I have my qualms about McCain, and the biggest ones aren’t about his political ideology, though I am opposed to federal funding of embryonic stem cell research – people are not instruments for other people to use “for the good”. No, the biggest concern is not his ideological shakiness in some areas. It is his marriage.
As my mother says, yes, he’s done a lot of admirable things and has a great deal of fortitude (HT: Justin Taylor), the kind necessary for a head of government, but it was an ignoble thing to divorce his wife, who had waited for him the whole time he was a prisoner of war in Vietnam, and marry another woman in clear violation of what the Bible says about marriage.
Will I vote for McCain, or will I abstain?
