Vivek Ramaswamy’s Failure to Convert to Christianity is a Self-Inflicted Roadblock for His Political Future

The irrepressible Vivek Ramaswamy is a rising star in the GOP. He electrified the base with his fearless oratory. Vivek outworked and outclassed every candidate during the Republican Primary, even outshining Trump.

This self-made pharma billionaire injected much-needed energy into the GOP. He’s been a breath of fresh air for a party on life support due to its failure to adapt to its base. I believe after another Trump presidency, the GOP will be replaced by an America First-type party as it sinks into irrelevance.

After losing the Iowa primary, Vivek threw his support behind Trump. Smart move. He’s likely aiming for Trump’s VP slot or a spot in the cabinet if Trump wins, which looks increasingly probable.

For Vivek’s long-term political ambitions, becoming Trump’s VP would be ideal. After Trump’s second term, Vivek could leverage his experience to springboard into the GOP or America First nomination.

But there’s a problem: Vivek is a Hindu. And like it or not, America is still a Christian nation. Most GOP voters are older and Christian. Many Americans don’t trust Indians, let alone Hindus who worship thousands of gods.

Converting to Christianity would be easy for Vivek. He spent four years at St. Xavier Catholic High School in Cincinnati and already holds a worldview steeped in Roman Catholic values. Unlike tech moguls like Sundar Pichai and Satya Nadella, Vivek appreciates Christianity’s role in Western civilization. Prominent Indian-Americans like Dinesh D’Souza and Nikki Haley have already converted. India also has a sizable Catholic population. It just makes sense.

Here’s Vivek’s list of principles as a candidate:

  1. God is real.
  2. There are two genders.
  3. Human flourishing requires fossil fuels.
  4. Reverse racism is racism.
  5. An open border is no border.
  6. Parents determine the education of their children.
  7. The nuclear family is the greatest form of governance known to mankind.
  8. Capitalism lifts people up from poverty.
  9. There are three branches of the U.S. government, not four.
  10. The U.S. Constitution is the strongest guarantor of freedoms in history.

Solid principles, no doubt. But “God is real” raises a theological issue. Which of Hinduism’s thousands of gods is he referring to? As a Christian, I believe in one true God. A conversion to Christianity would eliminate this contradiction, but it must be sincere. Many question Trump’s commitment to Christianity, but at least he backs his faith with action: pro-life policies, opposing the trans agenda, and acknowledging the persecution of Christians.

Converting would have downsides, sure. But Indian immigrants would still vote for a Trump-Vivek ticket in 2024, and Christians wary of Vivek’s Hindu faith would be more likely to support him.

There can be no doubt that since its founding in 1776, God has blessed the United States of America. The U.S.A. superpower is the torch bearer of Western Civilization which was itself informed by Christendom. Hindus could never have built America with their primitive beliefs and their caste system which creates vast gulfs between the rich and poor. America was only possible because of the leadership and efforts of white Christian men. The highly intelligent Ramaswamy knows this. What better way for him to symbolically graft himself on to the Great American Tree than to convert to Christianity?

If Vivek Ramaswamy wants a bright future in American politics, he needs to seriously contemplate converting to Christianity. The sooner, the better.
