Conservatives and conservative Christians are not finding a lot of support these days from public opinion, at least as it is presented in America’s news media. I was directed to this 2012 post from Pastor Doug Wilson’s blog that urges a bit of defiance. Wilson says,
The problem with conservatives is that they have not yet fully reconciled to the fact that these courts of public opinion are corrupt and utterly rigged.
He notes that if Christians never say anything that their scheming opponents can label as objectionable, the message is not getting through:
The devil accuses the brethren day and night, remember, and if you are never accused of anything, then perhaps it is time for a little spiritual inventory. And if you inquire into the reasons why the devil never shoots at you, you might come up with the reasonable answer that you never shoot at him.
