I saw this post from John Piper this morning on the Desiring God blog. As usual, he distills the issue to its basic elements very quickly.
Tea Party Prevarication
March 14, 2010 | By: John Piper | Category: Commentary
According to the New York Times “The Tea Party leaders . . . deliberately avoid discussion of issues like . . . abortion. . . . [They] argue that the country can ill afford the discussion about social issues when it is passing on enormous debts to future generations.”
Let me see if I understand this term “ill afford”.
Is this it? Enormous debt will hurt our children and grandchildren. Therefore don’t talk about the lawfulness of whether they can be killed.
