I am a conservative Christian who happens not to be a loyal Republican. I am strongly pro-life and absolutely opposed to abortion, but in favor of a lot of gay rights, despite my firm belief and conviction that homosexuality is an abomination against nature and a sin in the eyes of God. I have generally libertarian leanings except when it comes to certain issues, such as animal cruelty and child abuse. I also believe in an independent work ethic and do not think individuals should rely on the government for money and financial support. I would describe myself as a compassionate conservative, but I don't always think conservatives are compassionate, which I hope to change. I desperately hope Barack Obama does not enter the White House, as I think it would undermine our core values. I look forward to improving Conservapedia and strengthening the conservative movement.
