One Issue Voting

John Piper discussed one-issue politics way back in 1995. What he said then is still true today.

Excellent article by Piper, and I totally agree.

"What do you think disqualifies a person from holding public office? I believe that the endorsement of the right to kill unborn children disqualifies a person from any position of public office ...

These reflections have confirmed my conviction never to vote for a person who endorses such an evil—even if he could balance the budget tomorrow and end all taxation."


I completely agree. However, I'm not sure Philip would--I believe his position is:

"If there were two candidates who supported abortion to some degree, but one supported it less, I would vote for the lesser of two evils."

Stephen has represented my view accurately. It would be interesting to know how Piper comes down on that situation.
