The Real Reason Why Some Christians Won't Vote for a Mormon (when they should)Tweet
Here's the deal. There are Christians who will not vote, under any circumstances, for Mitt Romney for President. Their thinking? If they vote for a Mormon, then they are condoning, supporting Mormonism or worse ~ promoting, trumpeting it.
This simply doesn't make sense. (For a great article on it: Debunking the 'Can't Vote for Mormon' Belief, click here.)
These same Christians shop at stores and malls that have Mormons as clerks and managers. Is that condoning, supporting, promoting, trumpeting Mormonism? They go to sporting events with Mormons who play on their favorite teams. Their kids go to schools that, well maybe the particular teacher of little Johnny or sweet Suzy isn't a Mormon, but the receptionist is ~ and maybe even the Principal and the School Board is, too? I could go further and talk about your mail person (ours is female), your mechanic, the plumber, the interior decorator of your home, etc. And I guess I could put in just about any person and any person's religion as an example.
So if they're not a Christian, we should never vote for them? (Again, see the article link above.)
The fact is there are no perfect candidates. But there are some better than others (aside from their religion). Way better.
I am convinced that if America is lost, it will be in part because the Christians let her be lost. Don't let it be said!
