Is Carly Fiorina a 'Christian'? Some Things to Consider...
Is Carly Fiorina a Christian? Short answer...probably? She was born Episcopalian and believes “What you are is God’s gift to you and what you make of yourself is your gift to God.” She is also pro-life, and hasn't exactly stayed quiet about Planned Parenthood. Whether or not she sleeps in on Sundays or goes to church is unclear.
But anyone can say they're Christian. Exhibit A: President Obama has said he's a Christian...LOL at that.
Here's something promising from Carly. She believes People of Faith make better leaders:
“People of faith, I believe, make better leaders. Faith gives us humility. Humility is really important in a leader because it’s humility that causes a leader to say sometimes ‘I must be restrained. ... Sometimes I need to seek wisdom and counsel from others, perhaps, for example, citizens of this great nation.’ ”
"I will always welcome people of every faith to remember that each of us are equal in the eyes of God, and all of us need wisdom from a higher source at some point in our lives."
You'll never know if someone will govern as a Christian until they do. But it comes down to the whole "fruit of the tree" deal, right? Unless that fruit happens to be grapefruit. Grapefruit is indicative of Satan. Always Satan.
The macro-point here is that nearly every GOP candidate will try to play up their faith for the primary, and then play it down in a general. They want to be seen as religious but not too religious, so it's tough to get an accurate read. With that in mind, don't rely on talking points regurgitated any particular day. Take a long look at a candidate's history, their record, their actions, and make a decision.
Judging on someone's entire record and character, not just their quotes of the day, goes for all the agnostic/atheist readers out there as well. Because really, why would you trust a candidate who claims to be a Christian when they're clearly not? (There's another term for that: liar) If they can't be genuine about a belief one way or another, then everything else is a facade.
