There is present in the arguments for Trump a fatalism, an assent to the liberal view of government: a belief that this election and retention of the office of the presidency is all that matters, that it is our best hope for salvaging what is left of Christian culture and law. But this is untrue. The presidency is but one office in our republican government. The president is not yet our King. There are other avenues for enacting good law. There will be other elections, there will be other presidents. By abstaining from voting for the office of the president, I will be able to stand before my fellow countrymen and say with total honesty that I rejected the evil choice with which I was presented in the year 2016.
I encourage all fellow Christians, and men and women of good will, to do the same.
