Opinion: I'm A Christian, And I'm A Republican, But I Repeat Myself
Opinion · Mar 1, 2019 · BabylonBee.com

Hey there, Lanny here. I'm an armchair theologian and an armchair political junkie. I also repair armchairs, funnily enough.

Just here today to let you know that I'm a Republican, and I'm also a Christian---but there I go again repeating myself. I'm kind of forgetful like that: I'll be going on telling someone about my faith in Christ, and then I'll switch gears and start telling them how I'm a staunch Republican, totally forgetting that they already knew that, since I told them I was a Christian. It's like, stop wasting everyone's time, dummy!

Funny how the brain works like that. I mean, I could tell you that I believe in Jesus and that the Bible is God's Word, or I could tell you that I believe in the 2nd Amendment and Donald Trump, but you would already have deduced that from my first statement. It's just redundant for me to go droning on and on about my politics when you can already assume that I'm a born-again believer in Donald Trump once I've let the cat out of the bag that I am a Christian.

Anyway, I'm gonna go to church later tonight if you'd like to join, and I'm also gonna go to a political rally---but you already knew that.
