This is part confession of what I have been guilty of in the past. I was set free from it awhile ago and I’m grateful for that. Some clarification might help for this post. It’s ok to be a member of a political party. There are good reasons to do that. The problem becomes when we so equate our identity with a political party that we forget or are blinded to who we really are. When we can’t imagine leaving our party because it is so tied to who we are, then we have a problem. And we have a serious problem in this country right now with this very thing.
