Howard Snyder and “How We Vote”

 

Howard Snyder

This post by Howard Snyder, who has many connections to Asbury, is a pretty good representation of centrist evangelical thought. He argues that one issue should not trump all others, that a consistent-life ethic should animate evangelical politics, and that climate change is perhaps the most critical issue facing voters. After criticizing libertarians, Republicans, and Democrats he makes this point:

Many of us would happier with a more multi-party system where not every issue gets caught in no-win gridlock. The founders of the U.S. political system envisioned open debate and common-good compromise, not what we have now.
