About the Politically Moderate Christian
Since there are many political issues under the sun, it’s highly improbable that one party’s view would align with the will of God on every issue. As Christians, we are called to let the Bible teach us right from wrong, not our parties.
As moderates, we are not wishy-washy. Rather, we may stand strong with one party on an issue, while differing from the more extreme elements of that party on other issues, and sometimes even agreeing with the opposing party. In many cases, we may walk the middle ground between two extremes, because, if both sides have valid concerns, it only makes sense to find common ground if such common ground exists.
This site is dedicated to promoting political ideals consistent with the Bible. Its posts attempt plead the cause of the powerless, as the Bible commands us to do. Posts will also attempt to counter deceptive political rhetoric, since we Christians are called to promote the truth. In the end, the goal of this site is to better align our minds, hearts, and souls with the will of God, and to strengthen our relationship with God and others.
This site is founded by me, K. Scott Schaeffer. I started out as a hardcore Republican in my teens, became a right-leaning Independent in my 20’s, a left-leaning Independent in my 30’s, and, finally, I registered as a Democrat in 2012, when it became apparent to me that the Republicans have fully rejected Eisenhower Republicanism and have fully re-embraced Gilded Age Robber-Baron Republicanism in which the party exploits America for the sake of the corporate wealthy. That’s why you will find the majority of posts on this site refuting the Republicans. I am, however, a moderate Democrat who owns guns (but no assault weapons), opposes regulations that impose unnatural products on us (like fluorescent light bulbs and flame-retardant chemicals in cars and mattresses – many people, including myself, are sensitive or allergic to these things), is no fan of the ACLU trying to remove all signs of Christianity from our landscape, and when given the choice between PETA and Five Guys Burgers and Fries, I’m going with the burgers.
I currently reside just a few miles outside of Philadelphia, PA. I grew up in New Berlinville and Bechtelsville, PA and attended Penn State before receiving my degree from Belmont University in Nashville, TN. I am neither a pastor, professor, pundit, nor politician. I’m just a guy who loves to study the Bible, economics, history, and astronomy. My writing combines what I’ve learned with my experiences in the church and my nearly 20 years of corporate sales experience in which I’ve witnessed more than I care to of the demonic forces of greed and pride.
I’ve been out of work since February 2014 due to Irlen’s Syndrome, which is a neurological-optical disorder in which Fluorescent and LED lighting cause severe immune system reactions. Computer lighting is also a problem, which is why I must limit my computer time and stay off it completely at night (and I can’t do physical labor jobs thanks to complications from my 2010 hernia operation, nor can I drive regularly, because wavy windshields also have severe effects). I am not on SS Disability, however, so my only income is what you donate. So if you support my ministry, anything you donate will be much appreciated.

I also would love for you to read my book,”Rescuing Religion from Republican Reason.” It uses the Bible, history, economic data, and common sense to refute the false moralities, historical misrepresentations, and economic deceptions of the self-proclaimed Christian party – the Republicans – especially with regard to the issues of money and business. It does so by:
*Including 150 Bible passages that collectively oppose Republican ideology
*Examining the atrocities of the late 1800s and early 1900s, when Republican doctrine ruled America
*Refuting over 20 deceptive Republican economic arguments
*Revealing the other-centered nature of God’s laws
*Exposing the wealth-centered nature of Republican principles
*Shooting down the “what’s right” arguments of the Republicans, so we can focus on doing “what works” for most people, all of whom are created in God’s image.
