Tomi Lahren. Ben Shapiro. Back at it again.
Yes, it is in fact a basic requirement to be pro – life to be considered a true conservative, especially a conservative titan like Lahren is on social media.
The Achilles heel to Lahren’s popularity among conservatives is her stance on abortion and her pro abortion views. Shapiro has made it clear in the past that he is not a fan of Lahren and has often poked fun at her on his podcast. At least when I used to listen.
Why did I quit listening to his podcast? I feel weird supporting non – Christians and because each day it was the same outrage routine. I get tired of being mad at people because of their political beliefs.
With the recent debates surrounding the chance of Roe v Wade being overturned, it was only a matter of time before Shapiro and Lahren threw jabs at each other again on social media. Below are some highlights of the recent exchange:
Shapiro got into a recent altercation with Candace Owens on Twitter and she used the “conservative thought police” argument against Shapiro, so I am assuming that Lahren saw that nickname from her exchange. This conservative thought police view been a recent argument against Shapiro as he is often viewed as the thought leader among conservative evangelicals and conservative millennials.
She does make a strong point here. Shapiro was definitely anti-Trump during the campaign, but he was not as strongly opposed to Trump as was Glenn Beck. Nonetheless, there have been decent arguments that conservatism would be healthier if Hilary would have become President.
Here is where Lahren makes her weak point:
Abortion has and will continue to be a hotly debated issue in America. It is still a strongly held belief that abortion should be illegal among conservatives and definitely is a belief among evangelicals. Pro Life should be the only viewpoint among evangelicals, but some “Christians” still try and argue the latter. To be pro choice is to really be pro abortion, but that does not sound as nice when trying to debate the viewpoint.
I pray that Lahren and other Christians see the flaws of their views and repent. The view that life is okay to be stopped is utterly inhumane and immoral at every level of the child’s life. The life that God has breathed into us is something that should not be interfered with and certainly not destroyed.
There are also many fans of Shapiro in the Christian world. Sure, his political beliefs are common among millennial Christians, but we should be cautious in holding him up in such high esteem. Take this recent exchange he had on Jesus Christ, for example:
I thought Shapiro was going to have some intellectually thought out response on why he does not accept Jesus Christ as the Messiah, but I was proven wrong. His long, thought out political beliefs have been met with a short, narrow minded view of Christ. Shapiro exposes himself as an uneducated Jewish man on the history of the TRUE Messiah, Jesus Christ.
We all need to pray that his heart and the Jewish people’s hearts will be opened to Jesus Christ and that they will be filled with the Holy Spirit and repent, so we can see them in heaven as well. We need to be cautious and loving when witnessing to the Jewish people and express the love that we have for them. It is my understanding that Shapiro works with many Christians, so we should pray that God’s Will is done through them with Ben Shapiro.
