Jesus over Romney

Jesus over Romney

The blog that has been linked is a wonderful example of how some people are truly more concerned about spreading Jesus than spreading politics.

Also, this link: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/03/cnn-religion-blogger-attacks-christian-conservatives-for-supporting-romney/ , criticizes a Christian for being anti-Romney just on the basis of his beliefs (Romney as a Mormon). I feel as though, as a Christian leader, that not supporting Romney on the basis of his religion is a fine reason not to vote for him. First, one’s religion should shape everything that one does. Second, most evangelical Christians want a return of American to Christian belief seen in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Voting in a non-Christian will not accomplish this. Third, the argument has been made that most Mormons do not understand their own beliefs, and that we will see many Mormons in heaven. This very well may be true, but the fact remains that the President above most people should be held accountable for their actions and their beliefs. If their personal beliefs do not line up with the religion that they have followed their entire life, they need to make a split. Lastly, even though this is a fallacious argument, most evangelicals would not vote for a Muslim (fact: Obama is NOT a Muslim), therefore why in the world would that same person vote for a Mormon? (Question of the century). Also fact: Islam is much closer to Christianity than Mormonism.

If religion, is not a basis on which you vote, then by all means, vote for who you feel is the best candidate. But, if you are an evangelical, who wants Christianity to prosper throughout the earth, then voting for a non-Christian seems not to accomplish this at all.

From one who supports neither candidate, Harrison.
