As a Christian, I believe that Jesus Christ is the answer- Jesus ALONE, and NEITHER *conservative* nor *liberal* economics and politics. Acting as a follower of Jesus necessarily has "political/economic" dimensions- that means, I will act and voice opposition to abortion and same sex marriage; but it also means that I will oppose greed and the idolatry of wealth/money of this country that is resulting in the destruction of the creation (the *environment*) that sustains ALL life. It means I will strongly oppose private property as an absolute right, and care for the poor and the creation that sustains us as *optional*. It means that I will support secular communal (government) programs to care for the poor and protect creation- yet oppose government control and ownership as "the answer". No politician/party/ideology agrees with the whole of Christ's teachings, so "least worst alternative" choices must be made. While I agree with much of what you say, I do not believe for all your brilliance you have yet to fully understand, Dr. Brown, Jesus Christ ALONE, and neither conservative/liberal-political/economic idol-ology.
