Bart Campolo is the son of high-profile Christian speaker, author and sociologist Tony Campolo. Bart became a Christian in his teens and went on to run an inner city Christian youth ministry. However Bart recently announced that he had lost his faith altogether and become a Humanist chaplain.
Justin interviews Bart alongside Sean McDowell. Sean also has a well-known father in ministry – Josh McDowell. But when Sean experienced his own crisis of faith he found the rational basis he needed to support his faith. Justin chats to Bart about the reasons for his deconversion as spelled out in a recent documentary ‘Leaving My Father’s Faith’, and Sean responds to Bart’s newly adopted Humanist perspective.

“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
This is Alexander Hamilton’s (a Federalist) view on the vicious and divisive election season of 1800 to vote for who would be the 3rd president of the US. The quote implies he would rather have Jefferson (an anti-federalist) win as opposed to the enemy within his own party (John Adams).
The advice seems pertinent in our current context of the 2016 election as many true conservatives and small government libertarians see both major party candidates as an enemy.
This is not a call to actually vote for Hillary if you are a conservative but it is a call to NOT VOTE for Trump.
