A common theme of some Christians when they engage in U. S. politics is to say, “Christans are the majority.” And, so there should be prayer in schools, Ten Commandments in the town square and so on.
The Christian brand is on other political ideas. Just now it is Iran. Bombing Iran is popular with the Christian Republican Presidential candidates.
This past weekend, Mike Huckabee said Ron Paul’s position of leaving Iran alone was not the position of the “mainstream”. Thus, he should not be the Republican nominee.
It doesn’t seem to be important to Huckabee whether Paul’s position is right or not, it just matters that Christians are the majority, the mainstream. Political Christians like Huckabee should recognize Christians may not always be the majority, and, it might be wise to be establish that minority views have a place at the table in case they are, one day, the minority.
Of course, the U. S. Christian view that the majority should have its way changes when Christians actually are in the minority, as they are in other countries. In various countries just now, innocent Christians are being killed in an effort to eliminate them. U. S. Christians are expressing outrage against those majorities.
Politically minded Christians would be wise to recognize they have been in the majority for a relatively short time in the long history of humans. Their time as a minority could come again one day.
