I’m trying to decide from Biden’s actual governing what policies Biden-support groups – Never Trump writers, pious Democrat pastors, and Evangelicals for Biden, etc. – wanted. I remember these people were anxious during the election to tell everyone how concerned they were about Trump’s past sins, and his manner of speaking.
Here’s an article from The Federalist about their boy Biden:
Last week, legal accountability group Judicial Watch dropped a bombshell: a nearly 600-page report proving the U.S. government has been buying and trafficking “fresh” aborted baby body parts. These body parts, purchased by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to “humanize” mice and test biologic drugs in scientific experiments, came from babies up to 24-weeks-old gestation, just weeks from being born.
I’m pretty sure I remember one of those Never Trump people talking about how much they wanted the government to purchase sliced off parts of 24-week-old unborn babies. Maybe it was David French or Russell Moore or John Piper or Tim Keller? Or someone else… Anyway, did you know that 22-week-old unborn babies can survive outside the womb? Those were pretty developed unborn children. I can understand atheist abortion rights activists wanting policies like this. But I’m curious why Never Trump “conservatives” wanted it. Maybe they’re not conservative? And why did pious evangelicals for Biden want it? Maybe they’re neither pious nor evangelical.
Here’s another article from Daily Wire about more Biden policies:
President Joe Biden on Tuesday filed an appeal seeking to force doctors and hospitals to perform potentially harmful transgender-related procedures and surgeries even if they hold objections.
As outlined by BECKET Law’s Luke Goodrich, a court in January struck down the administration’s move to punish doctors who don’t perform transgender-related procedures for supposed “sex discrimination.” Biden on Tuesday officially appealed the ruling.
I’m pretty sure I remember one of those Never Trump people talking about how much they wanted to get their biological sex re-assigned for free by a Christian doctor. Maybe it was David French or Russell Moore or John Piper or Tim Keller? Or someone else… Anyway, did you know that Trump had opposed all these LGBT policies, and protected the conscience rights of Christian doctors? I knew that, because I was more concerned about policy than about virtue signaling my superior morals to people at church.
I noticed that Life News – a pro-life web site – is pretty upset about Biden’s policies so far.
Joe Biden is rapidly becoming the most pro-abortion president in U.S. history as he takes multiple actions to expand abortions and force taxpayers to subsidize them.
On Wednesday, the Biden administration released a rule that will force taxpayers to fund the abortion industry through the Title X family planning program.
The rule, issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, will end a pro-life regulation that President Donald Trump put in place to ensure Title X grants are not used to subsidize the killing of unborn babies in abortions.
Pro-life groups like Susan B. Anthony List and National Right to Life considered Trump to be the most pro-life president ever. I even wrote about all the specific actions, policies and nominations he did to help the pro-life cause. That’s the kind of article that our pious pastors and conservative leaders should have written, if they were serious about getting results instead of virtue-signaling. When it comes to politics, you have to look at the actions taken by the candidates – what did they achieve? – not their words.
Why Christian men supported a bad candidate
So why do we have so many “conservative” Never Trump people and “pious” evangelical pastors and leaders supporting policies like these Biden policies? These people aren’t stupid. They know perfectly well what Biden said he was going to do. They shouldn’t be surprised at what he’s doing. It’s the job of organizations like the Southern Baptist ERLC to know what policies affect religious liberty. It’s their job to know what policies affect the rights of unborn children. It’s their job to know what policies affect the conscience rights of Christian medical professionals. So what happened?
Well, I know a few Never Trump men, so let me tell you what happened to them. They are married to women who don’t know very much about law and policy. Those women often have non-STEM degrees, no private sector experience, and if they work at all, they work as teachers – especially of very young children. They’re not used to speaking about policy to adults, other than other teachers of small children in the faculty lounge. Teachers talk about how people look, how they talk, how mean they are. They talk about teacher pay, being nice to illegal immigrants, and making the government provide free stuff for irresponsible people. They are terrified of standing up to bad behaviors like having babies out of wedlock or same-sex marriage. They don’t like to make moral judgments – they’re “compassionate”. And they worry a lot about how they are perceived by non-Christians. They don’t want to be seen as “mean”.
So, at least for the men I know, what happened is that these low-information wives – who are all active in their churches with essential oils and self-help books and feelings-based Bible study guides – all convinced their “conservative” evangelical husbands to support Biden’s policies, because of Trump’s “mean” appearance and words. And the strong, tough “conservative” evangelical men went along with it. They wanted a peaceful home, available sex, and not sleeping on the couch more than they wanted conservative policies.
During an online game, I asked one of these men I was playing with which policies he considered the most important, as a conservative Christian. His reply? “Teacher pay and universal healthcare”. His wife was a teacher, and I’m pretty sure he got those priorities from her. Keep in mind that universal healthcare means taxpayer-funded abortions and sex-changes. That’s how it works in countries like Canada, that have a true single-payer health care system.
We need to be careful about appointing weak men as conservative, Christian leaders. If they can’t stand up to their own wives, what good are they as leaders?
