Will Christians Stay Home on Nov. 7?

Many, including me, believe that conservative Christians carried the day for President Bush in November 2004. There have been murmurs since then that the president hasn't given enough attention to issues which are important to Christians. Will that cause those same Christians to stay home on November 7 or vote democratic?

I hope not but some believe that the republicans have reason to be concerned. I've advocated for months on this blog that Christians should vote for candidates who not only give lip-service to, but actually believe and follow a Christian worldview. And more often than not I find that republican candidates share that worldview. Some democratic candidates express their support for positions such as pro-life, pro-marriage, etc. But the problem is that on state and national levels the democratic party supports pro-choice and homosexual rights positions. Those are certainly not Christian worldviews.

Others advocate that there is no place in politics for religion. I disagree complete. (If you have time, run a google search for Heather MacDonald and read some of her other articles). If Christians stay away from the political process then there is no stopping the moral decline of our culture.

So, Christians, get out and vote. Early voting is already underway in many places.

We were just talking about this at lunch. We were discussing Barack Obama and I said as nice of a guy as he seems I am a firm believer that you can not vote for the "man" without voting for his party.

No matter what a candidate believes on a personal level, the majority of the Democratic party are liberal in their moral views. Therefore they will always vote against those things that most Christians feel are important.

I'm going to do something with my two daughters this year for voting, especially because this is my youngest daughter's first time to vote. We're going to all sit down and vote together (in Oregon we have vote-by-mail). I think by doing this, it will hopefully cause them to take an active role in one of our free rights as an american.
