Hold leaders accountable

I appreciate Lucinda Kinsinger’s col­umns but have another view related to “Why I’m not voting” (Nov. 6). Through the free will given to God’s people, leaders are chosen. Some choices are bad, some are better and some even very good, perhaps. To be sure, God uses imperfect people to carry out God’s purposes. However, when leaders support corrupt policies, speak falsehoods and carry on in ways that are totally against God’s ways, then I cannot support such leaders. Evil does not deserve respect or support. We can pray and hold appropriate respect at the same time as calling out evil from even the highest offices in our land. It is our duty as followers of Jesus.
