Every Vote Counts
I listened to a little of the Democratic convention, but that little was enough to convince me that the Democratic party is controlled by those who are anti-life and anti-traditional marriage, and that if they win in November freedom of religion will be under attack. Can anyone who listened to them booing God and Jerusalem doubt their intention?
Therefore, I believe that every pro-life, pro-family person of faith has an obligation to vote against any candidate running under the Democrat label.
I know there are other issues, but they are all prudential matters upon which people of good faith may disagree. Life, marriage, and religious freedom are non-negotiable.
When you vote for a candidate, you are voting for that person’s party. The first vote that a Democrat elected to Congress will make is for the party leader and if that vote gives control, then the stage is set for the Democrats to push their agenda.
Some friends have suggested that they don’t like either party and will vote for a third party or not vote at all. At such a critical time, when everything is on the line, that is a cop out. Such a stance is at the least ½ a vote for the Democrat. This election is going to be close and every vote will matter.
Of course, we must do more than vote, we must pray and fast. We must beg the Lord not to punish our nation for the innocent blood shed by abortion, but have mercy on us for the sake of those who have fought and continue to fight to stop the slaughter.
