I’m center. I can’t stand the racism. But I can’t stand the extreme liberalism either. Kind of a hard spot to be right now.

I don’t believe “Conservative” equals Christian. Jesus told us to love our neighbor. Our current President spews nothing but hate. Jesus commanded us to defend the poor and the weak. Our current President loathes the poor and the weak. Jesus told us to turn the other cheek. Our current President lives to take an eye for an eye. My heart aches when I see people trying to put Jesus into such a small box as “conservative”.

Yeah... I feel you. Though I feel agencies are places where conservative ideas are bot often blasted out load for exactly the kind of shortcut this thread implies: « Christian » = red
I’m Christian, full-on. And trust me, I wouldn’t consider myself a conservative...

Same. I’m a devout Christian and my coworkers know that about me. They also know I’m a socialist.
