Catholics aren't the only ones with a cafeteria

This piece at Hotair really struck me:

The elec­tion is over and so is Brandi Miller’s reli­gious affiliation.

“On Nov. 8, white evan­gel­i­cal Chris­tian­ity and I called it quits,” she wrote in a mes­sage posted on Face­book. Ms. Miller, a cam­pus min­is­ter at the Uni­ver­sity of Ore­gon, says that exit polls show­ing that 81% of white evan­gel­i­cals voted for Don­ald Trump revealed a divide over race that she, as a bira­cial woman, can’t condone.

“Evan­gel­i­cals have decided who and with what they will asso­ciate,” wrote Ms. Miller, 26 years old, in an online mag­a­zine and on Face­book. “It’s not me.”

As I men­tioned above, if you decide to drop out of your book club or the local bowl­ing league because you’re teamed up with some intol­er­a­ble idiot who voted for (insert name of can­di­date you didn’t vote for here), that’s prob­a­bly not the end of the world. But when peo­ple are walk­ing out on their house of wor­ship the country’s divi­sions have gone past the point of being toxic.

I think Jazz is miss­ing the most impor­tant aspect of this story, it’s not that lib­er­als con­tinue to melt down over Trump it’s that this per­son never had faith to begin with.

As I’ve said many times at this site the only rea­son to be a Chris­t­ian in gen­eral and a Catholic in par­tic­u­lar is because it’s true. If it’s not then Chris­tians are sim­ply an Elk’s club that meets on Sundays.

This per­son has appar­ently decided that her belief wasn’t in Christ but in some­thing else, thus it took very lit­tle effort to reject her faith-​based on a elec­toral mat­ter a faith that weak was likely not worth the effort to destroy.

Now of course she might go faith shop­ping to see if she can find a church that is polit­i­cally accept­able to her, in fact given the empty pews at most denom­i­na­tions that have aban­doned the tenets of Chris­tian­ity to please the world it might not be all that hard.

But my advice is for this lady and any other like her that are con­sid­er­ing aban­don­ing Christ over elec­tion results find them­selves a divine mercy chapel go inside and spend a holy hour pray­ing for dis­cern­ment, because in the end her soul like all souls, is a thing of great value that is worth saving.

I think Jazz is missing the most important aspect of this story, it’s not that liberals continue to melt down over Trump it’s that this person never had faith to begin with.

As I’ve said many times at this site the only reason to be a Christian in general and a Catholic in particular is because it’s true.  If it’s not then Christians are simply an Elk’s club that meets on Sundays.

This person has apparently decided that her belief wasn’t in Christ but in something else, thus it took very little effort to reject her faith-based on a electoral matter a faith that weak was likely not worth the effort to destroy.

But my advice is for this lady and any other like her that are considering abandoning Christ over election results find themselves a divine mercy chapel go inside and spend a holy hour praying for discernment, because in the end her soul like all souls, is a thing of great value that is worth saving.
