If Only It Were That Clear

By Mark D. Roberts | Wednesday, December 17, 2008

Here’s the next installment in my unusual bumper sticker series. This one expresses a sentiment felt by many Americans. . . .

I’d say Amen to that, except, as a Presbyterian, I don’t say Amen to things.

But I do wonder what it really means to “Vote the Bible.” I think this is much easier said than done. Tomorrow I’ll explain why I think this is much harder than it seems.

    Can I take my Bible into the voting booth and use it as my “voter guide?”

    Presbyterians don’t use the word “Amen”? Why not?

    Joshua: I meant that as a bit of a joke. Presbyterians say “Amen” at the end of our prayers. But we don’t tend to shout out “Amen” in the way of our more expressive brothers and sisters (Baptists, Pentecostals, etc.). We’re a little less fun and freed up than that.


Thanks for your willingness to make a comment. Note: I do not moderate comments before they are posted, though they are automatically screened for profanities, spam, etc., and sometimes the screening program holds comments for moderation even though they're not offensive. I encourage open dialogue and serious disagreement, and am always willing to learn from my mistakes. I will not delete comments unless they are extraordinarily rude or irrelevant to the topic at hand. You do need to login in order to make a comment, because this cuts down on spam. You are free to use a nickname if you wish. Finally, I will eventually read all comments, but I don't have the time to respond to them on a consistent basis because I've got a few other demands on my time, like my "day job," my family, sleep, etc.
