it down, is an affront to everything truthful and good. You can’t say publicly, “Well, I personally own some slaves and see nothing wrong with it. Let’s regulate it, though.” And then once in office, legislate against it! It is a total contradiction.
Also, let’s remember what God says about lukewarmness: “But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.” (Apoc. 3:16)
And, our Lord Jesus also reminds us: “But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven.” (Matt. 10:33)
