Candidates to Consider

The ICGG is non-partisian, but that doesn’t mean we can’t recommend you check out or oppose certain candidates or incumbants for that matter.  We will give you our opinions and reasons and you can decide from there.

Here follow a list of candidates to consider or oppose that we recommend or disagree with.

Larry Dunn

Larry has just announced his running to replace State House representative Charlie Shephard.  Unlike a lot of stealth candidates that don’t say much to distinguish them from the pack, Larry is right up front about what he believes in.  Check out his website here and decide for yourself.

This excerpt from a public post of Larry’s tells you a lot about how this man thinks:

Just two years before writing his own dystopic novel, Orwell reviewed That Hideous Strength for the newspaper. Though he thought it was a good story, he didn’t seem to understand the point of the supernatural. He said that Lewis “…is entitled to his beliefs, but they weaken his story, not only because they offend the average reader’s sense of probability but because in effect they decide the issue in advance. When one is told that God and the Devil are in conflict, one always knows which side is going to win. The whole drama of the struggle against evil lies in the fact that one does not have supernatural aid.”
When looking at the future, those without a hope in Christ see two possible futures: either science leads to a socialist utopia where scarcity is eliminated and all people live together in brotherhood, or it leads to a totalitarian dystopia that is completely without hope. Christians must reject both visions, because of two things we believe to be true: Human nature doesn’t change and our God is sovereign.
C.S. Lewis understood that although God wins in the end, how that transpires in our own lives is largely up to us. Do we make ourselves useful for God? Do we follow His direction? Do we stand up for truth no matter the consequences?
In his epistle to the church at Ephesus, Paul wrote:
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12-13 ESV
No matter how dystopic our world becomes, no matter how hopeless our cause might seem, our course remains the same.
No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:37-39 ESV
