In this upcoming election, the most startling division to me has not been the one among Democrats and Republicans but among Republicans alone. It seems that the focus of issues has broadened. People are more interested in a broader scope of arguments, instead of the long time party dividing issues of abortion, homosexuality, and the death penalty.
I heard the most FASCINATING description of why this is so on The Bible Answer Man with Hank Hanegraaff.
He talks about "Fetal Fatigue" and how the younger generations are tired of the abortion issue. How they have basically never dealt with an illegal abortion in their lifetime, and do not see it as an issue that is worthy of choosing a candidate over.
I implore you to listen to the first few minutes of Hank's radio program, where he talks about this in far more detail. Especially if you are someone who was not planning on voting based on the abortion debate. It was absolutely intriguing and enticing and a must listen.
Just click on the format (in the upper middle of your screen) that best suits your PC to listen to this thought provoking and compelling commentary.
And please, let me know what you thought of Hanks words and if it changes anything in your mind.
