Jay Polk – Devout Christian and Libertarian

It would seem there is something of a national phenomena sweeping the country. People, from both sides of the aisle are declaring themselves to be “libertarian.”

One interesting factor in this movement is the rise of the Christian Evangelical libertarian. In recent history, these terms may have been as polar opposites as East and West. But today, individuals are deciding that the proper politics of an Evangelical Christian is to be libertarian.

One such person, Jay Polk, is a Bible believing Christian who also chairs the Libertarian Party of Tennessee.  See his story below.

Polk makes a point that Jesus would probably not endorsed libertarianism, or any other faction or political party in this instance. What Jay Polk is getting at is that the most moral society is one where they submit to Jesus on their own free will.
