True conservatives are those who live by the teachings of Jesus and by the ten commandments.
They are concerned with the poor, the sick and the outcasts of society. They scorn hypocrisy and are quick to point it out.
They do not lie or steal, nor are they covetous. They respect God’s gift of sex, remembering that it is for the family.
They respect the dignity of all human beings, remembering that God made us in his own image.
They are kind to strangers, remembering that the Israelites were admonished to do so, because they had been strangers in Egypt.
They welcome refugees, remembering that Jesus was a refugee in Egypt.
By these criteria, are our present leaders true conservatives?
Are they instead false conservatives, who put money and power first? Are they hypocrites who say one thing and do another?
Do they promote peace and unity or conflict and polarization?
