What’s your political purity test and would you pass the tests of others? | #TastyTuesday Fair food!
What’s you’re personal political purity test? Senator Josh Hawley made news by announcing he would only vote to confirm a Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court who stated in advance that Roe v. Wade was wrongly decided. That’s called a litmus test. Democrats have them too – in the other direction. What’s yours? The reason I ask is this: many of us would not pass the purity tests of others and when it comes to our jobs we often think its unfair for political purity tests to be applied. Case in point: all the people who think their bosses should be fired because they support (sometimes financially) a candidate the employee(s) don’t like. Think I’m kidding? Read this.
One-issue-voting and political purity tests are doors that swing on a hinge in both directions. They also stifle conversation and shut down discourse. They’re actually designed to do so.
I talk today with Dr. Mark Caleb Smith from Cedarville University about the subject – and about the restart of the MLB season.
Then, in the second half, I satisfy your craving for Fair Food with the Minnesota State Fair staple, Pronto Pups’ owner, Greg Karnes. Yes, well, it is TastyTuesday so let us Taste and See that the Lord is Good!
