Have you heard people say that you’re just a one issue voter? You’re pro-life on abortion but you need to be pro-life until natural death. You need a more biblically balanced view and address other issues that are just as important, such as racism, poverty and healthcare. Dr. Ron Sider, a politically liberal evangelical, makes that case in a new blog.

Frank responds that equating all those issues makes four major mistakes, including ignoring the teaching of Jesus. This is an important show as we enter the home stretch of the election season.

    If abortion is immoral, why is it that in 2014, 62% of women who had abortions identified as, “religious”? Only 8% of that number identified as “non-Christian”, and the remaining 38% identified as, “non-religious”, including Atheists… Proving yet again, that Atheists hold higher moral standards than Christians.–

    If you are voting for trump because you feel that every aborted person deserves a "right to life", I have a question for you. – If a law was enacted that forced every fertile woman to be inseminated and give birth to as many children as she could possibly bear, would you support that law? If not, which of those children would NOT have a right to life? Let me be clear; by being against this law, these children would never be born. It would be YOUR choice (and all of those who voted with you), that these souls would never get to have a temporary earth visit.


    Also, if you are a woman who could produce more children, why do those souls not have a "right to life"? Or are you only pro-choice for yourself?

    God is pro life. But also pro infanticide.

    Yes there is a sin hierarchy. I'm pro-life, but I'm not anti-abortion. Abortion should not be made illegal, but it should be discourage and preferably only for used for medically emergencies. (I'm also ok with abortion being used in cases of rape and incest.) Frank Turek makes good points with his idea of a moral hierarchy. Abortion should be restricted and limited. This is a good podcast. I pray it keeps growing in listeners. I love this ministry. Keep up the good work. God bless this ministry.

    I'm definitely pro-life and agree with much of what Frank had to say but many of his retorts had holes and could have easily been challenged by scripture. The GREATEST command is to love God and love your neighbor and while the unborn are most definitely our neighbors, it seems like we Christians get too political and forget our other neighbors.

    That said, I disagree with Frank politically but love his apologetics ministry. In that regard, please keep doing your thing, Frank!

    Frank Turek is awesome! I’ve read most of his books and bought quite a few “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist “ books for coworkers and family members who are atheist. This book and all of his podcasts have helped me so much in apologetics as well as my walk with the Lord.
    Also read “stealing from God”…excellent.

    Frank, I need you to come to my church in VA to do a “I don’t have enough faith to be an atheist “ sermon with Q&A like you have been doing…I will pay all expenses for you…Come on down!

    Anyone who thinks that prolife people don't care about other social issues needs to get out more. That is totally ignorant.

    If I talked someone out from committing suicide, am I now personally responsible for that guy for the rest of their natural life? This seems to me that if pro-choice accuses anti-abortionists with this principle then they must hold those in suicide hotlines and psychologists in the same standard since they're practically doing the same thing: saving lives.

    God killed millions of little children and babies still in the mothers womb.
    That's immoral.

    Leftists profess to hate stereotypes; but then they deceive through the use of generalities. Stereotypes and generalities are the same thing.

    Christians DO NOT feel obligated to vote for Trump! If you want to, then ok. But there are SEVERAL names on the ticket besides Biden/Trump! And some are pro-life!

    All of this is because liberals are stuck virtue signaling inside their echo chamber of collectivism even against the evidence, 100 million dead people, of its failure. They are bound by their weakness of self conscientiousness in the face of public opinion and public opinion is not being guided by Christian values.

    Pro-choice arguments are not made in favor of abortion, per se. Nobody is necessarily "for" abortion. Taking a human life is never a pretty thing. It's about a woman's right to decide whether she allows another person to use her body for their own survival. Everyone has that right, not just women.
    Say you're driving recklessly and we get into a nearly fatal crash to where the only way I will live is if I have a blood transfusion. You are the closest person with a compatible blood type at ready access. Would you be okay if some government legislation forced you to give me that transfusion, or would you rather know that YOU had the choice to allow me to use your body to stay alive? The answer should be obvious. Of course it would be unfortunate if I died, but my right to live ends where your bodily autonomy begins. Everybody has the right to life, but not at the expense of another person without their permission. It's always been about consent. If every human has equal rights (which I assume you believe that's the case) you cannot grant special privilege to anyone. With this being the case, if I do not have the special privilege to use your body to stay alive without your consent, neither does a two-year-old, and neither does an unborn baby. It's as simple as that.

    Oh, but you may counter with a statement like, "Well, she should've used protection." or, "She was automatically consenting to pregnancy when she decided to have sex!"
    Wrong. Getting in a car crash is not the primary purpose of driving, just as pregnancy is not the primary purpose of sex. If you believe this, then you should probably tell every women over 40 or any man who is sterile or has had a vasectomy to practice celibacy. Sex and driving both have a similar purpose: to arrive.
    When a person gets into a car they are making the unspoken acknowledgement that they could possibly get in a collision, but that doesn't mean they are consenting to it. Big difference.

    Conservatives are not "pro-life". This shows in the assistance programs they constantly vote against. They are absolutely anti-choice.

    To be clear, I do not agree with abortion in the context of convenience that many people have used it for, but at the end it the day it's the woman's choice and she must live with her decision. Most moral situations are not always black and white as many Christians would have you believe.

    I love how Christians have so many excuses they can use in an attempt to rationalize the Biblical god's immorality. For example, I've heard Frank Turek say, "Atheists don't have a standard of morality apart from god. So, they can't say such-and-such actions are wrong." Okay. Then let's judge God's actions by the standards he sets for us.

    "He who knows to do good, and does not do good, to him it is sin." (James 4:17)

    "Thou shall not murder." (Exodus 20:13)

    "Thou shall not covet." (Exodus 20:17)

    Are Christians truly prepared to argue that god is just, even by the standard of morality he sets out for us? I don't think so because I've heard countless Christians argue that God is above his standard of morality. So, morality doesn't apply to God. That's one step away from outright admitting, "No, god violates his own law of morality which he demands us to obey with threat of eternal torture."

    Such a weak argument. They say "you only care about the baby before it is born".

    Okay, so what makes you think I "care" about it before it is born?

    "Because you don't want to kill it"

    I see. So "caring" denotes "not wanting to kill it", and if I feel the same way after it is born, I therefore DO care after it is born.

    I'm confused why the Biblical god killed millions of babies, yet some Christians believe he is against it.

    If you don't want abortions, vote for better sex ed. More people being informed means less accidents.
    You can't force people not to have sex, but you can teach them about contraseptives.

    Absinence only is an absulute failure where it has been supported. This made Texas not only number one in teen pregnancies but also in REPEAT teen pregnancies. It's a disgrace.

    God himself performed an abortion himself in the Book of Numbers, so why all the hate on it?
