Doug Phillips on political candidates...

Nice concise statement from Doug Phillips on evaluating candidates for office...
"The biblical principle for evaluating candidate responses on specific issues is that we are not to be respecters of persons. This means that we evaluate specific statements and public positions objectively, not emotionally. We do not allow loyalties to cloud our judgment. We treat all men fairly, kindly and with the same standard. This does not necessarily diminish from our appreciation or disregard for them as candidates. It means that when Democrats do well we say so, and when Republicans do not, we say so as well. It means that the standard transcends the individual. Only then can we be faithful and honest as citizens of Heaven first, and the United States second."
