Standing your ground means you’re not advancing your agenda. Stand your ground long enough and you’re surrounded.
I’w with chesley. I vote against the Party of Satan every chance I get. Of course, that takes discernment.

Ummm..Satan doesn’t have a political party. And I won’t further Mormonism which is a demonic ‘church’.
I am a CHRISTIAN first, a CONSERVATIVE second, and a member of the Constitution party.
My faith is more important than politics. But thank you for proving CS Lewis’ insight correct.
Standing your ground means youre not advancing your agenda. Stand your ground long enough and youre surrounded.

Did early Christians cave? Did they say “oh we won’t stand for the truth, we will sacrifice to idols just to ‘get along’? NO. They died for their faith.
It is nonsense to say that because I won’t compromise I won’ further my agenda. People are won by debate and logic, if you compromise you let them win, because once you move from your principles and they see that, they will know you will KEEP Compromising. That is why the GOP has become so damn liberal that they nominated Liberal Romney.
Go ahead and compromise your values (if you have any), I will stand for truth.
Well, Mormons and Evangelicals had one thing in common per the Pew Forum exit polls...
And that is about 1 in 5 Mormons, and 1 in 5 white Evangelicals, voted for Obama.
(%-wise, there was actually more support for Romney by Evangelicals than Mormons! ... by 1%)
So...are we going to hear any lambasting of Obama-supporting Lds on this thread???
Of course voting does, and should, take discernment. We can't always be right.
For instance, in the election just past, the office of probate judge was up for grabs. The incumbent was a long-time Democrat, who actually is a fine man and a good probate judge. The opponent, a Dem turned Republican, is also a fine man, as near as I can tell.
My wife wanted me to vote for the Dem, although she was voting R on every other position. Namely because he was getting involved in a terrible situation at her (state) place of employment, and was working to make things better.
I thought long and hard about the choice. In the end, I could not vote for the Democrat. They need to be turned out at every opportunity, IMO.
Is this the right choice? Should we vote the Party or the Man? What about the right man in the wrong party? I suspect that it often depends of the circumstances and the times. In these times my thinking is to leave them no base of power.
But it was a tough choice.
