Continued from yesterday …
When the election came around, I voted for Senator John McCain. I was actually a Mike Huckabee supporter, but seeing as to how he had dropped out of the race, I decided to vote for the lesser of two evils.
I say this, because although Mr. McCain is a professing Christian, many of his positions are blatantly unbiblical. The very fact that he jumped on the bandwagon of the late Senator, boozer, criminal, womanizer and suspected murderer, Ted Kennedy tells me all I need to know about the man.
I say that voting for McCain was voting for the lesser of two evils, because at least his running mate was a truly devout, firm in her stance believer and Mr. Obama’s was, as impossible as it seems, every bit as ungodly in his voting record as he was. At least with McCain in office there would have been some glimmer of hope that Sarah Palin might have had a hand in the crafting of policies.
All of that is past, but Mr. McCain is once again in the news, or at least his wife and daughter are. While one of McCain’s few firmly conservative and biblically sound positions is that marriage should be preserved as being between one man and one woman, his wife Cindy and their daughter Meghan have been posing for photographs aimed at promoting the homosexual agenda by calling for a repeal of the voter confirmed strike down of a California law which had made same sex “marriage” legal in that State.
Mr. McCain can say all he wants to that he is against homosexual unions, but so long as his wife and daughter are actively promoting the same, he does not meet the requirement of having his wife and child under Godly submission. While some will argue that such belief is antiquated and outdated, the fact remains that in laying out the requirements for godly leaders God Himself said Mr. McCain is responsible for the actions of his wife and daughter.
While Meghan, 25, is considered by many to be representative of the future of the Republican Party, the very fact that she found it necessary to use vulgarity in her comments concerning the “war” currently brewing within said party, shows me that she lacks the very moral base which made the party great. Indeed, if she is the future of the party, then the party has no future, at least not one which includes Bible believing conservatives such as once made it strong.
Yes, I know that the mainline, liberal, leftist, media wants us to believe that there are no more Bible believing conservatives in America, or at least none capable of putting forth a legitimate argument on social issues, but this week’s election of Republican Scott Brown to replace the late Senator Kennedy should be something of a wake up call to those believers who are tempted to lean left. We the people, the ones for whom the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights were written, do not want some socialist representing us in Congress.
This special election, which only a week ago was being touted as the key to success on the part of the Democrats for the proposed healthcare overhaul, has turned into the salvation of free enterprise, democracy and our economy. After all, if Mr. Obama could not run General Motors without casting it to the wolves, how on earth could he run the healthcare system, which constitutes more than one sixth of the nation’s economy.
This coming November, we in Southern Indiana will have some very important decision to make regarding who we want to represent us. Please realize that in any one of these races, there is not a single truly conservative, Bible believing incumbent.
However, there are some solid, Bible believing candidates running whom I hope you will sincerely consider backing. For 9th District U.S. Representative that candidate is Travis Hankins, for U.S. Senate it is Marlin Stutzman and just across the line in Illinois there is a man whom, because I have recently learned that some of my readership is in southeastern Illinois, I am officially endorsing, Mr. Patrick Hughes.
These men have committed themselves to serving our nation in a manner which Hankins refers to as being “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican in that order.” I want to once again urge local believers to look into these men if they are running in a race which you will help to decide.
I know that often it is easy to get stuck in the rut of “my one little vote doesn’t matter.” That maybe true in the case of the presidential election, with the Electoral College making the final decision, but we can make ourselves heard in a manner which is loud and clear if we will but send to Congress, Senators and Representatives who will not back down to the Obamamen and will stand fro the values of we real, believing Americans, who will not fall prey to the allure of unholy activities which become more available to those who possess large amounts of authority, who are true blue, red blooded Americans and who have the birth certificates to prove it.
However, this will never happen until our local pastors decide to stand up and preach the need for believers to vote their conscience rather than their pocket books. For those who fear crossing the line between Church and State, remember that Benjamin Franklin, in addressing the Constitutional Convention in 1787 said, “ God governs in the affairs of man. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid? We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it. I firmly believe this. I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel” and John Jay, our nation’s first Chief Justice, declared “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.”
