But the flyer does obviously get at a friction that does exist: a vision of society based on the free market and self-interest does not conform neatly with the social values of the gospels. Eighteenth-century British writers, for example, knew this well and fretted about it constantly. It's taken a lot of ideological/naturalizing work to reduce this friction, but it's still visible.

There is no such friction, as "charity" forced at gunpoint is not charity at all.

"*I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17).

*I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who don't (Genesis 12:3).

*I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7).

*I will vote for the most pro-work candidate, because God says if a man does not work, let him not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

*I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in (Genesis 2:24).

*I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes governments purpose is to reward the good and punish the evil (Romans 13).

*I will vote based as closely as I can on God’s word (2 Timothy 3:16), knowing whoever gets elected, God is the One who puts all men in authority (Daniel 2:21)."

Lots of Instagram ballot posting and ensuing arguments about whether it's legal.
