Massive coverage of the “Can a Christian be a Libertarian” WaPo article

I want to take a moment and say how thankful I am for the opportunity to write for the Washington Post, and how thankful I am to everyone, LCC readers and otherwise, who helped share it with other people. The importance of sharing information such as this cannot be overestimated, getting the word out there is critical and it needs to be discussed amongst scholars, churchmen, pastors, laymen, seminarians, and students. Otherwise, no beliefs will be changed, no minds will be won over. The activity I saw on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ regarding the article was incredible, and I truly appreciate all of my friends who valued it enough to share it with others. Over 300 people commented on

The coverage that the article received was massive, and I imagine that it has been the most widely disseminated piece I have ever written. I can only hope that it will bring more and more people to a better of understanding of Christianity and liberty.

Many other websites mentioned it as well, here is a list of a number of places where I saw links to the piece in some way. Some are just quotes and a link, some are positive, and some are negative. Nonetheless, I appreciate it.

There are many more, I am sure. Feel free to add more in the comments. Overall, I saw hundreds of Facebook shares, hundreds of Twitter mentions, and hundreds upon hundreds of comments on articles all over the net. Thanks again!

One of the best results is that the piece has skyrocketed to the top of search engine results for searches including both “Christian” and “libertarian”. has historically been ranked very highly as well, and so this raises the visibility of the site and our viewpoints even more. Outstanding!
